One-Layer Wednesday #42

Today was awesome...let me count the ways.
  1. I wore one of the dresses that I bought over the weekend. I bought it, I might as well wear it right away! No sense in have it sit in the closet. It had a bright pink floral print. Hello, Spring! Are you here yet?
  2. I went for a 4.85 mile run this afternoon after work, inspired by this running post by BenDoesLife. 4.85 miles used to sound daunting, but it's beginning to feel normal. Woot!
  3. I got an Etsy sale today (4 cards!) from a repeat buyer (I love fans).
  4. Related to 2 and 3, I bought new running shoes online on RunningWarehouse, and they let me pay via PayPal. I like how money from one hobby (selling cards) is supporting another hobby (running). I can't wait to give them a whirl when they arrive in the mail.
  5. I made this yummy tuna pasta salad with peas that I found on Budget Bytes. I did my own spin on it by adding some mustard, one more can of tuna, and one whole diced orange pepper for some extra veggies. Yum.
I haven't done a One-Layer Wednesday challenge in a while, but I'm glad I stopped by tonight because it gave me an excuse to use my music score background stamp. Challenge #42 focuses on music. I masked off a little panel so that I could put the sentiment inside the music. I like the splashy color against the subtle background.

Ink: Colorbox chalk ink in Blackbird, Warm Green, Warm Red, Wisteria, Prussian Blue. Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Antique Linen
Stamps: The Paper Company Studio- Greetings (sentiment), Fiskars- Friendship Garden (leaf), K.I. Memories- Logo Sushi (red flower), Inkadinkado (blue flower), Heidi Grace- Paradise (purple flower), Stampendous (music score)

I love the flowers against the musical score background and the splashes of colour look great! I agree with you - you feel that everything's balanced out when one hobby pays for another!
