Take a Deep Breath...

... and think of me, taking very deep breaths! Yes folks, today I have an autobiographical card to share with you - I've started running! Since I got my ridiculous new job a year ago, I've put on about a stone. Clearly, I'm not happy about this and neither are my clothes....especially my trousers and skirts! I don't want to give up nice food (aside from craft shopping, it's my only real vice), so the only other option is to up the exercise. So, next time you wake up after a nice long lie-in, think of me... red faced and puffing away!

I have to say, I really do love this card. Not sure if it is the colour combo or the amazing image that do it for me (did I mention recently that I love Mayzy Art images?!), but I just can't help smiling when I look at it. If only all cards fell together this easily, eh?
