After the Climb

I realized after the fact that without the race name (St.Louis Fight For Air Climb) and my bib number (76) you would not be able to see me at that last step.  Now, if you still want to see me, just click the link on that post and add the above information... OR, here I am with my daughter and her partner after we had caught our breath and after we had gone down the 40 flights, in the elevator of course.  I still look pretty raw but then, some of that is just ole me...  here ya go:

It's Been A While Cuz I Was Busy Climbing Stairs!

I have been busy.  I don't think I have been so proud of myself in years as I was last Saturday when I climbed 40 flights of stairs for the American Lung Association, in the Fight For Air Climb!!!  It took a while.  My daughter and her partner climbed with me and we did it on my schedule, finishing in 23 minutes.  To see me abject joy of having completed it, just click HERE.  That's my daughter behind me...It was definitely difficult but definitely worth it.  Anyone want to join me next year????

I have been creating just a little.  Below are 2 things I completed, both for my OSA Yahoo group.  The first is my March MOSAS swap.  I found the tutorial on Splitcoast Stampers and used a technique called the dryer sheet technique.  I simply stamped and colored an image and ran it through my Xyron (with the sticky side covering the image). I then placed a USED dryer sheet over the image and brayered it down to the sticky stuff. It gives a lovely muted touch to the stamped image.  I then added some Dazzling Diamonds very sparingly and brayered those down.  Unfortunately the image is a bit blurry.  I apologize but I tried over and over to work with it to no avail.  Here it is:

There was a card I wanted to send to another OSA member, so I used this week's card layout/sketch (#114):  It is very simple but I like how it turned out.  

I think I am all caught up now!!!  I appreciate all comments and thank you for them!!!
