Running on Faith

Happy Sunday stampin' friends!  I'm a little late getting a post up today, but for good reason!  I was a busy running a half marathon with my hubby this 5th, his 1st!  I was really hoping to complete the race in 2 hours, but came in a little slower...2:05:58, which is a new PR for me, so I'm still totally happy with my time.  And I'm even more happy with the fact that I came in just 6 minutes behind my hubby...WOOT! 
I don't know about the rest of you runners out there, but I am always a nervous wreck the day before and day of a race, so I did all that I could yesterday and this morning to keep my mind off of the race.  Some of those things included carving a new stamp with my Undefined Stamp Carving KitI'm no artist when it comes to drawing, but I've been wanting to carve a running shoe for a while, so I gave it my best shot!  Not great by any means, but still fun!  I had carved my signature running girl shortly after Convention, so I added her to the card as well.  I don't like how the card itself turned out and will re-stamp it later.  This is what I worked on this morning before the race to help calm my nerves.
Supplies Used:
Paper ~ Night of Navy, Whisper White, Calypso Coral and Night of Navy Core'dinations
Ink ~ Night of Navy, Calypso Coral, VersaMark
Stamp Sets ~ Gorgeous Grunge, Undefined Stamp Carving
Other Supplies ~ White Embossing Powder
I also created an MDS page this afternoon, post-race, as I let my tired legs recover :)
The sketch came from the Simply My Digital Studio Facebook weekly challenge...I love how Kimberly and Heather help keep me moving forward with my MDS creations! 
Thanks for stopping by today and be sure to stop by again!
Happy Stamping and Happy Running!
