Does Running Late Count as Exercise?

  If so, I should be in great shape! lol

Happy Wednesday! Today is the day for the monthly Taylored Expressions Blast From the Past Blog Hop!!!

The theme this month is Clean and Simple (CAS). I have to confess, I struggle with this look. I started out just stamping this fun image called Belated Birthday - Running Late on plain white cardstock, thinking that would do it. But I just couldn't leave it alone... so I added the paper (October Afternoon), brads and ribbon. I'm afraid my card isn't photographing well... it looks a lot better IRL. My hippo looks like he needs a shave! lol



Enjoy the hop!!! Have a great day!!!
