Kindness Cards by Beth Pingry

Yes, they are fairly simple, which made it easy to make 18 of them in one evening, now I have enough to send and give as gifts!

Happy May, it looks like the weather has finally cooperated with the calendar! I’m gearing up for another half marathon on the 19th, with a plan to set another PR, or at least crush my time from last year on this one.

Thanks for stopping by!


I used these supplies:

So Thankful Card, and the Rest of the Half-Marathon Story

Thanks for tuning in today! I’ll start with part 2 of the half marathon. If you remember, I was going to run my first race of the year on April 6 outside of Milwaukee WI. Thank you to everyone that contributed to my fundraising effort, I made my goal and then some!

I ran a half marathon in November and beat my best time by 12 minutes. Yes, that’s almost a minute faster per mile in 11 months. I planned on taking some time off of running to let some things heal up, but actually, that didn’t happen. You see, I was on the elliptical machine at the gym, staring at the treadmills and well, I knew I couldn’t stop running.

Knowing I had this half marathon coming up, I bucked up the mileage again in January.  This race plan was different –  we were going to run at a set pace (slower than my normal pace), with planned walking between each mile.

There were 2 goals, one was to break the Guinness World Record for Most Runners Tethered together for a Half Marathon, the other was Most Money Raised for  Half Marathon.

Tethered, you ask? Like this:

Here we are starting the race, this is the timing mat we run over to start the official timer chips. The 2 dudes in yellow hats and the one right in front of me  were brothers, and they joked and cracked us up for the entire race!

We had orchestrated hand signals, walkie-talkie captains, even an official bathroom break, primitive style. We finished the race in just under 3 hours, and it seems initially that we broke both records. We’re just waiting on the official paperwork to go through the verification process.

Here’s the group of 103 runners and one of the 13-year-old clients, Matthew, of Lifestriders Therapeutic Riding Facility, an equine therapy facility for disabled people.  Matthew’s mom ran with us, and he waited for us at the end so she could push him across the finish line with the group!Beth Pingry Team Lifestriders

Oh look we made the TV news! And here is another video from the Lifestriders Facebook Page.

And this is my sister, her friend and me after the race, I’m looking rather fluffy (I had 5 layers on, it was chilly, a bit rainy and windy).

So my card today reflects how I feel to everyone that texted, Facebooked, donated, supported me in this endeavor! You can see more on how I made it, today my day to post on the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L Crafty Power Blog!

Craft It Forward Star Card

Scrapbooks etc. Craft It Forward - 120x120 blog button

Welcome to the Scrapbook Etc. Craft it Forward Blog Hop!

My card is pretty easy to create, and in fact you could make multiples in no time at all!

I started with a Waltzingmouse Stamp. Actually it’s from a Christmas collection, Seasons Of Love, but I love the design in the star!

It fits the Spellbinders™ Stars Five die template set perfectly!

I added the letters to spell out “thanks” and some bling.

All the die cuts were attached to the card with 3D Foam Squares from SCRAPBOOK ADHESIVES BY 3L™. I love the dimension they give when stacking and layering.

Other supplies used are WorldWin Papers CutMates in Blue Potatoes and Ripe Tomatoes; Want2Scrap Say it With Baby Bling pearls in Red, White and Blue, Cosmo Cricket Tiny Type letter stickers and Spellbinders Wonky Rectangles and Grand Calibur™ Machine.
