FMS #43: Moving Forward

I think the title of today's post perfectly sums up my life this summer: moving forward! I feel like we are constantly on the go, with fun summer activities, swimming lessons, gymnastics, soccer, family trips and I'm training for a half marathon. Whew! It's a busy time in our house, and not much stamping has been getting done. I'm so glad that I have these sketches to look forward to each week - they give me a reason to dust off my stamps and do something just for me.

I love this week's sketch from Tui - a perfect way to show off some of your favorite designer papers. Stop by the Freshly Made Sketches blog for some more fantastic inspiration from the other design team member.
As I mentioned, I used the set Moving Forward for today's card. This is such an adorable set and it is this year's Ronald McDonald House Charities set - when you purchase it, SU! will donate $3 to RMHC.
Do you see those little mini brads in the centers of the tires? So cute! :) Thanks for stopping by today - I'm off and running again. 'Bye for now!
