Cardio is Hardio!

Hello friends and thanks for stopping by today.  The new year inevitably brings new resolutions and many of us promise to exercise more.  The new Taylored Expressions set, Exercise Grumplings (with matching dies), turns our resolutions on their heads and expresses what's really in our heads!  I laughed out loud when I saw these cuties and I am sure you will agree.

The new Let's Talk Edger 3 die forms the perfect word bubble for this cute Grumpling, and the Little Bit dies of hamburger, french fries and donuts capture all the yummy food we don't want to give up!
