Bicycles for Club

Today I wanted to share the second card we made at stamp club on Friday night.   This month has not been a creative one for me, so I turned to my Pinterest boards for some inspiration.   I just loved this card by Julie Davison and was inspired to make one!  Now I wish I'd put an Early Espresso layer between the image panel and torn dsp.  Hmm....maybe I need to make another one?!  :)

Stamps:  Feeling Sentimental
Ink:  Soft Suede, Early Espresso
Paper: Soft Suede, Very Vanilla, First Edition DSP, Neutrals DSP stack
Tools/Accessories:  Stamp-a-ma-jig, Color Spritzing Tool, Neutrals buttons, Early Espresso baker's twine

I heard Laila wake up from her nap the other day but then it got really quiet in her room.  I decided to go check on her and here's what I found.   She managed to pull her butterfly light down into the crib and turn it on.  Nothing is safe from this girl now!   She's finally starting to feel better, but her nose is still running.  I hate to see her sick.   It seems like every time we take her around other kids she ends up with something.  I know we can't keep her isolated forever, but man!  We went to visit her cousins last Sunday and a few days later she was sick.  I guess we'll just have to hope that she starts building up some immunity at some point.  


  1. Love the way you've done the bicycle! I'm sure the ladies loved their cards!

  2. I love your card. That is one of my favorite stamp sets from Sale-a-bration and I love how you stamped your ink.
    Hope your little girl is feeling better soon too.

  3. Beautiful card!!! and a smart girl, your little Laila!

  4. WOW! I LOVE this card....on my CASE list for sure! Awesome vintage feel to it!

  5. Your card is lovely as it is! I made a similar design with the bike for a swap a few months ago and it was CASEd as well, but she had four images - my older ink would not take me that far...and would not have worked on the cut out...! Would love to see a second one, but again, nothing at all wrong with this one!

  6. Forgot to mention Laila's little 'trick'....what a great and daddy won't have much time left to turn your backs on her...but we all go through it...enjoy it!


I love comments! Thanks so much for stopping by to say hello. :)
