Riding By........



It's a miserable day here in the southern portion of Texas........ so cold, rainy, windy, and just generally ucky!!! So what better time to STAMP! I probably should be working on our income taxes - but hey, who wants to ever do that!!!

This picture was taken outside (before the rain and cold hit) against a barn wood bench. I AM going to be working on building a "light box" as soon as I find the right size box. Some of my pictures don't don't come out right - color wise.


I think I could make a card every day with this cute stamp set from Our Craft Lounge that I got at i {heart} papers! This little bicycle has so many accessories you can add to it. On this one, I added the little streamers on the handle bars, the "happy birthday" sign flying in the breeze, and the basket with the dog and cat in it. The patterned paper is from Paper Studio and I zig-zagged around it with the trusty old sewing machine. I added a small pink button to the center of the front wheel and then, of course, added the pink bow. I colored the image with Bic markers, SU markers, and ONE Copic! Yes, I broke down and bought ONE Copic marker the other day. I know, last of the big time spenders, right!!


Thanks for stopping by.............
