Celebrate Today

Are you enjoying these past few days of incredibly warm weather?  I still pinch myself and remind myself that it is March and not June or July!  And this week's warm weather inspired me to bring my clunky old bicycle up from the basement and take it outside to enjoy some fresh air, sunshine and much needed exercise.

This wonderful Mo Manning digital stamp titled Mummu's Bike could be a picture of me. hair isn't as long as Mummu's, but otherwise, I think we could be sisters.  Mummu looks like she hasn't a care in the world and is simply celebrating the moment, i.e. Carpe Diem!
This week's challenge at Mo's Challenge Blog is "Bling it on" so I think with all of my flowers and sprigs and ribbons, my Mummu's bike card fits the challenge.

Card Recipe:
Stamps:  Mo's Manning Digital Stamp and Papertrey Ink (sentiment, "Celebrate today")
Ink:  Memento Bahama Blue and image colored with Copic markers
Designer Paper:  My Mind's Eye, Wild Asparagus
Accessories: Machine stitching, Offray Grosgrain ribbon, Martha Stewart scalloped eyelet border punch, paper flowers.

I'm on quite the bicycle kick now and have a few more bike/trike related items on my work table.

Until next time,

  7. Your coloring is "out of this world!!!" It looks so real I want to reach out and touch it. There I just did! I also love the color choices. And the card layout. And paper choices. You are my inspiration HP :)

  8. Oh and the sewing! And those flowers give the card such dimension. All the details. Love.

  9. You are totally mastering the Copics! Your coloring is super-duper incredible! Just love this card and I had to chuckle because my hair is fairly long (and in a braid today:), but thankfully the gray is not visible YET! I have been thinking of getting my bicycle out, but would need to move the s-n-o-wblower to the barn and about that time Mother Nature would remind me that it is only a few days past whineter and I couldn't move the drifts with my bike. Really love this card. Thanks for sharing. Happy sunny biking!

  10. I LOVE THIS! She's just super.
    Now how about one for us "Gimpettes" who have a 3 wheeler with a "Wizard of Oz" basket on the back for a small dog or shopping, or treasure hunts etc? haha.. Really.
