Simple things...small joys...

Last Sunday afternoon I spent a little time with our Grandgirl, Alexis.  Alexis is three years old and loves everything purple and pink.  She was eager to show me her new tricycle and what colors do you think it is?  Yep!  Her trike is purple and pink.  And what was Alexis wearing?  Yep!  Purple skirt and pink t-shirt!  When I discovered this Mo Manning digital stamp all I could envision was Alexis on her tricycle happily riding her tricycle.

Card Recipe:
Stamps:  Mo Manning and Papertrey Ink for the sentiment
Ink:  Memento Angel Pink and image colored with Copic Markers
Designer Paper:  Stampin' Up!
Accessories:  Martha Stewart doilie scalloped border punch, machine stitching, Brides Pearl brads, pink and purple grosgrain ribbon and stickles glitter glue.

Mo Manning also has a darling little boy riding his bike.  Just thought you might like to know.  In fact, I found a lot of "must have" stamps to play with.  :-)

I'm going to send this off to Alexis.  She enjoys getting cards from me and I surely enjoy making them for her.

Until next time,
