My Bicycle

Today I decided to use a stamp that I have not inked up too often, the Hero Arts wood mounted Bicycle stamp.

Paper: Paper Studio (notecard); Neenah Solar White; My Mind's Eye (Hazel Paper 6 X 6 pad)
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black; Pumice Stone DI; Copic Marker
Stamps: Hero Arts (CG196; F5293; CL402)
Other: Flower Gem (Hero Arts); Stampin Up Scalloped Edge punch

I paired the bicycle with the Canvas Stripe cling set using Pumice Stone distress ink and added a little bit of patterned paper.

That's it for now!  Today marks the beginning of a long summer holiday for my daughter although she will be participating in a few summer camp events and we get to go to the beach for a week in August to finish it off!  But most importantly, my mother, sister and niece arrive for a two week visit later this month!!!  I cannot wait!  It's been just over a year since I last saw my sister and niece, I can barely wait!

Wishing you an awesome and funfilled day!

Hi Brenda,

There is something so brilliant about these papers you have used... just love the colour combo and the distressed effect.

Have a pleasant summer vacation with your daughter and have a lovely time with your extended family!

How nice for you to have a family visit, I bet you are excited. So nice for your daughter too!
So happy for you also to have some nice weather, although I expect it will be very humid.
I really love the stripes and dots with your bicycle, lovely card!
