a card and a bike

Here is another card I made this weekend for the mini VSN (virtual stamp night), this card was for Carolina's challenge to make a card about one of your favorite drinks.  I pulled out my Summer on the Patio set (same one that has the chandelier from yesterday) and stamped the larger wine bottle and glass, then colored it in with Copic markers.  The white panel was cut and embossed using the Spellbinders label 1 die.  Again because each challenge has you make the card in under 45 minutes, its a clean and simple layout, it goes to show you can have make a beautiful card, very simply, kind of the less is more philosophy.
"Hello Friend"

In other news, I got a new bike!  Woot!  Woot!  Well, Jess, and the kids got bikes as well.  Where we live is in a newer subdivision, its a planned community, so the sidewalks are really really wide!  Jess and I rode our bikes to the store the other day and we rode side by side with tons of room left.  Since I live in Florida, it was only fitting that I got a Beach Cruiser.  I love it, its a Schwinn and I went and bought a metal basket that goes on the front of the bike.  Because I'm able to remove the basket (i just lift the handle) I think I need to go find some really cute fabric, and make a liner.  How sweet would it be to have a liner made from Amy Butler or Cosmo Cricket fabric!!  Oh my heck am I excited!  I will have to have Jess take a picture of me on my bike, but until then, below is what my bike and basket look like.

Well, this looks like a hoot to traipse around town in Latisha! I love bike riding! One of my favourite past-times of spring summer and fall.
