I used my Labels Eight Nestabilities dies to cut a white card. I stamped the Hero Arts Bicycle using Grass chalk ink, and added little buttons from my stash to the wheels. I glued American Crafts ribbon to a strip of light blue card stock and used a Martha Stewart "Doily Lace" border punch on the edge; I attached this under the bicycle image. Finally, I added faux stitches around the card using pastel blue and green colored pencils. Here is how it turned out:
I have had these little buttons for years...I bought them at my local craft store and only have pink and blue left. They are so tiny and cute!
So, that's it for today.
Side bar...we hit 103 degrees yesterday and today with high humidity and a heat index of 110! So what did we do today? Two of my kids had plans (one had a day trip to the beach and another went to a baseball game), so the other two decided they wanted to go get their school supplies for the fall.
So that is what we did...off to Target and Staples, and they had all their school supplies out and on sale. Uugh! I'm not ready to wrap my mind around SCHOOL quite yet...but both stores were well air conditioned, so THAT was good. Actually, I was glad we put a dent in our list for September because we have a trip planned in late August and won't be here to shop.
Funny observation: My daughter shopped for folders as if they were accessories...she agonized over which patterns and colors to get, then quizzed me for an hour when we got home to see which one was my favorite. My son picked his folders within seconds. "These are good." Done. (And no follow-up quiz, either.) Funny, how different girls and boys can be.
Have a great night...stay cool!
P.S.: Congratulations to Cadel Evans, winner of the Tour de France! It all wraps up tomorrow...LOVE watching and hate to see it end!
