Moxie Fab - I Want to Ride My Bike


This is my card for Cath's Moxie Fab - I Want to Ride My Bike challenge!

I love this Hero Arts stamp! I wanted to try something new so I colored it with my Stampin' Up markers. I also wanted to try Teri Anderson's faux stitching idea and used some paint and a tracing wheel to make some faux tread under the bike!?!? :)

Well... keeping it short! Feels like forever since I have blogged! I have been making cards at night (after C goes to bed) to just unwind but I haven't done much else this week! We have been busy but I am not making a lot of progress on my never-ending to do list! Michael is on mission trip this week. They are just up the road in Nashville this time but they are still staying as a group away from home to keep the 'trip' feel. They are working on peoples homes that were damaged due to the recent flooding! They are old pro's at it since they have been going to New Orleans a couple times a year for the past several years. This time... they just decided they needed to help people in their 1st home (Nashville). The didn't go to LA but they are getting the same LA weather here this week... man... it is HOT!! HUMID and HOT!!

Okay.... said it was going to be short!

Hope you all have a fab rest of the week!

Peace and Love!

Supplies:
Stamps - Bicycle and Essential Messages (Hero Arts)
Paper - White (PTI)
Ink - Real Red (SU)
Other - SU Markers, Doodlebug jewel, Corner rounder, Making Memories paint, Tracing wheel
