Come Home Soon

 Hello Crafty Friends,
So glad you stopped by again. I am setting a goal to craft everyday for one hour and do less school work while I am at home. Wish me luck!
There is a new challenge at Exploring Cricut today.
The Challenge:  Transportation 
Here is my Exploring Cricut project...
I think this old fashion bicycle is neat looking, but I am not sure how comfortable it was. It looks like you need a ladder to get on the seat.
I sure do miss my son when he is away at college and this sentiment is meant for him, but I surely do not want him to ride his bike home. It is a 2 hour car ride, so I can't imagine how long it would take on a bike (especially one like this).
I used the Tuesday Morning Sketch (challenge is already closed).
Glitz Design paper ~ Happy Travels Stripes and World
My Mind's Eye teal paper
white card stock
Heritage Cricut cartridge ~ bike1 (p. 49) cut at 2"
Desitnations Cricut cartridge ~ ovals cut at 2 1/2 - 2 1/4"
brown ribbon
brown buttons
teal gems
Spellbinders ~ Beaded Ovals
My Pink Stamper ~ Itty Bitty-licious stamp
brown ink
Hope you will join the Exploring Cricut challenge this week.
Stay Creative,

  4. Georgiana ~ very PRETTY card but yet has the masculine touch! LOVE the bike! I need to this bike in the book ~ I LIKE it! Thank goodness I have this cartridge! Well I wouldn't want to see your son bike from college either! Yikes! I think it is a PERFECT card for him! The sentiment says it all! I dread the day mine is off to college! Too sad!

  5. What a sweet card Georgiana. I love that you send cards to your son while he's away. It's SO hard when they go off to college. I think I cried every day for a week when my daughter moved into the dorms years ago. And she was only an hour away!

  6. Know how you feel my youngest is all set to move out into her own apt. Will be about 45 minutes away. I will have a empty nest maybe I will need this bike. Really great card love the colors and the wonderful vintage image. Karen
