Keep Movin'!

I have been on the CHF Design Team for six months now. It is such a delight to be a part of some of the behind the scenes things. Liz and Richard work so hard to bring you quality stamps and supplies. Back in November I sent Liz an email with an idea for a stamp set. I really wanted a vintage bicycle set, I sent some photos and sentiments for ideas. She did her magic and Bicycle Life was born. I thought release day would never get here, lol.



Here is my first card using the set, this antique bike is my favorite! I believe Joanne (our design team member from England) called it a Penny Farthing. Cool!


It pairs really well with the Newspaper Ads Scrapblock. Just a bit of generational stamping here, ink the stamp once but stamp it 3-4 times, moving it slightly each time. Such an easy way to depict movement! This card makes me happy!

The set is in the store TODAY. What do you think?
