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?

Ahhh, so you're the brains behind the wheels, lol! Love this set Tracy and this card is fab, the generation stamping is great for suggesting movement. And yes, I do believe that's a Penny Farthing :o)
