Out for a Spin

Happy Monday! I hope you had a nice weekend. Thanks for all the gall bladder feedback. I don't know anything yet, the tests will come back this week. I find it interesting that some people said that after having surgery they had to watch what they ate and others said now they can eat whatever they wanted. Hmmm. No new attacks though.

Remember I told you I went on a little Our Craft Lounge spree? Here is another card I made, this time using an adorable set called Out for a Spin. It has so many cute elements! The basket reminds me of my friend, Sheryl, who has a one on the front of her bike. Totally fun!

I picked some Cosmo Cricket paper as my starting point, I wanted a fun color combo and this fit the bill. I added some clear Spica glitter pen to the flowers in the basket. Everything was colored with Copics.

Speaking of bikes. My youngest son turns 12 on Wednesday and we are planning to get him a new bike since he has outgrown the one he has. Oh. My. Word. When did bikes get so expensive?? We checked out one bike shop and the bike they sized him for was over $400! I should say that one was a step up from the base model that was only $370. Sadly, he would outgrow that in a couple of years and we would be doing this all over again. All I want is a durable kids bike at a reasonable price. Needless to say, we are still looking.

Thanks for stopping by.

What a pretty card for Spring! Love it! Yes, bikes (and their accessories) are crazy expensive. I learned that when Kevin was in his young teen years. We went overboard at a local bike shop, outfitting it with all kinds of extras, then he left it outside the church where his boy scout meetings took place and it was STOLEN!! ARGH!!
Good luck with that--

Hi Tracy! I'm happy any time you think of me! And I love my basket, despite the remarks it gets...! Our local bike shop has sold us a few kid bikes at more reasonable prices - more like $250, but Target seems to have a really good selection of good brands for much less. Good luck!!
