I had hoped to post yesterday alas, that little thing called "life" just keeps getting in the way! I'm still trying to catch up from weekend away whilst trying to get ready for my next get away in just over a week. I tell ya, I'm just not cut out for all this jet setting!
My mind whirling with thoughts at 5:00 am I decided to get up and take an hour of peace and quite (and coffee!) just for me! Blogging really is "me" time, and is a luxury as I get to share what I love.
This is a card I shared on the Stampin' Up! demo site and my business facebook page (Tamara's Paper Trail) some time ago. I absolutely LOVE this card. It makes me smile :)
I have to admit - when the new catalogue first came out I wasn't at all convinced I would buy the Bike Ride Bundle ...
I stumbled across Linda's card and was inspired. I knew immediately I wanted to use my brick wall embossing folder and things just went from there.
Don't be afraid to get the "complicated" sets. Get the ones you love and just ink them up and stamp. If you need inspiration just type the stamp set name plus Stampin' Up! then search through the hundreds of images and go from there!
Here is the card again ...
