~Stop by and say Hi at The Cutting Cafe~

Good Morning and Happy Saturday!! I hope everyone's weekend is off to a great start!!! It's supposed to get chilly here, but we'll see. Think I'll run out to some yard sales and see if anyones getting rid of some treasures...some crafty treasures!! Before I do that, I wanted to share this really cute bike set called Let's Go For A Ride that Regina released over at The Cutting Cafe! I think it's just the cutest! She's got so many different bikes, scenes and sentiments in this set. You're surely to find what ya need to come up with your own little bike card.
I chose this little scene and bike to send to my nephew and his wife. They're such sweethearts and two of my very best friends. I love and miss them so much, and I wish I could hop on a bike right now and ride over and see them. Unfortunately I'm in AZ and they're in GA, so it would be quite the ride, but if I thought I could make it, I'd be on my way. So hopefully they'll enjoy this little card when it stops by!
Anyways, back to my card. I took the images and manipulated them a bit in my Paintshop Pro program, and added in the sentiment over the sign that's already there, and finished it off into a bigger sign. I also took a cotton ball and put it on the clouds, thought it would give it some texture and just a fun addition. It kind of reminds me of the Pee Wee Herman bike haha
Well I hope this little card inspires you to make something fun today and let someone that you may not get to see as much as you'd like, know you're thinking of them!
