Okay, so today is my birthday, and I was afraid that I would feel OLD. I moped and sniffled a bit, but then I realized that I'm in the middle of the best years of my life. I have a terrific hubby, a beautiful, exceptional little boy, and friends and family who love me. So, instead of being depressed, I decided to have a little fun.
Moxie Fab World is hosting a challenge: I Want to Ride My Bicycle. I remember the day the training wheels came off my first bike (oh so many years ago!) I wanted to recapture the feeling of that time in my card. First, I die cut this lovely bike and silhouette from two different shades of purple and popped it out over some gorgeously orange and floral designer paper. I then printed out my sentiment in an appropriately named font, "BellBottom," and cut out a waving banner. Once I assembled all the elements on the card base, I rounded the corners and added some rhinestones (what girl doesn't need a little bling on her birthday?) By the time I was done I was feeling at peace, so in love, and more than a little groovy!
By the way, today is the second day of voting in the Gallery Idol 2010 contest!
