Bikes are Moxie Fab!

One of the many blogs I follow is Moxie Fab World, which is a great source of inspiration for crafters and cardmakers like me! One of the most recent inspiration challenges is to create a project that includes a bicycle in an innovative way, or the "I Want to Ride My Bicycle Challenge." Click HERE to play along! (The deadline is midnight on Monday, June 28.)

Many of my favorite childhood summertime memories involve riding my bike in our neighborhood. My orange Sundance bike racked up a lot of miles going to friends' houses, across the bayou bridge to get an ice cream or slush at Sonic, or to load up on candy at the nearby drugstore. I miss those days of freedom, just getting on my bike and riding...without a helmet!

The card I made for the "I Want to Ride My Bicycle Challenge" uses the only bike stamp that I have. It's from Crafty Secrets' Favorite Fellas set.




I stamped the background bikes in Rich Razzleberry, and I used foam squares to pop up one of the bikes that I stamped in Chocolate Chip ink. The card base is Bo Bunny Double Dot, and the patterned papers are from My Mind's Eye. I used glitter Thickers and Cosmo Cricket Tiny Type for the sentiment.

Thanks for looking!
