Hi Everyone,

Today we are peeking creations from the new stamp set: Bikes & Trikes from Taylored expressions (concerted by Jami Sibley) and illustrated by Emily. I absolutely cannot even tell you HOW much I love this set... the hardest part is figuring out which bike image to use!!! Well - I couldn't decide -so I used two of them - I ADORE the bottom tricycle with the larger wheel - sooo whimsy cute! 

And I love this tall and skinny font (it coordinates with the Tall & Skinny Aplha dies that Taylor is also releasing this Thursday!!). I stamped the bikes and then kept the colors pretty simple - just accents of red and blue copies and then added a little ribbon and a button with some baker's twine in the middle. 

Card Ingredients:
Paper: from stash
Stamps: Bikes & Trikes from Taylored Expressions
Inks: Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories: liquid pearls, corner chomped, copics, red stickler, dimensionals, button from stash, baker's twine and glue dots. 

I have always loved biking - its just magical that very first time you get on a two wheeler and manage to figure out how in the world to stay on it without falling off! Biking makes me feel like I am flying and I am in awe of the professional cyclists whose endurance and stamina make it look so effortless! I love this sentiment that "life is a journey"... paired with the sentiment: "Wheee!" .... LOL... it made me laugh to make this card --- cause now every time things are a bit stressful at work... i just go: "wheeeee" in my head and it all feels better ;) 

It was so simple and fun to make this card - and I canNOT wait to ink up the rest of these images!!! Seriously - don't you want to eat every cute yummy bike and trike image.... i mean not literally because its a red rubber stamp and that's not good for the belly ... but still - these bike images and fonts and sentiments make me sooo happy! Can't wait to see what the rest of the design team has come up with - please check them out here:

Thanks so much for stopping by today - and please come by tomorrow for more sneak peeks!
Big hugs,
Sankari :)
