Enjoy your Journey

Hello and welcome to my blog, we are starting the challenge at The Outlawz Twisted Thursday and the twist for the week is "anything goes". We would love for you to join us. The image set I used from MHK is called Wheely like you.
Our wonderful sponsor for the month of May!
The white bike is from The Paper Studio Spare Parts and you can get that at Hobby Lobby.
The papers used are from Heartfelt Creations Posy Patch collection, had some papers left over and wanted to use them up.
  On the front the dies used are from Spellbinders adoring squares and Heartfelt Creations decorative oval.
These are the copic markers used to add some color to the bike.
 
 To make the tiny flowers the punches used came from Scrappily Ever After and they have closed but I went to the site and it looks like it is still up. I love the mini punches from Punch a Bunch but the ones used are mini 8/flower, mini sunflower, mini 8/tri leaf. For the centers of the flowers added some stickles glitter color cinnamon. The papers used to punch out the flowers was all colored glitter papers.
This sentiment is from Tim Holtz's idea-ology word band and added 2 brads.
Here is a close up of the ribbon from my stash and the Heartfelt creation die with some small tan pearls from Want to Scrap.
This is how the inside turned out. Burnished the edges with distress ink color bundled sage.
Added some punched out mini bikes to the bottom the punch was from Family Treasures.
This is one of Martha Steward punches called linked Trim, you can find all kinds of her stuff at JoAnn's Store.
Used one of the sentiments that came with the image set. This also is one of the dies that came with the Spellbinders set.
Thanks so much for stopping by.

Everything is OK!

It is about time I get my card posted... First of all I do have to say we had some really bad storms come though last night so I did not get my card post but I thought I would get it done this morning but I have to tell you when I opened up the blinds and seen all the wonderful birds in my back yard I forgot about everything.. Love watching birds and if you do I have taken some pictures of some that stopped by today and spent sometime with me and I enjoyed every minute. If you are not interested in birds the end of the posting you might not be interested in, just go pass it. It is time for The Outlawz Twisted Thursday challenge and for this week the twist is to add some embossing to your card can be wet or day.
