July Blast From the Past Blog Hop!

Today I'm playing along with the Taylored Expressions customer blog hop, aka the Blast from the Past Blog Hop! The theme this month is "Sending You Sunshine," so I decided to make a sunny, happy card featuring the thing that makes *ME* happiest in July - a bicycle!


The bike and sentiment are from one of my favorite TE sets, In the Park. The layout was inspired by Taylor's Sketch Challenge #142.


For a bit of extra fun, I added some glitter pen to the seat and handlebars, and glaze pen to the tires!





So are you wondering why bicycles make me especially happy in July? If you know me at all, you know I'm a bit of a Tour de France fanatic. I've had to miss the majority of the first two weeks of racing this year due to our move. This is the final week of le Tour, and I am savoring it. :-)

Thanks for stopping by!

  • Paper: SU Cool Carribean, My Mind's Eye Stella Rose
  • Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Copic Markers, Black Glaze Pen, Copic Spica Pen
  • Accessories: The Twinery twine
