Summer vacation is finally here. As usual, with a large family we’re mostly planning on staying at the cottage or taking small day trips. That’s ok though as I have lots planned and we’ll definitely be enjoying the journey. I think beach days, splash pad visits, picnics, tubing, bonfires and bbq’s, sleeping in, lazy days, kids’ crafts, bike rides, camping in the backyard, building sand castles, play dates, sleepovers and water balloon fights sounds like a lot of fun.Whew!
I don’t often have time for too many challenges but I always find creating for fun recharges the creative “batteries”. This card was created for the Moxie Fab World I Want to Ride My Bicycle Challenge. Fun challenge! I’m not quite sure whether this card is Moxie Fab or not but as with all creative challenges, it’s having fun that counts! I just squeaked in under the wire on this one but I’m so glad I managed it today. I had so much fun I can’t wait until the next challenge!
Looking for the Zva Creative Blog hop? Keep scrolling! It’s just below this post.
Enjoy the Journey
This darling chipboard bicycle is from the Dear Lizzy collection by American Crafts. I’ve paired it up with some fun prints from Lily Bee Design. Does this design drive you dotty? Lots of dots and circle elements to have fun with.
The embellishments are pretty simple because of all the fun prints. Do you recognize the Zva Creative felt flowers? I’ve stitched them into little blossoms and placed them into the bicycle basket. I think I need to dust off my bike, check the tires and go for a spin. What do you think? Would a basket full of flowers to match this card be overkill?
Supplies: patterned paper and rub-ons by Lily Bee Design, twine, Tiny Attacher by Advantus, felt flowers by Zva Creative, pinking shears, Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink by Ranger, Dear Lizzy chipboard by American Crafts
Need a little cooling down?
I thought it would be fun to share a few photos from a 50th wedding anniversary/family reunion on the weekend. A couple of my boys and their cousins managed to get into the splash pad fully clothed WITH shoes BEFORE family pictures. They had a blast! lol I’m wondering what the official photos look like though!
So. What do you have planned for your summer?
Hope it’s a blast!
