You must keep moving!

I LOVE this Stamping Bella stamp, but due to it's size I must admit that my first attempt at using it on a card was somewhat less than satisfactory. I am inclined not to share attempt number one, but here goes...

It was so fun and easy to paper-piece the little heart for added detail though.

I would like to share over at Cute Card Thursdays where the current challenge is "Here comes summer!"

My card is also for the current 100 th challenge celebration at The Paper Players - to choose a past challenge of your chose - my card is for #98 - Summertime. Please scroll down to my Tim Horton's card post to see more details about this fun celebration challenge!

Hooray, the weekend is almost upon us!

papers: MME - On the sunny side*
stamp: Stamping Bella - Life is like riding a bicycle quote*
ribbon: Bo Bunny
buttons: misc.
bazzill CS
* available at DAT'S your LSS for Thunder Bay and area

  4. well i have to say i ♥LOVE♥ the stamp, and i love BOTH of your cards! the upper one is soooooo pretty and it makes the stamp the CENTERPIECE (both literally & figuratively!) on the other hand i looooooooooove the bicycle paper on the lower one, and the little skinny black mats so totally POP, and the stitching is very cool!
