Have a beautiful day...

My beautiful daughter-in-law celebrated her birthday at the end of July, and this is the card I made for her.

I used design #142226  from the Silhouette Design store for this card. My daughter-in-law is very committed to physical fitness, so I thought a card with a bicycle would be just the ticket--even though this bike doesn't look like one that would be used by a hardcore cyclist.

I love adding the little extras to the design like the glittery enamel dots for the wheel centers and the gems for the flower centers.

I also added some texture to the basket with an embossing folder.


In this photo you can see how the card opens up. These Silhouette designs are so great because they cut out all the individual pieces. You simply have to put it all together!

For me, choosing the papers to use is definitely the hardest part. I can spend hours doing that.

Here's one last look at my card. The small, brown panel connected to my pop-out on the right is where I signed our names.

I will have some photos of our trip to share with you later this week (hopefully). We are still trying to get caught up with everything after being gone for 2 1/2 weeks. I washed clothes last night, mowed the lawn today, need to visit the Department of Motor Vehicles tomorrow to renew some registration tabs. I still have a lot of cleaning to do in the RV before we can tuck it away for the winter. There just aren't enough hours in the day!

Thanks so much for stopping by, and remember to laugh--a little or a lot--every day.
