Life is a beautiful ride!!

 As soon as I saw the new "Pedal Pushers" stamp set from PTI, I knew that it was an absolute "must have"!  My daughter got a shirt for Easter with a bike on the front with a basket of flowers and how I wished I had a stamp just like it! Now I do, thanks to PTI! I swear Nichole reads my mind! LOL! Anyway, I haven't been able to put this set down since I have gotten it. I have made a PTA door prize, 3 thank you cards for friends, a teacher thank-you and these two cards. Yes...I am obsessed. I will share everything I made, too. Just give me time.
 Of course, I had to get the coordinating dies, which I love because there are two different ones for the bike. You can have one that the wheels spin, pictured here, or you can just have it stationary.  I love all of the different "fillers" for the basket as well. I used the flowers here, but you can see I used the presents in the last photo. I mentioned that while making this card set for my friend I was making two of every design. Some have the exact same sentiment, like the 2 I have posted previously, but these two cards, I changed it up. I found that I could make a more versatile set for my friend, while getting the cards done quickly.

I found this scrumptious paper from Pebbles at my LSS and fell in love. I want to use it on everything, but that would get boring, wouldn't it?  It is super cute, though. I love the mix of prints and colors...perfect!!! I especially love the polka-dot clouds that I die-cut. I added some white ink to the edges to define them a bit better and then added stickles to every other polka dot for some added interest. You can't really tell from the photos, either.

Here you can see the birthday design. The packages are so cute stacked in the basket.  I hope you all don't get bored to tears as I share the rest of my "Pedal Pushers" creations. I will space them out so they don't get too repetitive.   Thanks for fluttering by!
