Lovin this Bike or am I Desperate for Spring?

Here is another card made with that adorable little bike! I also used the new printed paper again (just a different design). I really love this color combo because it screams "summer!" I must be desperate for winter to end. I have never disliked winter as much as I do now that I have kids! Sure, I love it for the holiday season, but I hate having my kids cooped up in the house so much. They go out and play some, but what a chore getting them ready to go out! Thankfully the 8 and 5 year old can do it themselves, but the 3 year old still needs help. And, it seems mom is the one checking to be sure that all the clothes get in the bathtub and hung up to dry (oooh, how I wish we had a mud room).
I heat embossed the background on the Bashful Blue panel with the Polka Dot background stamp. I've done this on several cards recently, I just really like the extra touch it gives a project. I used my Stampin Write Markers to color the image in and then used my Crop-o-dile to set those Real Red eyelets. I hope you have a great day and get to stamp some!
Supplies Used: Bashful Blue cs, SW Marker, Real Red cs, SW Marker, So Saffron SW Marker, Going Grey SW Marker, Versa Mark ink, Clear Embossing Powder, Whisper White cs, Real Red eyelets, Summer Picnic DSP, Time for You stamp set.

I love all of the projects you have posted. And I like the little touch of the embossed background too. I'm looking forward to getting my swaps in the next day or two!

So pretty and bright! It has been a long winter and these images are so refreshing. Can't wait to see the rest of the set. Love the embossed background.

I tried posting earlier, but I got an error. I love this card and it is even cuter in person. Thanks!
