Summer riding and Christmas in July!
These are two total contradictions, opposites and some of my favorite things! I love to bike ride. When I was living in Ohio, I used to ride quite often. They just opened up a new bike path and there was an entrance right at the end of my Mom's road, just half a block away! I'd ride up a couple of miles and then back every morning. My legs never looked so good! But they never looked as good and long as Miss I-Wish-I-Looked-So-Good-on-a-Bike-abella! She's one of my newest babies and I adore her! I colored her with my Tombow markers and her paper is from DCWV's Summer mat stack. I had to use my cuttlebug with her. She just makes me happy!
I did the Christmas Shopper for our challenge Deb put out on the StampCrazyColorBox yahoo group for over the weekend. Deb and Ami, I made her just for you! Isn't she fabulous? And I so love to Christmas shop! I adore her retro look and she just reminds me of a better, simpler time. She's made by a fabulous local stamping company called smARTworks. They have wonderful designs and it's hard to pick just one or two of them. Stop by and take a look at them sometime. I colored her with my Prismacolor pencils and OMS, her paper is from Joann's open stock and so is the leather tie. I adore her!
So when you're really hot from riding that bike, be it outdoors or a stationary bike inside, try and cool down by thinking about your Christmas shopping!
