Calendar Girls

Here is my card for the May Calendar Girls.  April was our host this time and we needed to come up with a card with something we hoped to accomplish over the summer.  Well after a lot of thought, I decided to go with biking.  I've been working on losing some extra pounds and being more active.  More importantly, my two younger girls got new bikes last year and are looking forward to more family bike rides.  The new bikes have lots of different speeds and nice big wheels to make mastering the bike trails a breeze.  We've already been out a couple times this year and look forward to many more.

I used the MFT I Wheelie Like you.  My 3 year old nephew was here while I was making the card.  He thought I was making a picture of Makayla, my 9 year old.  I guess it does kind of look like her in younger years,  All the papers are Crate Paper Acorn Avenue.  I do wish she had a bike helmet on, but then the pigtails wouldn't be so cute.

Mystery Swap

Melina was our hostess this round and supplied us with this adorable little MFT mouse.  I colored her with copics and added some google eyes.

Fabulous Flowers

This is the first card I made for Barb's flower swap.  I used Crate Paper dp for the background.  Took three strips and then sewed all the seams.  The doily is SU, the paper ribbon and bow is from MFT blueprints.  The stamp is an old Great Impressions stamp of the month from a few years ago.
