I could not decide which challenge to do as I wanted to be a part of all of these 3...:0).
All I knew for sure is that I needed a card for a friend at work...this is how it all started...
I was looking through our wonderful queen for the day..Marie-Alice or..ladybug91743, and I saw this cute fun card...http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/ga...only=0...which has a cute little story to it that might make it fun for my friend. ITs her b-day, but just the other day her son (who is back at home), just bought his 2 boys...(single dad)...ages 4 and 7 motorbikes...crazy. I guess they have some switch that can make them only go so fast and they have training wheels, but my friend Cindy who looks after her grandkids on some weekends was like...when I am there without the dad all they are going to do is sit on them...they are not turning them on and she laughed...so when I saw this " safe " bike I thought she might get a little chuckle out of it.
So as I had the bike in mind I wandered over to stephanies neat inspirational site called...LEIF, which has so many neat things, I saw this bizzare Mossy jar...http://www.leifshop.com/collections/...cotta-bark-jar, a fun outdoorsy one, and It got me to thinking I could put some flowersoft on the grass to make it look mossy and instead of a white picket fence I will make it a natural woodsy type one.
Then I also missed the sweet as pie..twisted sisters last week and wanted to join them and there challenge was to get inspired with a childhood memory and tell a bit of a story, which was easy peasy as also when I saw the bike card it reminded me of lots of fun times I had growing up on the farm going on bike rides.
Like visitng neighbors, or my grandmas in town...boy did I get in trouble for that one...lol...I was only liek about 5 and I really wanted to go visit my gramma and it was starting to storm and mom and dad sad not tonight maybe another time. Well...I am a wee bit stubborn at times...lol...so I decided no I want to see her now and took my little bike and started off on my own...like 2 miles away...dad came after me with the truck and put the bike in that back ...needless to say I did get to see her another day...:0)
or have any of you saw a beautiful rainbow and thought...maybe...just maybe if I bike fast enough I can catch the bottom...lol...never did find that pot of gold yet...but...you never know I have a BIGGER bike now...lol
Well this is prolbably getting a mite long so better let you go...Hope you enjoyed my little story and thanks for visiting...:0)

Wendy, I DID enjoy your story and had some chuckles along the way! What a darling CASE of Marie-Alice's card and flower soft inspiration for 2 challenges. Love the blue sparkly bike! Your friend will get a kick out of your card.

What a precious scene! I have been asking for a bicycle like that for my birthday. My dh told me to just go rent one because one time would be all I would ride and then in the garage it would go with all of my other wild thoughts!

Wendy, nothing better than a beautiful card with a great story! Love them both. I just sat here reading and picturing it all in my mind over a cup of coffee. Brought back memories of my younger days. For that I thank you. Your friend is going to love this. It makes you feel so relaxed and loved. WOW! TFS :0)
