A bike riding kind of day...

& boy is it ever! It's sunny & beautiful out today. I'm going to make my husband get the kids bikes out of our back shed, where we stored them for the winter....& get them in tip top riding shape!

To celebrate spring, I inked up one of my new High Hopes stamps I recently received:




She's not NEW, but she's new to me. Another that was on my wish list for quite a while & I finally ordered her. This is Lizabeth Biking Angel....& I was brave & colored her with my Copics! I also used my NEW Nesties that I just receieved. Nope, I didn't break my promise to watch my pennies.....I had actually ordered these back in January. That's how long they were backordered!! I'm happy I finally got them, but of course now I want all the new ones out there!! The blue & orange papers are Bazzill Bling.....& the designer paper is MM's Chloe's Closet. I love this stuff & last time I went to Michael's I couldn't find it anymore. Not only could I not find the paper, but all the matching brads & flowers were on clearance....THAT'S not a good sign :( Anyway, I used my wavy punch, an orange swirl clip with some ribbon, & some Primas & a buttons finish it off. I used Stickles on the flowers & Dazzling Diamonds glitter on her wings.




The inside looks the same as the outside!! I love doing that, lol!




I hope you have a splendid Saturday, no matter what you are doing. We need to dye our Easter eggs.....I bought some "camouflage" dye at Walmart. I'll have to take a picture when we're done!! We also have some outside stuff to do....& the usual laundry...& some school stuff that we waited all week to do...lol...

Oh, & our mattress trip was unsuccessful. I didn't realize it would be so hard to pick a mattress for a 10 year old!! The ONLY one he liked was the Tempurpedic.....for $400!!!! For a TWIN!!! The last store we were at had a Tempurpedic TOPPER....now that would work....but they only had a queen size & I didn't think to ask if they could order a twin. So I've been looking online.....& a local mom's forum I belong to had some suggestions of some stores around here I could check out. You know what our shopping trip DID do?? Depress me!! When we went to American (a furniture & appliance store....I think it's only in Wisconsin)....they had done some remodeling & had some FANTASTIC kitchens....even my kids were drooling over the stainless steel appliances & cool gadgets. I found a couch that we can't afford, a big screen tv we can't afford, & heck, even a filing cabinet that I've been looking for that I can't afford!!! ***sigh*** I'd better go plant some more money trees!!!

I'll see you back here tomorrow for my High Hopes challenge card!! Have a great day!!

Your card is so adorable!! Beautiful coloring, as always!! It is not sunny and warm here unfortunately. Your image makes me yearn for a nice spring day. It is rainy and COLD.

Happy Easter!!!

I think we both got the same stamps with our last order!! LOL I got most of the angels (and it looks like you did, too)! I love this card. Ansley has been working on learning to ride a bike without training wheels so I need to scrapbook her first attempt!
Glad it's warming up a little for you!
