Life is a Journey

Thursday, July 28, 2016

 
  When I was a young girl, the best part of summer was taking out my bicycle and riding around the neighborhood for hours (some of you remember what it was like...you left the house in the morning and got home by dinner time...no phones, your parents didn't worry about you, it was just you and your friends playing on a beautiful warm sunny day.  Freedom!)
 

 My card was created using Papertrey Ink's Pedal Pusher stamps/dies. (I'm a big fan of PTI!!)  The brads are from my stash of Stampin Up accessories and the white background is embossed with a Taylored Expression folder.

Thanks to these challenges for the inspiration!
