Gina K Design Illustrators/Design Team Blog Hop!

Howdy and welcome to the Blog Hop for this month! Gina's Challenge to us this time was to use a Summer memory of ours to inspire our creation....wellll, I decided to go with the bike image from the STV Kit, Enjoy the Sunshine. Here is my card:




Edited to add: Cath has a bicycle challenge on her blog, so entering this for that too! Here is the link to the challenge:I want to ride my bicycle!

Do you notice the bike is flying down a hill? One of the best things about summer to me was me and my brother, that is 2 and half years older than me, going bike riding just all over the place! We had this one hill that I was terrified to go down!! But my brother would just zip right down it like it was nothing...sooo I finally get up the nerve to go down it...guess what...yep, WIPED OUT, LOL! My hands, knees, and elbows all scratched up, but I did survive! (my brother got a spanking because I told my Mama it was HIS fault..I know, bad me!) AND I did it again after the wounds healed and MADE IT! yay me! haha! But it is a very fond memory even with the wipe-out! Ok, enough of my blabber...onto more gorgeous eye candy! And dont forget to hope to Gina's blog if you havent, cause she will explain all about how you can become next months CSS DT!!
