Happy Friday!!

Hello All!
After all of yesterday's rain storms, this morning is filled with
sunshine and fresh air!  I feel so blessed!!

I'm still working on some cards for the Amish gift sets I've been
commissioned to create but before I share my card, and
for those who do not follow me on FB ... check out what ran across
our line of vision this morning while we were enjoying our morning coffee
and watching the squirrels play outside our sliding glass door to the back yard.

Yep, the squirrels scampered quickly up a tree and from the right side of our deck this pretty mama came running over into our sideyard.  She stood there for quite awhile looking around as if deciding the best route to take.  Then made her decision and ran to her left across our neighbors backyard (probably had their dog Max barking his head off inside their house lol).  What a great way to start the morning!!!

Now back to my card share . . .

I recently purchased this Impression Obsession BIKE and thought
it would make a perfect note card for the set.
Impression Obsession - Dies - Bike 
I've die cut it from silver foil card stock the cut the
wheels again from black card stock and removed the 'spokes'
before gluing the 'tires' to the wheels.

My landscape was created by die cutting various
shades of green card stock using the Impression Obsession 
Hill Landscape Layers die and then the front grassy panel
is a Cottage Cutz 'grass' die.

The sun up in the sky is from the Impression Obsession 
Sun & Moon die set

Impression Obsession - Dies - Sun & Moon
and the flowers in the basket are from Prima.
A touch of Nuvo Yellow Crystal drops were used for the flower centers.

I do hope your day is off to as good a start as mine has been.
Wishing you a fabulous weekend ahead!

As always, thanks SO MUCH for taking the time to stop by!

  6. Love your card. We also had beautiful weather here today In Indiana. I looked out a window today and I also had a deer in our yard. She was eating the tall grass in the fence row. Glad I stopped by.

  7. So intricate die and loved how you arranged

  8. What a beautiful yard you have! Our dogs would love all that open space. So lovely to have a gentle visitor. I hope it doesn't come back with its friends and eat your flowers! Love your bicycle. I don't have a bicycle die and think I probably need one. I have to say I really adore the way you did the two shades of green for your grassy hillside. That looks awesome! What a cute summertime card!

  9. how fun to start off your day with a deer surprise, oh I can imagine if they neighbor dog saw her that barking would be the thing to do :) Always lovely to have a sunshine day after a lot of rain.
    Love your card, that bike cut from the silver is so neat and I love your background for it too, the shades on the grass is so pretty and love your flowers in the basket!
