I Want to Ride My Bicycle.....

Now that you have the Queen song in your head! HA!
 Over the summer I had made a few cards just for the heck of it.  It was nice to just play and experiment a bit. I had these colorful twist ties, like the ones you used to get with sandwich or garbage bags.  I hadn't used them, but loved their bright colors. 
I've also been playing around a bit with texture paste and stencils.
I stenciled the background with a Heidi Swapp star stencil and texture paste that I added a bit of silver paint to. After it was dry, I glued the twist ties to the cardstock to give my bicycle a colorful backdrop. 
I added epoxy dots to the wheels and a bit of colorful twine to the handlebars. I love its happy colors. :) 
This is my first full week back at work, and I am trying to stay organized with everything.  I feel like a juggler these days!  I've planned all of my meals for the week, did my lesson plans, and now I just need to get caught up on a few DT assignments.  Hopefully, I don't pass out in bed by 8:00!  ;) I'm planning on getting back to crafting tonight.....
Fingers crossed! 
Have a great day!

Hope you have a great school year. I retired from teaching in 2012 after 34 years. I miss my second graders and my coworkers, but I sure do enjoy having time for my crafts. Your cards are amazing!!
