Make a Cake

Hello stampers! Hope you all had a great weekend! Saturday was a lot of fun! I'll tell you more in a bit, but first things first, showing you another card I made for the all catalog swap. Remember, I joined 12 groups, over 200 cards made.  This card uses the "Make a Cake" stamp set along with the "Itty Bitty Banners" along with the bitty banners framelits dies. When I was first deciding on how to create this card, I used my Color Coach to figure out what colors go well with the one of the new In-Colors, Primrose Petals. The coordinating color is Pink Pirouette, along with Crumb Cake. I also used one of the sheets from the Patio Party dsp and the new fancy fan embossing folder.  I really like our paper piecer, it's so easy to use and adds a nice touch.

So this Saturday, we attended and participated in our first Tour de Fat bike event.  It was held in Tempe, at the Tempe Beach Park. This was the 7th Annual Event. We took our bikes and rode in the bike parade, which was a 3 mile ride.  Afterwards, everyone gathered at Tempe Beach Park to listen to bands, played various bike games and just enjoyed the awesome weather. Just a bit history on the logo on our shirts, the logo was called "Tico" and it was used on our public buses. It was a bright smiling sun with a sombero. Our t-shirts were a vintage throw-back to different times in Phoenix. If you're from Phoenix and took public transportation, do you remember Tico? Overall, it was a great event and we're already looking forward to next year.

So this week I'll be showing you more card swaps.  I also be participating in a couple of blog challenges. Thanks for stopping by.
