I must apologize for yesterday.  It just wasn't a good day for me and I was unable to accomplish anything.  One of those stay in bed kind of days.  So because I didn't blog yesterday I have two cards for today.

First off there really is nothing new going on in my family.  School is almost over for the two older grandsons but we were able to attend both of their choir concerts so that was great.  The two youngest boys are doing well.  Baby doesn't like sleeping at night much but there is a doctor appointment for him today so maybe the doctor can provide some insight. 

Anyway on to cars.  June has a lot of events; babies, weddings, graduations, anniversaries and lots of birthdays.  My great niece, Kyla is having a birthday on Monday so I made a card from a bicycle die that I recently purchased.

 I used a red card base and mounted a white dry embossed mat on the card base.  I embossed it with a post card embossing folder from Tim Holtz.  I then cut a black waving scrap of card stock, with a Creative Memories wavy cutter (retired),  for my road.  I used this wonderful bicycle die from Memory Box running through the big shot twice and then I also ran it through with a scrap of brown for the basket.  I used the silver card stock for the bike base and then I cut out pieces of the red bike for accents.  I used two crystals for the center of the wheels, bakers twine in blue to hold up the birthday banner. I really like how this card turned out.  Great for a tween, teen or anyone that likes bicycles.

Now this second card is for my younger sister, Bobbie, whose birthday in June 4.  Need I say that my sister enjoys going to casinos and that is usually a place that her wonderful hubby (he enjoys casinos also and also has the same birthday) takes her two on her birthday.  I used a stamp from Sparkle N Sprinkle for the image.  I die cut the image out with Stampin Up's Apothecary die then sponged the edges in a blue.  I used a plain blue mat and a white dry embossed mat which was embossed with a Darcie embossing folder.  I almost forgot that I colored the image with Stampin Up and Copic markers.  Most of my Stampin Up markers are in Florida which I am finding that I miss those water based markers a whole lot.  I guess I am going to have to transport a lot more things back and forth.

Have a wonderful weekend and see ya Monday!
