Congrats on Your Bike-A-Thon!

Happy weekend everyone! Kids are excited, it's a long weekend, no school on Monday for Columbus Day. Tonight we have my husband's high school reunion. I still don't know what I'm going to wear. Nothing like waiting til the last minute, right?

This is my take on the Mercy's Tuesday sketch challenge this week (MTSC42). I've been trying to do this challenge each week, since I found out about them about a month ago. They are really fun sketches!

I made this card for my dear friend Megan, who just completed a bike ride to raise money for MS, called Bike to the Bay. She rode 17 miles, holy moly! I'm so proud of her for finishing the bike ride, that's pretty long of a ride, in my opinion. She trained for some time to get ready. Megan, if you are reading this, pretend to be surprised when this arrives in your mailbox, LOL!

I told my husband that I was making a card for her to celebrate this accomplishment. He said, "Do you really have a girl on a bike stamp?" Um, yeah, and I probably have stamps to celebrate almost any occasion anyone could happen upon! A little scary, but it's always better to be prepared!

Card Recipe:
Stamps: Stampingbella, I wish I looked so good on a bikeabella, PTI sentiment
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Garden Green
Paper: Garden Green, Pixie Pink, PTI ssw, Basic Grey Sultry
Embellishments: copics, spica glitter pens, sakura silver gel pen, Bella's Baubles, scalloped punch, nesties,
