Lots of Challenges!

Happy Friday Friends! We've hit triple digits on the thermometer here in New England!! I hope that you are staying cool! For today's card, I've combined a few of my favorite challenges. This week's Blogger's Challenge theme is summertime. We love to go bicycling as a family in the summer, so I knew that this new TCP set (Wheel Love) would be perfect for this challenge. Of course, it's not our favorite thing to do when it's 103 degrees outside...lol! You can find all of the details to play along with the Blogger's Challenge over on Lisa's blog. The sketch for this one is from Karen Giron's Sweet Sunday Sketch. You can find the sketch and all of the details to play along on Karen's blog. To color up this sweet bicycling bunny, I used Copic Markers (C1, C3, E40, R22, R24, YG13, YG17, YR15, YR16, and the Colorless Blender) to match the colors for this week's TCP Tuesday Challenge. This week's colors are Watermelon Red, Pumpkin Orange, and Grass Green. If you'd like to join this challenge, just head over to Alma's blog. The patterned papers are from My Mind's Eye and the buttons are from Papertrey Ink. I also used the Cloud Border CutUps from TCP and the Fresh Cut Grass Die-namics and the Open Scallop Edge Die-namics from MFT. I added a little bit of machine sewing to finish this off. We are off to a friend's house to go swimming! Hope that you find a way to beat the heat too! Thanks so much for visiting with me...Toodles! :D
