Wow! We survived 91˚ weather to watch our 5 yr. old grandson’s baseball game last night! These Summer temps always bring to mind my growing up days and going to the Henry Doorly Zoo in Omaha every Summer. Seems like the family always picked the hottest day of the year to go! lol
This card brings up all those Zoo days. Nowadays I prefer the Des Moines zoo. You can get through it in an hour or so!
This cute little swinger is in the new TE Wild About You stamp set. Color with Copics and stamp a sentiment and you’ve got a quick card. There is a coordinating die set for it also.
The other thing I did growing up in Council Bluffs/Omaha with lots of sidewalks is bike riding! Sometimes I wonder when we stopped playing and ate lunch and supper! lol
I cut the bike in silver paper, colored it with a permanent black pen and layered it on a couple other cuts before I glued it to the scene.
I love the new On The Line die set… the squirrel is from the new On The Line Accessories set. So cute! The leaves on the tree are supposed to cut when you run it through but instead of cutting them for this card, I embossed them with the die. 😀 I inked the die with Peeled Paint Distress ink, placed the tree top cut back in the die and ran it through with a tan mat.
To get the hill… I used the clothesline part of the tie. I die cut the line in dark brown and in green. I used the waste from the green cut and placed the brown line on top of it. I thought it made an awesome sidewalk!
The ‘thanks’ die cut is one that you get when you order from Taylored Expressions. Every time you order you receive a complementary die, thanking you for ordering! Isn’t that awesome?! I think so! I love getting something that I love free! : ) The free die varies every time, you don’t know what you’ll get.
Thanks for stopping by today! Holler if you have any questions. Links to the products I used from the TE store below…
