Summer Biking

I have two posts today.  If you are looking for my {PIN}Spirational card, please scroll up................. (or check back in a bit if you are checking in very early today).  Thanks!



It is the 28th of the month, so I am here to welcome you to another round with the Calendar Girls!

Who are the Calendar Girls? We are a group of bloggers who want to have a place where friendships blossom, creativity abounds, and encouragement prevails! In keeping with that dream, this blog group has been created so we will have a place to interact and enjoy being fellow bloggers. 
April is our hostess this month and this is what she wrote for us to follow:  
 
My theme is easy I would like you each to make a card representing one thing you hope to accomplish over the summer. It could be a garden, a vacation, a weight loss, whatever, BUT you do have to tell us what you are hoping to accomplish!


I think this Riley stamps is so cute--and wanted to ink him up again.  I used two different widths of khaki ribbon for a different touch.  I also wanted to add some of the bicycle patterned paper to the inside of my card.


So--I have many things I want to accomplish every summer and this one sure is no different!  I love to play in the garden and we do plan to take a bike trip with camping again in September as we did last year with two other friends--I think that still might be considered summer.  But--one thing I know I will do more of this summer is biking in general as we just got a new tandem two weeks and I love it already!  It is such a smooth ride and it does go fast!  So--if you are in SE Wisconsin and see a couple of ladies riding a red tandem bike, give us a shout!
