A Bluish Bicycle


It's so easy to combine For the Love of Grids from this month's release at Practicing Creativity Design with any of your existing stamps because of its versatility and ease of use, or to let it stand alone. I used the vintage cycle from The Whole Cycle and a doily to correspond with the old style patterned background, stylized from For the Love of Grids for this first card.


Please see for yourself the wonders of this set by stopping by each of the design team member's blogs - Dana - Courtney - Valerie - where we all feature For the Love of Grids and another fabulous stamp set. Get ready for it, its being released at midnight!
