*Squeal* Santa came early!!

I've been hinting for quite awhile now about the possiblity of owning a bike.  After-all we do live on a lake which boasts one of the best bike tracks on the coast.  Lord knows I really need a reason to exercise now my darling dog has gone.  So when Kev asked me to meet him at the local bike shop to check out a bike I knew, just knew there really is a Santa Claus!  Meet IVY, isn't she gorgeous!  I finally got to go for a ride today as the rain has been pelting down all week and guess what happened?  No I didn't fall off.  About a hour from home, FLAT TYRE! sigh. Just a small set back, I'll be back biking before ya know it.

A couple of quick cards

 These quickies were taken from one of my favourite time waster websites, in a nice way of course. 

I copied this card from a lady on Splitcoaststampers.  You can see the original here.

This one is a little like the one here.  The background on this one was done by loading ink onto your acrylic block, be careful not to overload it with ink like I did.

With this one I made a template cutting out a rectangle section.  I laid it over the white card stock and sponged three different colours over the white.  Keeping the template in place I stamped the flowers (?) on the bottom.  The cute little birdies where bought from TYPO for $5, bargain hey!!

Place of inspiration

 Witlof with soft cheese and Nashi pear
 Buckwheat Blini with Smoked Salmon
I did a little job for Trin last night.  She opened her shop for here VIP customers and generously offered food and champagne.  What a lovely person she is.  I only have to walk in the door of her shop to feel the waves of inspiration wash over me.
