Made It a Double

     Have you ever picked up a stamp set for a friend, so that you can drop it by her house as a favor? Well I picked this Stampendous gem up for a friend, but I couldn't resist stamping it a couple of times, before I delivered it to her house. I may have failed to mention to her that I did this and I know she reads this, so she is surely going to know now. Better to beg forgiveness, than to ask permission and be turned down ... right???

     This card is designed using a sketch by Lisa Hidy. When I decided to use this image for this sketch, I really didn't realize that it would take up so much room on the card. As it turns out, all ended well. 

Card Sketch #156 by Lisa Hidy

     I used Copics to color. This paper is from Doodlebug. I got it at Tuesday Morning in a pack that said "Home Assortment". After working with this paper I am wondering if it would be considered "seconds". The paper wasn't cut properly on the edges and I'm not even sure that all of the papers in the collection go together. It doesn't really matter as I got it for a good price and had fun working with it.

     I chose the row of houses for the band. I think it makes it look like he is pedaling down the street. 

     For the inside of the card, I added a Burniston double dip cone to match the one of the front of the card.
