And the moral of the story is...

.


.. LIFE.....


IS LIKE RIDING A BICYCLE....





YOU DON'T FALL OFF .....




UNLESS YOU STOP PEDALING.
(pedalling spelt the American way 'pedaling' as it was an American Quote)



This week, Crazy 4 Challenges are being sponsored by Stampotique. The theme is Green (presumingly as today is St Patrick's Day). I made this card using Old Timey Frog and Swirl Stalks , both from Stampotique in a kind of storybook/poem illustration style, as it tells a tale of little frog having to keep on keeping on no matter what life throws at you.
I sketched the little tree in the background to create a some depth. The green elements were created with paints, sprays, ink, pen, free style embossing powder and pencils.

You can see the other Stampotique DT contributions to this challenge on the Stampotique Designers Blog.

I would also like to enter this card into the latest Crazy Amigo Challenge which is Bike.

Wishing you all a good weekend.

ps...the two Wednesday workshops I'm running are now completely sold out but I do still have a few places left on the Sunday sessions for March and April. Please check my workshop blog here for more details.
