Go with all your Heart!



I have been thinking of the Make It Monday challenge from Papertrey Ink all week.  The challenge this week is to take inspiration from something you see the DT create for the New Release this month.  That is no easy task! there is always so much inspiration to be found at PTI.



My card was inspired by Erin Lincoln's Stitched Bicycle.  I wanted to insert the photo inspiration but could not figure out how to get it here.  Instead you can click HERE to see her picture.  The colors for my card were inspired by another one of my paper crafting heros : ) Betsy Veldman!!



I have bee sharing beautiful pictures of the area we live in for a while now.  Here are some pictures of something we do not have in this area! Bears.



I love bears and I really miss seeing them in this state.  There are so many things to do in the Black Hills and luckily the Bear Country USA wildlife park is one of them!!  After the drive-through part you can park and enjoy a walk-through - zoo like setting.  There is a huge play area for a dozen or more baby bears that put on quite a show!  They are fun and playful and always satisfy my "bear fix".  Some day I would like to have a seasons pass because people with these get to go in and hold and play with the babies.  A seasons pass is a little on the spendy side - but someday I will do it.



That is it for me today.  I can't wait to get over to the MIM gallery to see what each of you have created for this great challenge!

Have a great day and don't forget to mark your calendar for Darnell's upcoming Boo Boo on April fools Day challenge!  it is sure to be a hoot!  I spent some time yesterday going through some old picture files but realized my vanity rarely lets me take a picture of a boo boo! LOL There are some though definitely SOME! giggles

Hey Patti, your card is so darn sweet! Love the Peddle Pushers stampset you used to CASE Erin's stitched bicycle card :)
The bear photos are pretty awesome too

Birgit said...

OH Payyi, your bicycle card is so sweet! Who doesn't love a pretty pink bike? Thanks too, for sharing all your amazing photos. Those bears look so cute and cuddly!

Birgit said...

Haha! Sorry for your mis-spelled name. I'm tying on my little iPad mini and I guess the letters are a little too mini. 😀

Oh such a sweet card and neat design!

Love your sweet card, Patti! Great use of Erin's card & Betsy's colors! Fun seeing the baby bear pictures, too!

Lynne in NI said...

Ohhh that's such a pretty bike card, love your bear pics too!
I've a few booboo cards that I've made over the years ;)

Jeanne said...

Oh my gosh, this card is so fabulous! I adore the pink bicycle with the fun yellow basket. Those bitty hearts getting caught up in the breeze are so fun! I also really, really like the stripe of pink cutaway. The sentiment is perfect. Such a super card! Thanks for sharing it! And then the bear photos. Those are so cute, too. That first one, it looks like he/she is waving. Ha, ha! How great for you to be able to visit them. I bet it would feel amazing to hold a cub! Thanks again for sharing!

love your card- the layout, colours everything! Cute pics of the bears too.

Marybeth said...

Loving that darling Bicycle card Patti! Funny thing is I was stamping with a bicycle stamp last night but it didn't work out for my doodle card.
The bear pictures are adorable! How cute are they! When we first moved in our house about 16 years ago a cub came down from the mountain near us . It was very exciting !

Linda said...

Patti, great take on Erin's card. So very cute. Enjoy all of your wildlife pics.

Sadie said...

I love all things bicycles and your card is awesome!! Love all the pink!

Kathy Mc said...

Great card, Patti, showcasing a "girly" bike and sweet hearts floating up and away!

Jane Knudsen said...

I love the colors and the sketch! So vibrant!

Darnell J Knauss said...

Okay, first of all, thank you so much for displaying my Boo Boo Badge and putting it last to spread the word because no one would have even noticed it after seeing those adorable bear cubs! I mean, did you post a card? haha. No, really, your bicycle card for MIM in bright and happy colors is a brilliant take on Betsy's project!! Now, back to the bears, I hope you do get that pass soon! What a lifetime treat that would be!!

Thanks again, Patti! Mwah! I suspect vanity will play a part in having a low turnout this year, but I'm hoping to make it an annual event and perhaps people will catch their 'oopsies' on camera before they fix them or recycle them throughout the year and be already for me in 2017! Hugs, Darnell

Beautiful! I love that bicycle stamp, that reminds me that I need to take it out and play!

Martha said...

Patti, I love your darling card. It really caught my eye, and made me smile. I love how you used the Stitching Line die. Beautifully done!

What fun "bear" photos.

Alanna said...

What a darling card. I love the design and how those little hearts are flowing from the basket.
