Tilda Riding Her Scooter

I've told my husband for years that I want a "Barbie" scooter. One day while we were walking our beagles, we ran across a yard sale and what do you think was being sold....a scooter. It wasn't in very good condition, and it wasn't the color I'd like it to be, but I still had a hard time walking by it. I keep threatening to go on a vacation where scooters would be the viable mode of transportation and I don't think he believes that I'd really do it! One of these days he's going to be surprised because I'm NOT passing up the next scooter I see at a yard sale.

Here's Tilda having a grand time riding my scooter..I mean, her scooter. I had a fun time making this card and using a new Martha Stewart ladybug punch I just got, and I even had ladybug paper and a brad!  The swirl in the corner is from Wild Orchid Crafts.

Thanks for looking at this card and please leave a comment so I can visit your blog, too!

    Hey, I know where you can go for vacation and be able to ride a scooter: in Sorrento, Italia.. they have scooters everywhere. You would have so much fun in there!!

  5. Ah, yes, some things always stay in our minds, don't they . . . I can picture you tooling around in your neighborhood now on that pink scooter!! And, since it's going to be PINK, you won't be in any danger that someone (named Tim) might take it for a spin himself - hahahahaha !! Great card, wonderful coloring - love your pairing up the scooter image with ladybugs - adorable.

  6. Oh, Gail - I really hope you get you pink scooter soon, and when you do be sure to post lots of photos of you riding it! This is such a fun card with it's cute Tilda! The ladybirds are lovely too!
