Tee hee!
My son was a leaner, too! He leaned toward the 'training wheel that used to be there' - his usual pose...

He learned! He rode! He rides!!!!

Okay - that card's got my name written all over it (if you know what i mean). Thanks for the great bike update. I forgot to tell you about the tendency to lean. Keep at it. You're doing the right thing. {hugs}


Beautiful card! My daughter will be learning to ride a new bike once the weather get nicer. Oh, and once we get the bike! How old is yours?


This card is SO beautiful! If I borrow it as inspiration for a Mother's Day card, will you mind?
btw: 'cut and paste tag'?


what a gorgeous combination! I am always so surprised at the different products you put together!


GORGEOUS! Oh how I miss visiting you every day. Maybe work will slow down can only hope! LOVE your stuff girlie! HUGS!


Absolutetly beautiful!

Gorgeous! I wish I could find the beautiful Melissa Frances papers that you use. I've searched everywhere and can't find them. Your blog is my favorite eye candy. Thanks for sharing your sunshine.

Lovely Melissa!! Love the collage of papers and the sweet flower!!

Thanks for bike update! I have three that learned before they were four. I'm thinking my last may be a little older before she learns?? She will be four in June but still loves her trike.....Hmmmm, I think it will take some convincing on my part to work up her confidence!!

In response to the previous post....Ebay has a large selection of Melissa Frances papers and products!


beautiful card - how i learned to ride a bik - i put my bike next to a set of stairs - put one foot on a stair step - the other on the pedal - and pushed off from the step! and ta dum - i learned to ride without training wheels - i'm 58 and can still remember doing this!
your little cutie will learn when it's right time for her...maybe in months..


yay!!! for lesson one and no owies!! good luck today!

Beautiful card!! Isn't it great to be able to teach our children new things. Brings back many memories of when my kids were younger.

Very lovely card. I love the flower on it with the pearl in the center. Great job!!!
My youngest is a leaner too. It was awesome to see my oldest ride a bike on his own for the first time. I was brought to tears. I was so proud of him and yet sad that my little boy was growing up. I hate those moments, when you realize they are getting older.

I'm so jealous of your biking riding days. I remember my 3 learning how to ride and it is wonderful. Try to capture some of it on video. It is a joyous time.

I am looking to have made a few 8x6x2 gift boxes made. Something lovely. Do you do anything like that? If, not do you know where to direct me?

Thank you,

Sue Shanahan
