The first thing out of my mouth when I was sent my design team duties for this month and I spotted this sketch was "Yah! Banners, I love this sketch"! Look below at the wonderful sketch for this week at Create with Connie & Mary:

How cute is this?

The "Moving Forward Stamp Set" has some fun and whimsical images for you to play with. I thought I would fill the little basket on the tricycle with a flower and add a few on the ground and across the banner. I even added pearls to the centers of the flowers and also to the centers of the wheels!

Chevrons...all the rage right now. I think it's hilarious that all of the patterns from the 60's and 70's are making a return. They say there is a 20 year cycle in the fashion industry. I even spotted some polyester in a catalog the other day...oh my.
