Two more moxie fab bicycles..

I guess I really DO like to ride my bicycle!  LOL!  Once I started thinking about bicycle cards I guess I just got on a ROLL!  ;)  Won't you come along for a RIDE with me and two more cards for the I Want to Ride My Bicycle Challenge in the Moxie Fab World ?  Thanks Moxie Fab for inspiring me to ride my bicycle this week!
I found this bicycle image over at the Graphics Fairy blog and was able to print it in rainbow colors.  SO happy!  I love rainbow colors!  Why have one favorite color when you can all of them!  I scored with some multi colored crochet thread deep in my yarn drawer too!  The sweet sentiment is one of my faves from the Star Prints set from Papertrey Ink plus buttons out of my stash!

And one more card for consideration...a truly clean and simple style which I generally struggle with but this card told me, it truly whispered in my ear, "leave me alone, don't add anything"  I of course listened and then had to add the teeniest tiniest bit of rainbow bling to the centers of the wheels just cuz...I'm a poor listener I guess but I couldn't resist!
OK, don't you agree, just this once, it was ok not to listen?  LOL!  That bit o bling just puts a little "me" stamp on it I think. 
And the quote...from a man who knows cycling and life's challenges...Lance Armstrong has shared this astute quote with the world at some point in his career, and Lance, I hear ya buddy!  I am frequently in "paralysis by analysis" by overthinking and not just enjoying the moment. (see first card for more life advice penned for me!)  So wherever you are and whatever you are doing, I hope you are making things happen instead of only worrying about falling off the bike....if you or I do fall off, there is always that tried and true "dust yourself off and try try again"!  And THAT, my friends, is the end of my public service announcement for the day!  ;)

Thanks evermore for stopping by my little spot in the blogosphere!  It's nice to see you here!

Thank YOU for you PSA!! I hear ya! :>

At first, my jaw dropped at the fun loving thread wrapped around your sentiment block....so fun, free, and whimsical!

And then, THEN, I scrolled down and my eyeballs popped out of their sockets, propelled themselves forward and never wanted to leave.....your FABBY clean and graphic, with a bit o' shiny colorful bling card!!!!! Dana, I LOVE it!!!!!

You have made these bicycles roll!!! :>

You better believe YOUR stamp is on these images. Thinking back, historically, on your delicious designs - some of my MOST fave Dana G DESIGNS had rainbow elements... AND GLITTER.... AND BLING! And, oh forget it! Everything you do looks "Dana-ish" and that's a GOOD thing. Now, I'll be humming "Queen" all day.

Bicycle! Bicycle! Bicycle... BIKE!

{Great QUOTE, btw! I'm going to try to work with THAT for a while! hee hee}
