Biker Team Time

Today we are welcoming and blog-hopping with the new 
I've done quite a bit of 'guesting'(or 'cycling' as it's called in LYBland) for 
Little Yellow Bicycle over the past couple of years, so I was thrilled to be invited to
be a part of the newest Biker Team (formerly known as Bikers Chicks).  
So many wonderful new things are in store for this company and I'm very excited to be along for the ride!

Order of Blog Hop:

And here is a sweet card that I crafted with the Just Because Collection and a few of 
the most-awesome Naturals Embellishments



 There isn't a speck of green in the Just Because papers, but I so wanted to add the
Naturals buttons with the green in them...I proceeded with stitching each in place with green
jute twine and adding a small bow to the center of the heart!  I think it worked out nicely :)
If you find adhering clear vellum or plastic pieces to your projects, try using
one of the various Xyron's sticker makers! 

*GIVEAWAY*GIVEAWAY*GIVEAWAY*
Comment through the entire hop and you'll be in the running for one of the
Little Yellow Bicycle Collections: Just Because, Fern & Forrest Boy or Girl

**Your next stop is the amazing, Audrey Pettit's Blog**
Enjoy the hop, meeting the new folks and the sleek new design of the LYB Blog!
