(Pedal) Power to the KitCats!

Hello everyone and welcome to this month's KitCat Sunday!

It was my turn to play hostess, so I decided that we Kittens were taking a bicycle ride! Growing up in the picturesque little town of Beaver PA (go Bobcats!), bicycling was, and still is, what kids of all ages do from the first semi-warm spring day until the first snowflakes fly! My friends and I were no exceptions, traveling *everywhere* on our bikes: school, the pool & playgrounds, the penny candy store, softball games, running market errands for our moms, and of course, to the local Dairy Queen!

I recently got my hands on the retired "Time For You" set from Stampin Up!, so of course, each Kitten's kit included some of the super-cute bicycle images as well as die-cut papers from K&Co.'s Sweet Nectar collection and a slew of coordinating buttons, flowers, bling, and stitched ribbon! I sealed the envies before I addressed them (including mine) so I wouldn't know who was getting which colors.

Pedal over to the other Kittens' blogs with me to see who got what colors and to check out their whimsical creations!

Thanks for stopping by to visit! Happy pedaling!

Oh la lah! Just got home from ice skating and am three shades of frozen solid, lol, so your summery, fun, outdoors bike ride theme is just what I need! This is superbly cute! Sheer perfection in design and your card just pulls together so well! Love the scallop border and the bright, fun colors! Bike riding was always one of my favorite activities as a kid so this was a most refreshing trip down memory lane :) Thank you for that! And this fab kit which was so much fun to work with - you were so generous, there was so much to play with! MUAH! Love ya! x0x0

Petal Pedal Punch Power! *LOVE* the awning you created on this. This card just screams summer (in a "wheeee" coasting down the hill on your bike kind of way). So cute!
