Hello stampers and happy Saturday. Today I am going to share my favourite new suite from the January to April mini catalog. It’s called Legendary Ride. What I love about it is the fantastic motorcycles in two sizes and the detailed dies that go with it. The paper is also incredible. I know several customers of mine who either ride themselves or they ride with their husbands. If you know anyone who rides or loves motorcycles, please share my blog post with them.
My First Legendary Ride Card
This card was cased straight from the catalog. I often use the catalog as an idea book. The card may look nice in the catalog, but it always looks even nicer in person. One of the sheets of paper in the Ready To RIde paper has gorgeous images in various rectangle or tag shapes that make it very easy to make a stunning card.
Do you know where the die is from? It comes from the fantastic He’s the Man bundle. Between these two bundles you will have a LOT of inspiration for masculine cards. I almost hesitate to use that phrase because truth be told, these cards would also be great for women!!
Legendary Ride is so compelling to me, that I have used this suite to create my first class with four options.
A Very Transparent Plea
This week I did something that I never thought I would do and it caused me some great soul-searching. After seeing the devastation in Gerard’s greenhouse firsthand, I created a GoFundMe page for Gerard as well as its European counterpart. I hadn’t been in the greenhouse for a while and I was shocked to see so many bulbs and flowers in big heaps in one complete half of the greenhouse. They were all awaiting the chopping machine and the composting bin. Why??
Well, last April Gerard found out that his Royal Velvet amaryllis bulbs had a deadly virus. There is no crop insurance for this. At first he thought he could contain it. Then he was told that 35% of his bulbs would have to be destroyed. In the end, it was 50% of his bulbs that had to go. This is devastating because bulbs usually last at least a lifetime.
I was moved to make a video which I shared on YouTube. Please consider watching it and sharing it. If you want to donate (please feel no obligation) just click on the blue links above.
Thanks for joining me today and thanks for being a part of my stamping community. These days I am not blogging quite as often as before but I am very active on YouTube so I would be absolutely thrilled if you subscribed to my channel and joined me there for creative inspiration!! Have a super day!
