 Hello everyone,

Another week down and into the second to last week of August, and I'm ashamed to say that I'm not organized at all this year, it is going way too fast.,,never mind, we have other issues today, as it is Wednesday and time for a new challenge over at LITTLE RED WAGON and it is our lovely Kate's turn to host this challenge with the theme.. Bicycle Race - any form of transportation.

I have bike dies, and pictures, very pretty pictures, of bikes, but I also in my stash have ephemera packs, and time to bring one out..

This is my case of ephemera..

and this is the set I used from Stamperia..

The Welcome Home paper pack and ephemeras..

Went straight to the die cuts and started sorting out a layout..

Choosing the bits I needed and even though they were mostly
 mis matched in size, I went with it..

One of the plainer papers in the pack, trimmed to size..

The inside was given a lift too..

The door and window in place along with the pot planters..
and flowers along the window trim..

another heap of flowers along the ground under the window..

The bike in place propped up with foam dots..

and two sentiments chipboard pieces,
 and my welcome home card was complete..totally ephemera.

Do come along if you a riding you bike this week!!

Thank you so much for stopping by..
I'll be back later with DT number two..
