Crafter's Cafe Challenge #227 - School related and/or Tea and Coffee

As you can tell, I selected the school related theme for my Dt card this challenge at the Crafter's Cafe.  I am just not sure that in this day of uncertainty many kids ride bikes to school, but it could be an option!  The bike image is from Morgan's Art World.  You have two weeks to complete this challenge and a chance to win some digis!  I colored the bike with markers, and added various embellishments, including 3 green shiny dots in the top left - hard to see in the photo..  The panel right behind the bike is actually duck tape.  It adds a bit of texture without being bulky. The other layers include papers from my stash.

Z fold for birthdays

These are two cards I made for my sister and sister-in-law.  (The top view is card one and the bottom two views are the two sides of the second card.  The backing is double sided cs, and most of the images are freebies from TLC.   I especially wanted to use the main image of #1 - an ad for a Dometic sewing machine.  My sister has 3 fancy machines, I think, and I thought she would enjoy the humor and vintage feel.  Sorry the photo is not better = I thought I had more - but the card has been sent off so too late to correct!  The main verse says "So far this is the oldest you have ever been, so eat, drink and be merry.."

In memory of Bev

This freebie printable from TLC is just right for a sympathy card to send to our friend whose wife passed away recently.  It is pre colored.  The sentiment is an old favorite stamp by Paper Inspirations.  I kept the background simple - the color is close to Hunter green.  I added some acrylic dots to tie the images together.
