THOUGHT YOU MIGHT NEED A PICK ME UP

recently, we lost a great friend of the family, he was like a brother to my son.
 he will be forever our hearts.     i made this card for his family.

Thought You Might Need a Pick Me Up
9.50" x 3.75"
fits in a # 10 envelope
i decided to play a bit with some of the huge stamps collection i have but for the sentiment i just couldn't use any other but this one:
 "thought you might need a pick me up"

this is the entire card and you already know is a long one. i always forget to make any size bigger than the standard a2. i am changing that path with this card. i have so much paper it won't make a dent in my stash, lol, to the opposite, it will help me a great deal.

the bike is a chipboard element i got with my sps stickers order. i thought the bike was a nice change from the regular pick up truck.
i stamped the arrows (so popular now and a trend i like) and the stitches. the little blue flower on one of the pennants (which i cut by hand) is from  a fancy pants  stickers set i had in my stash.
the gorgeous patterned paper is from k&co.

i think my card will really give this family a real "pick me up" in this time of sorrow.

---i also decorated and stamped the inside of the card---

Supplies Used
(in case you want to know)
patterned paper:     k&co (terri conrad "sweet life")
