OG 155 Bicycle built for two....

When I was small, my grandmother sang only one song that I remember, and it was...

"Daisy, Daisy, give me your answer do.
I'm half crazy all for the love of you.
It wont be a stylish marriage,
I can't afford a carriage,
But you'll look sweet
Upon the seat
......of a bicycle built for two."

So this challenge was meant for me (thank you Poobahs) and my ATC is a tiny tribute to my one-of-a-kind grandmother and her light voice gifting me this song in my memory.

I found the image on the 'net... was it really a stamp?  And the honeycomb cardstock is from one of the beautiful TE kits I'm still hoarding. See other interpretations here.....

Opus Gluei #154 Colour Challenge

Every now and then these ladies throw down the gauntlet and its hard to walk away..........well, its easy to walk away but then I feel guilty. Afterall, what could be hard about playing with paper?  EVERYTHING, when you're not allowed to use your favourite things.  So I ventured down the page a little, fell in love with Rosemary's beautiful fiery orange bookmarks........and had to play along.

First, an ATC the opposite of my usual colour choice - shades of cream, and finally a place to use a piece of lacy doily plus a bit of bling for interest.  It seemed a shame to cut into such a big piece of paper for the tiny scrap if music I used, so I kept cutting and came up with a second thought which took me down another unexpected path - PINK. So far out of my comfort zone I'm beginning to gasp for air!!  And even some hologram glitter (well, just a wee tiny flash)....and as I put the boxes away a piece of chain caught in my sleeve and became the inspiration for the third. 

Enough, I'm exhausted and having to sit in a darkened room to recover from so many colours in the same post.  Please can I go back to black next time?

Don't forget to see what all the other people have been up to too...........
