Toto's Bike Ride


We have the CUTEST set today for you from Flourishes.  I've been waiting for this set for some time.  It's illustrated by Lauren Pope and I just love what she's done with the set and all the interchangeable pieces you can put in the basket.  It's so perfectly illustrated!

I could not resist this little puppy in the basket, he looks just like Toto to me, from the Wizard of Oz.  And check out the little grin on his face?  Totally precious hey?


Little Toto basket blanket is paper pieced and he's popped up.  The papers are MME Rosy.  I love the stripes and the newsprint.  And isn't that a lovely sentiment?  Are you singing the song now too?    

Here's a closer shot of the coloring and the dimension, I LOVE this basket!  It was fun to color too.  And you just can't go wrong with a red bicycle.  That's the color of my bike and I love it.  


You can also see just a slight bit of the herringbone embossing on the espresso layer behind the main image too.

CUTE! I'll have to get this set just because of that little dog--it looks like my dog, Ozzy, did when he was a puppy (he's named for the Wizard of Oz...not the rocker!) :) Your card is amazing.
