RRD: Hey Life Blog Hop

It is the 1st Thursday of the month, which means there are new releases at Red Rubber Designs!  To celebrate, we are having a hop using one of the new stamp sets available today called "Hey Life".
The bicycle lady image and 2 sentiments are all from "Hey Life".  I chose the patterned paper collection Amberley Grace.  I used 2 patterned papers and 2 tags from the die cut sheet.  The corner accent is from the Pemberley Bay Matchbook kit, which matches Amberley Grace.  The hub of the bicycle wheels are metallic mini brads.
The 2.5" diameter circle punch creates a perfect mat for this round tag. The tag was added to the lower corner and the edges were trimmed. I added an eyelet from the coordinating Amberley Grace hardware to the tag, thru the front of the base card using the Big Bite.  It was just a bit farther in, more than an inch, so my Crop-a-dile couldn't quite get there.  Lastly, I added coordinating ribbon thru the eyelet and tied a bow.

Blog Hop Contest:

The Bicycle Lady needs a name - and we need your help to find it!  Each blog on the hop (except the Red Rubber Designs Blog) has one of the letters of the Bicycle Lady's name somewhere in their blog hop post. Once you find all seven letters (that's a hint!) put them together to form her name. You may have to rearrange them a little bit!

Note: The letter you need from each blog will be obvious if you read carefully.... it looks just a little different from the rest of the letters!

Once you figure it out, email the name to and be sure to put your name and email address in the email with the Bicycle Lady's name. Every correct answer (there's only one correct name) will be entered into a drawing for the featured stamp set, "Hey Life" and one winner will be chosen at random. Good luck!

Contest ends Sunday, May 6th at Midnight (US-CT).

Red Rubber Designs is releasing 8 other stamp sets today.  Here is one of the new sets for May - "America I Love"...

See more new releases at each stop on the blog hop.  I'm featuring "America I Love" on my blog May 28th {Memorial Day}.  It is a great image, so fun to color.

Here is the hop list if you need to start at the beginning.
