Wheels go round!

Evening all!
Hope you've all enjoyed the lovely spring weather we had this weekend, so nice to have windows and doors open :)
Less is More and Addicted to CAS have very similar challenges this week and although one card would have done I made two!!!
LIM's challenge is:
As March is another five Saturday month, we have the additional 
Lucky Dip Challenge.
It also means that we have a Guest Designer, which this month is 
The theme for your cards this week is 
You may interpret this as you wish, but we must be able to recognise the connection!

                                      and Addicted to CAS has a code word
We are now up to Challenge #35 and your hostess this fortnight is Sylvia.
Here is her codeword -
Here's what I came up with although the wheels on the bus were etched on my brain!

I cut out three circles the same size as some Artemio stamps that are NBUS and used a matching ink to stamp them in the apertures. I diecut a label shape and stamped a WOW sentiment in it. Three pearls to finish it off as it looked a bit bare.

This one is simply kraft card with embossed lines edged with a white pen and the bike was cut with my Silhouette, which is back in use since my computer is running perfectly now :) Once again a WOW sentiment embossed in white.

Apologies for the poorly lit photos but the bulb went in my craft room and the replacement was a lower wattage!

I have had a great Mother's day, sitting in the sunshine, crafting and Dom cooked me a wonderful roast dinner. He also got me a triple cd that I wanted and put it on my ipod and Keir sent me a fabulous bouquet of beautiful roses, one spoilt mum :)

So glad your Mother's Day was wonderful! Your first card is really pretty and your design brings interest with it! I really like the images you chose for your circles too. Your second card is too too cute. Like how you did the embossed lines too!

Glad you had a wonderful Mother's Day, Val! I thought for sure that you would do a "Wheels on the Bus" card for Charlie! Nevermind, the ones you did do are sensational! I especially love that paneled CAS card with the sweet bike on kraft paper! Hugs, Darnell
