Let the Good Times Roll – InKing Royalty Blog Hop

Welcome to InKing Royalty’s April Blog Hop! This year’s hops are themed around some of our favorite songs. Today’s hop pulls inspiration from B.B. King’s song “Let the Good Times Roll.” How fun is that?! We’ve created projects that either feature images with wheels (carts, wagons, bikes) or celebrate good times. We are excited to share our projects with you. After you read my post, I hope you’ll hop over to the next person on the list at the base of this post.

My project for today’s blog hop features the Bike Ride Bundle with the Ribbon of Courage Bundle!

My mom, Pixie, LOVED apples, so today’s card is a bit of an ode to her. She lived every moment, laughed every day, and loved with all her heart! Red was also her favorite color, so I added splashes of red throughout.

The Bike Ride bundle is SO fun to work with! For this card, I opted to die-cut all the pieces, which made it very easy to put together! I’m so happy the Bike Ride stamp set and coordinating Build a Bike framelits are carrying over – they’re only available at the bundled price until May 31, so if you want the bundle pricing, get it before the new catalog!

Thank you so much for stopping by today! I hope you’ll hop along to the next stop on the blog hop, Denise Hoepfner at The Mountain Magpie. There’s lots of inspiration to be found in this group – and you don’t want to miss it!

  1. The first works to pop into my mind were crisp and clean (and no caffeine!) Such a great card. I’m sure Pixie would love it!

  2. I love everything about this classically simple card. The way the bike overlaps just a touch on each side, the bold panels of colors in the background, the perfect sentiment and the ode to Mom. <3 So glad you hopped with us today, Julie! <3
