On yer bike!

When I saw the Summer Mini Catalogue for the first time, I knew I had to have the Pedal Presents stamp set. I loved it. You may have seen me post on here a few times that I've been out on my bike. I don't go out much, it's a bit of a hassle getting it up out of the basement, but when I do go out I always regret not going out more. There's a few too many hills round these parts for my liking too, it was much flatter where I grew up in Cambridgeshire!

There's a few of my colleagues from work who enjoy cycling too, so every now and again we go out on rides after work, the odd weekend ride, and even a night ride along the canal to Bingley and back to Leeds. One of my now retired colleagues set himself the challenge of riding the End to End ride, a whopping 1,100 miles from John O'Groats to Lands End over 3 weeks. Amazing! As a well done to him, and to give him a bit of sponsor money for his efforts (which went to RNLI for lifeguards and rescue at sea, and Sparks, funding medical research into health conditions affecting babies) I made this card.

I used Crumb Cake, Very Vanilla and Soft Suede card stock, and used the Labels Collection Framelit Dies to cut out around the bike and the border. I coloured the balloons in with Daffodil Delight, Real Red and Pacific Point markers, and used the Curly Cute stamp set for the Congratulations sentiment.
