Tour de Chook! ...

Hello There

Has anyone been watching all the sports of the Commonwealth or Tour de France recently?  Now as most of you may be able to tell, I am not a real sporty kinda gal, but I have been especially enjoying all the good nature and thrills of the Commonwealth Games.  Aren't the Home Nations doing so well?  And as for Erraid...isn't she just a doll?  Well done.  She is a star in the making!

I thought I would share some cycling cards with you.  You may recall that I made a pink cycling card for a friend to send to her friend recently.  Well the recipient's birthday was last week and she was thrilled by the card I made, so much so that she told the sender not to buy any more cards, but that she was just going to get this one out every year!  Awww bless!

I made some alternative versions to have in hand too...

Don't you just love the washi tape I have used?  It is a NBUS having seen it in a local branch of Wilkinson and fell in love with it.  

The papers and brads are VOs and some bits are Snippets so I off to whizz this over to the Snippets Playground.  The stamp is Penny Black of course, the stamped banners and the "ribbon" as well as the embossing folder are all SU.  All coloured in with Copics.

Thanks for calling by.  I shall give someone a push on the swings if you fancy!

I couldn't agree more, she comes across as such a little sweetheart, a lovely shy quality to her but she obviously has incredible inner strength. I will whisper this - I actually haven't watched very much and didn't watch the Opening Ceremony (I watched even less of the Olympics).
Oh those are such fun - brilliant designs.

Your washi was custom made to go with these chooks cards.

Also love that folding banner that holds the sentiment. Love the accordian folding look of it!

Terry said...

Oh your two cards gave me such a big smile this morning! I just love the moving cows on their bicycles. The banners are wonderful and I love how you used the washi tape! I am sure the recipient was thrilled! Hope you have a wonderful day!
