I like to ride my bicycle ...

Just in time for Father's day this Sunday, this is the first guy's card that I actually like, even with the lack of anything remotely pink, glittered or floral on it.  I really like the simple sketch and I've added a couple of buttons that I've had for well over a year, plus a fence die that I've not used for ages either.

I really must use my dies more often.    One of my favourite blogs to visit is the lovely Alison, and she uses so many beautiful dies on her cards, I pledge to use mine more every time I see her wonderful creations.  I'm starting off with a simple one with my little fence !!!

Ohhh, I'm so glad I came over for a closer look. On my desktop with the little bitty thumbnail image, it looked like he was doing the 'potty dance.' I thought to myself, "No, that can't be...well...it's Annette, so maybe..." LOL...OH, there's a bike there!!!! Now I get it. AWESOME card A. Holy wow I love your coloring and that fence and what a flippin cool embellishment.
