I want to ride my bicycle...

Good morning...this is a scheduled post... I am having a lie-in! Have been looking after my little granddaughters for a couple of days, they have been as good as gold but they do get up really early!!!! We have had a fabulous day on the beach, the sun shone for us .. I even dipped my toes in the sea... it was cold! and I loved every second of watching them hold hands and jump over the waves at the water's edge... magical! Now I am totally exhausted! You soon forget how totally relentless small children are...24/7!
Well, enough of the waffle, the card is my DT contribution for this week's challenge at Sweet Stampin' -Fathers Day. I have cheated a bit as, sadly, my lovely Dad is no longer with us (but I always think of him on this special day). Instead I have made a card with my OH in mind... his birthday is coming up soon and he is an obsessive cyclist! As you can see it is a CAS design.. it speaks for itself!  In my defence the card would be equally suitable for Father's Day!

Please hop over to the challenge blog and check out the lovely creations from my teamies! We are sponsored by cuddlybuddly this week and our monthly sponsor is the Ribbon Girl, so why not share your own lovely Father's Day card with us, you could win a lovely prize!
Be back later.... when I get up!

Hi Chris, what a lovely masculine card - the little bikes are sooo dinky!!

Know what you mean about running around after little ones - mine is coming up on 6, and she's like a whirlwind! Never know whether I'm on my head or heels!!!

Hope you have a good week.
