Enjoy the ride


Good morning,  here'#s a card  from me featuring this week's NR image at Catch the Bug

This cute image makes me smile, bringing back memories of when I was a child. There were some 'big boys' who lived across the street and owned a tandem. They would give the little kids rides on the back- We would all queue up to have a turn, I must have been about 6 or 7 at the time and my feet went nowhere near the pedals. I just clung onto the handlebars for dear life while the lad pedalled around the block- no helmets or safety precautions whatsover- no one turned a hair  those days, it's amazing that any of us survived!
We had a lot of fun though!
I followed this sketch from Sweet Sketch Wednesday

Sketch #203

Thanks for visiting and have a lovely day.

Oh, Chris, I adore your card it's awesome. I think it's the colours that completely rock with me, they are perfect for this image and this card. I love your memories. That was the good old days when we had no fear and there was trust. Today is just so different which is sad. Great card and thanks so much for sharing it with us over at Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 and good luck.
