Happy Birthday Colin (cycling Card) and Happy New Year Everyone.

Yes, birthday's have already started in our household for the year. It is my husband's birthday today. Colin really enjoys cycling and cycles to work most week days which is approx a 40km round journey. Then some weekends and Wednesday nights he can be found road racing or track racing. So that is where the theme of the card came from.

I started with a pre scored blue card. Layered with SU Walk in the Park designer paper (I think). Amazing what you can do with a scrap of card. I really wanted to use red and the SU red from Bold Brights was just what I was looking for. All I had left was a square of about 10cm which I managed to cut a circle from and two strips. I must order some more. The cycling picture I got from a 'Sports Illustrated' book I picked up last year for $2..... perfect. I have used my Spellbinder Nestabilites for the medallion. Which I stamped using my wonderful Just Rite Stampers. This is the first time I have used all the tiny letters to spell out my own greeting on the outside ring. Oh this is going to be so much fun. :-) Finished the card with three square blings which I turned on a angle.

Happy New Year to you all.......
