WOYWW 161 - I want to ride my bicycle...

Hot on the heels of Dad's retirement* is his birthday!  Always struggle with mens cards (don't we all?), but Dad enjoys a bit of cycling so I thought a card featuring a bike would be a good idea. 

After a bit of google image searching I came across a bicycle dingbats font which was just perfect.  I pasted a bike into a circle, printed it off and mounted onto a scalloped edge circle.  A background of bicycle wheels was printed onto kraft card and I made a little banner with a sentiment. 

Quite pleased with how it turned out :)

Thanks as ever to Julia for the lovely Woyww idea, don't forget to say hi to the rest of the gang!

*I haven't posted Dad's retirement card on here, suffice to say it was a printed image from Last of the Summer Wine, featuring bikes, my Dad and geo-caching.*

Artists at work #1

I am blog planning, not sure if it will work, but it's worth a try! 

At the time of thinking/writing I am looking at a weekly post with art work by the lovely baby bugs, the usual weekly link up with Julia and the gang for What's on your workdesk Wednesday, a monthly focus on handmade finds from around the web and a weekly look around Pinterest, with other bits and bobs thrown in.  Now, as I type this sitting in a calm and quiet house it seems a good idea - though whether this works in the throws of daily life around here remains to be seen.  Off to do a bit of scheduling while the going's good, but don't hold it against me if my plan goes a bit astray, I'm keeping it real!
