Pedal Power

What a busy week it has been! I had all the best intentions of loading some posts on to my blog, but it all came to nothing…..so finally, here I am with my first post of the weekend.

This is a card that I made especially for my husband who is a dedicated cyclist and recently completed the 100 mile Prudential London ride in aid of MacMillan Cancer care, where he successfully raised over £800 and completed the ride in under 5 hours….good going don't you think?

I bought this image from Polkadoodles, especially to make a card for him and I have customised it to look like his cycle kit.
I was a bit worried about all of that black, but, in the end, it was his hair (which has a lot of tray 'highlights' these days) which was the hardest to achieve.

Also, although I have many, many ribbons I couldn't find just the right colour in my stock, so the simple answer was to colour white ribbons with my pens for a perfect match.  :-)

I hope that you like my card for today. Here are some lovely challenges that I would like to enter:

  14. That;s a fantastic thing for your husband to do and what a wonderful amount to raise for a good cause! He certainly deserves a personalised congratulations card after that effort and you have knocked it out of the park with your lovely colouring, fab design and the trio of coloured ribbons :-)
