Riding My Bike


Well i was officially a disaster zone yesterday i got up around 6am, had breakfast, got H's lunch ready and decided i would have a shower at 7.45am, as i was walking up the stairs i slipped on something and banged the top half of my thigh ( i now have a bruise the size of a saucer), after my shower i thought i had better dry my hair and as i leaned down to plug the hairdryer in i banged my cheek on the wooden laundry basket, then on the way to school, i have to let Whisper do her business on an open grassed area, as she won't do it in the garden and a bird pooped on my head !!, so after dropping H off i then had to go home and rewash my hair !!

I wanted to enter the Challenge over at Papertake Weekly, to use only 1 DP, but was unsure of what paper to use, so today i showed H and Alan a few and they both decided on this 1, DCWV - 'Text Prints' (a very old pack), the image is LOTV - 'Riding My Bike', the notebook border die is from 'Whiff Of Joy and one i treated myself to (after seeing it on the lovely Vicky's blog and thought it would be ideal for men's cards), from Bunny Zoe's Crafts, when i was fortunate enough to win a voucher from them a couple of weeks ago, the tag is LOTV, but the sentiment is 'Paula Pascal', Candy Dots - 'Peppermints' and Distressed ink 'Tumbled Glass'.

Brilliant boys card Sam. The image looks fab and I love the design.
Hope you're not too sore. It's supposed to be good luck if a bird poops on your head!!
Have a good weekend

Hi Sam

A great image and I love the background paper very much.

Sounds like Saturday was a bit of a disaster day .. .. I hope it improved as the day went on and that Sunday was much better.

Love Jules xx

Sam, I have to admit I laughed at the way you told your story, but nothing funny about all those bumps and bruises. Some days it just does not pay to get up and get going.

Love this image, so darn cute, and the card you made around it.
