Bicycle Birthday Card

Happy Wednesday! This week at Little Red Wagon, Donna is our hostess and she wants us to celebrate the boys in our lives by creating masculine birthday cards. This is the perfect opportunity to create something for one of the men in your life - whether young or old!


I created my card using the Beautiful Ride stamp and die set from Simon Says Stamp. The banner, HAPPY stamp and birthday word die are all products retired from My Craft Spot.

Please head over to Little Red Wagon to see what the rest of the Girlfriends have made and link up your own masculine birthday card too!

I'm also linking up my card to this week's Simon Says Stamp challenge: Anything Goes.

Thanks to those of you who have been thinking of and saying prayers for my husband. He remains in hospital. This weekend was an especially difficult one and he ended up being sedated due to severe pain. However, he's starting to do a bit better and was even able to have a bit to eat yesterday.

Beautiful card, Kate! I love the background behind your bicycle and the way the sentiment is two toned and offset!
Hope your husband continues to improve! I'll pray for him as he comes to mind!

Wonderful card! I love that it has soft colours but it's still masculine.

I love the soft watercoloring you did, Kate. The background looks like you're riding through a field of wildflowers and what could be better than that. I'm so sorry that you and Ralph are going through such an ordeal. I continue to keep you in my prayers.
