Don't Drink and Cycle

Don't drink and cycle, folks...also, don't drink and craft.....

Last weekend my daughter asked me (on Friday night) to make a birthday card for her friend. She needed it the following morning when she would leave the kids with me so she could go out with the friend. (What a full service I provide!).

The ideas my daughter gave me...bikes, dogs, yoga, Prosecco.  I didn't have time to incorporate all these ideas(!) so I decided to cut out a bike and a bottle on the Silhouette and put the bottle on the back rack of the bike. Being Friday night, I'd had a couple of glasses of wine before I started making the card and when I got up on Saturday morning to do the finishing touches, I realised I'd accidentally stuck the bottle to the saddle!

Ok it was a stupid idea to stick the bottle on the rack but on the saddle looked even sillier! So, I tried to rescue it by adding two glasses onto the rack.'s just a card- not real life!

Anyway - the patterned paper is from a Prima pad, the sentiment is Personal Impressions and the flowers were all punched.

I'd like to enter:

  9. I never thought of the bottle being placed at a wrong place, it belongs there on the saddle if you ask me. Your daughter certainly gives you challenges, and short deadlines too. I really like this and you picked such lovely soft colors too. It's gorgeous!

  10. Fun story behind this card. :) I love the color palette and I thought the placement of the bottle was just very imaginative, not bad at all! I think this turned out fun!

  11. I love how you kept the colours similar, it makes for an outstanding card. Very pretty. Thanks for sharing with Aud Sentiments!
