Riding along...

... hmm the name of the blog post might give this away, but just wanted to blog my nephews birthday card, he is a keen cyclist and currently in France doing one of the stages of the Tour de France that they leave open for the amateurs once the professionals have been. Hope he is having a great time and is careful on his bike (I think he paid more for his bike than I did my car!!!).

Anyhoo, enough waffling :

The image is a colouring book page that I googled and downloaded and coloured with promarkers - I have matted it onto yellow & red card and used possibly papermania dp. Finally added sentiment and coloured card candy from my stash to match.

I would like to enter this into:

A gem of a challenge - lets hear it for the boys
Here come the boys - sporty
I love promarkers - CAS
Crafters Companion - one for the boys
One stitch at a time- anything goes
Papercrafting journey - for him

Thanks for looking
