Born to be Wild!

I know the days are supposed to get longer and all ain't true. Not for me, anyway. I seem to be playing catch up all the time. My day usually ends with me crashing into bed...and it seems 30 seconds later the alarm is off again. I don't remember it being this way last year. Do you? There's a pattern of forgetfulness and I'm constantly wondering if I've forgotten something.  Perhaps my friend Sandie is right... my memory is failing me because I am old-er.

And why am I here? Aaah yes! To tell you about this card I made for our dear friend's birthday, which isn't until June 16th. Still early, but the way things are going these days, I might forget all about it. He's into motorbikes but unfortunately his wife is not so enthusiastic.  So, here's one way to live that fantasy:

The papers are form Basic Grey's "Life of the Party" 6x6 pad.

The bike stamp is by Hot Off The Press, stamped with Memento Espresso Truffle and coloured with Promarkers. The birthday greeting is from WMS "Half Pint Heroes" set. 

For embellies I have 3 pewter studs by Woodware. I also inked all edged with TH's Vintage Photo. 

Pressies for the birthday boy!

The sketch is form Mojo Monday #296 and I gave it a 90º turn. Other challenges: Challenges 4 Everybody #21 "Anything Goes"Joanna Sheen Challenge"Spots and Stripes"Spark Your Creativity Now #10 "Anything Goes"Brown Sugar Challenge #44 "Masculine Birthday" and ABC Challenges #31 "Masculine Cards".

That's all from me today. Thanks for stopping by and I wish you all a productive Monday.



  1. Great male card and fabulous layout. I'll have to remember this one. This stamp would be ideal for my husband's friend who is into motor bikes in a big way - riding them, re-building them etc. I agree with you Asha - I'm sure there are fewer hours in the day than they used to be! Lol! Enjoy what is left of your day! Love from Christine xx
