I wanted to share with you a card I made for my son, Joshua's, 33rd birthday in September. The picture is a photo of the gas tank on his motorcycle - or I should say - his former motorcycle.
Every mother's nightmare - Josh had an accident on his bike right around his birthday - a woman cut him off and he slammed right into the side of her minivan. He crashed into her side window - but thank goodness he had on a full face helmet that totally protected his head (it was all deeply etched from the impact). Then he flew over the handlebars of the bike and landed in the street on all fours. His hand got pretty cut up on the glass and it took them 20 minutes in the ER to get all the glass pieces out of it and to stitch him up. He was out of work for 3 weeks and couldn't drive.
It was really a miracle that he walked away from the accident. And I thank God every day for it.
Josh was most depressed about losing his beloved bike as it was totalled. So I thought he would appreciate a birthday card with this picture on it. The Ribbon Tag Nestability and black twill with the silver brads looks like the leather saddle bags he had on his bike.
I silver embossed this perfect sentiment from the Free Spirit - Sentiments set by Waltzingmouse. It's funny - when I got this set and read all of the sentiments in it - I thought - well, that's an interesting one - but didn't think I'd ever have an opportunity to use it - so you never know when something will be just what you need to express your feelings!
The panel is embossed with the Tim Holtz Bricked embossing folder.
Josh is now back to work and riding a newer motorcycle similar to his first one but without the beautiful Indian head on the gas tank.
Thanks so much for stopping by today!
