Wow - What a Ride!

My son is a biker - he eats sleeps motorcycles -  he even works at a motorcycle shop.  So - when I saw this great motorcycle stamp set by A Jillian Vance Design called Live to Ride - I bought it so I could make cards for him that he would like!

Have I made a card with it yet????  We know the answer to that right??  Yes - the answer is NO!

So - when I saw this week's CAS-logy cue card - Blue challenge

Somehow I made the connection that  I could make a biker card in blue!  I made it a side fold and the size is 3" x 5"

Clean and biker simple -  I just added 3 silver half pearls on the spokes and saddle bag, because you really have to have SOME silver on a bike right??!

Here's my son, Josh (he's 6'3"), with his fiance April on Christmas Day -  April is holding Mila - my niece Katies' new baby girl.  I wanted to post a pic of Josh on his bike - but I couldn't find any of the pics I have of him!! (my computer crashed recently and I have pics on disks all over the place!)
 Thanks for coming by today!

Stamps:  A Jillian Vance Design - Live to Ride
Paper:  White - PTI
Ink:  Momento Nautical Blue
Accessories:  silver half pearls - Michaels.
