I decided to make a birthday card for my nephew’s son Jacob this year. He is such a sweetheart. He probably won’t remember me from last Summer but I wanted him to know I think of him often. I decided being a boy he probably spent a great deal of the Summer on his bike. I actually used a Magnolia stamp haven’t used one in years as I’ve gotten into the digi scene. It was fun to dig them out again. so here is my card for Jacob.
I had so much fun coloring and making this card for him. You can’t see it but I did use Glossy Accents on the reflector on the bike. I’m so glad I had this done before we went to Glacier. I couldn’t believe it when I tripped over a tree root. I had walked over the rocky dried river bed and 2′ from the edge I tripped and messed up my left side from top to bottom. Then I’ve been doing my Fall cleaning and today twice I fell off my three-step stool. I hurt from head to toe. Specially my left wrist. I have the bedroom all tore apart so I have to keep going.
Thank you for stopping and visiting with me for a while. As always I appreciate the love you leave.
Have a great week!

Well, life has settled into a routine around here. No more spilled drinks in the morning. That’s a good thing. (See previous post about that disaster). Decided that waving good-bye was better for all than the hug. I prefer the hug but do not have any desire to scrub the floor any more often than I have to. Hubby came home at noon that day and said he had something on his pants. OOPS! Probably the coffee that spilled on his computer bag. Anyway, June is a month of birthdays for us. Both my sisters have birthdays one day apart. My oldest sister’s is first. I actually have it done early that is a record for me!
I made a birthday card using both Tilda and Edwin riding their bikes. Many happy memories doing that growing up. In fact, it was my sister that taught me how to ride my (her hand-me-down) bike. On to the card.

It really isn’t orange paper or coloring. But you can only take so many pictures before you start pulling out your hair. I took pictures in front of every window in the house and the best color was still in the dark with my Ott-Lite and flash.
