Hope you have a wheelie good birthday, Son

It's one of my stepson's birthday later this week (I'm sure it's quite safe to show it here because I don't think he looks at my blog - and if his partner does, then please don't tell him).

Anyway, I've used the sketch for Cupcake craft 116:

I someimes find it difficult to make cards for family because I've been cardmaking for over ten years now and it can be hard coming up with new ideas. Steve is interested in bikes, so I know this will be appropriate (although I think I might have done a card similar to this a couple of years ago - oh yes, I've tried to keep scans of them, but have changed computers and some got lost). But I think it's sufficient different to be OK.

I've had the background sentiments papers and scalloped strips for quite some time, but they definitely come in handy sometimes. The image is a photo I got as part of a 'man' kit - lots of useful photos on all sorts of manly pursuits - they come in very handy too.
