FWF-Bicycle Birthday Wishes...

Hello.  Happy Friday!! Today I am sharing a bicycle birthday card I made with a Unity itty bitty (bicycle image) and the sentiment is actually from the July 2010 KOTM.  I use the type font sentiments from that kit a lot.  I am getting an arsenal of birthday cards ready for the spring.  We have a ton of spring birthday's in our family, including all of my boys.  My birthday card stash has dwindled, so time to restock!  The strip of DP is from Basic Grey's Life of The Party collection.  I added some baker's twine from The Twinery to the top and to the button on the pennant.

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend.  We are off to buy a new TV.  Our TV is mounted over our fireplace in the family room.  About a month ago, my oldest was throwing a tube of chapstick at the wall (why he was doing that, I have no clue)!  It ended up hitting right smack dab in the middle of the TV screen and shattered something inside, so now we have two lovely, bright pink lines going through the middle of the screen!  We decided to wait forl all of the Super Bowl TV sales to replace it.  Wish me luck!

Thanks for stopping by!

I absolutely LOVE this card. I'm sorry...I did have to laugh at your TV story! When my husband was in high school he threw a tube of chapstick into the ceiling fan (seemed like a good idea at the time...)..it knocked the chapstick out of the plastic and the chapstick hit my MIL square in the neck in the kitchen...she thought she had been shot! LOL!
