Life is a Journey...

A few days ago, my son-in-law celebrated his birthday. As I thought about what kind of card to make for him, I really struggled to come up with a design. Then I came across this Silhouette Design #53272, called Mountain Bike Wheel.

Isn't that an amazing cut? The spokes on each wheel are so thin, it's a wonder that they didn't get completely messed up during the cutting process. As I look at this photo, I see that I didn't get one little negative cut shape pulled out (look at the lower right section of the panel). I'll fix that as soon as I'm done with this post.

Since the wheels designate a journey, I decided to use a sentiment that reflected that, as well.

I created the banner in the Silhouette software, adding the starburst cutout. I also used my Silhouette to print the front and inside sentiments before cutting out the banner and the inside panel. It's so easy to center everything when it's all done on one machine.

The main font that I used for this card is called "Simply Gorgeous." It has a fun flow to it, and it doesn't look too "girly."

We will soon be home from our trip, and then I will be able to share some pictures and stories with you. Not too many, though. I don't want to bore you!!

Thank you so much for stopping by, and remember to laugh--a little or a lot--every day.

Great card for a bicyclist. It is fun to be able to personalize cards to specific people.
