ENJOY THE RIDE - Silhouette Cameo

Hi Everyone!  Surprise, Surprise, Surprise - I made a card!!  HAAAA!!!  It's been a LONNNGGGG time since I've been in my Happy Space and I actually made this card at my Mom's house on Sunday.  

I made this card as a Thank You card for my brother and sister-in-law.  A few weeks ago, my mom took Jacob to their "retirement home" in Virginia for a visit.  My brother and his wife love to ride bicycles and they built their house near the New River Trail in Galax, Virginia.  Now, Jacob had never learned to ride his bicycle and the reason for that was my husband let him go over the handle bars while trying to teach him so he wouldn't trust us to teach him after that.  So my brother and his wife told him that they would teach him.

So when Mom and Jacob got to Virginia, Brian took Jacob to Walmart and bought him a new bicycle.  Keep in mind that Jacob had a brand new bicycle in the garage that had been there for several years that he wouldn't touch!  Anyway, so Brian and Terrie worked with Jacob the next morning, and he was riding within an hour.  He caught on very fast and has been riding VERY FAST ever since.  Jacob wants to know when he can go back to Brian and Terrie's because he had so much fun.  Here he is when they got him to stop long enough to take a picture.

Thus the card - Enjoy The Ride is what Jacob has been doing since that weekend.  He wrote a personal note to them thanking them for all they did for him.

I downloaded the images from the Silhouette Library.  I just love the Chevron pattern that is so popular these days so I cut that image out to cover a 5 x 7 card base then cut the phrase and adhered it to the top.  All in all, I think it turned out really cute.

Well, thanks for stopping by for a visit - Mom and I appreciate your visits and your comments.  Until another day, God Bless You!  Donna

  1. Cute card. Love all the elements. Sometimes a parent just can't be the teacher.
