Earworm!

If you're looking for my house card post, go here!


Yes, you will be singing "on a bicycle built for two" for the rest of the day.  You're welcome.

I made this card for The Play Date Cafe's color challenge of barn red, slate blue, and grey.  Last night, I caved and bought a Silhouette subscription.  They were 25% off, so for $7.50 a month I get $25 worth of downloads--score!  That led to this PITA took three tries and still not perfect seriously what's with those spokes adorable tandem bike frame cutout.  The letters are Black Jack font, cut out of adhesive-backed paper.  Why has it taken me this long to be made aware of this invention?  I bought a little tiny pad at Joanne's and will probably be going back for more.

I think the dinner bell is ringing, so I better make this short and sweet!  Adios!

I can't believe no one else cursed you for the earworm yet. {And yes, I am...I first peeked at this last night, and it's been going through my head ever since. And I only know about 3 lines of the darn thing!}
That said, even though it was a PITA it turned out so neat - there's just something about a bicycle on paper that makes me happy. (Me on a bicycle, not so much...lol)

Yes, I'm singing lol!!!! Love your card, especially how you've done the border! Thanks for playing along with us at The Play Date Cafe this week!

took me an inordinate amount of time to figure out PITA. I prevailed, though!
Oh, and dang you for the earworm.
The card, on the other hand, is fabulous! The ability to cut gorgeous fonts is reason enough for me to crave a silhouette...but the bike? Amazing.

I'm laughing at Ang's comment 'cause it took me a few seconds to figure out PITA, too, but I got it! ;) I LOVE this card more than bike stamps?!! No, that's not possible but your card comes pretty darn close and you better win! I love the font and I'm totally getting a Silhouette for my new house. :D
