Vroom vroom...

some more Cruisin' today. I made this card for a special man in my life, my dad. I don't make him to many cards because he opens them says oh that's nice and tosses them aside. LOL He doesn't understand that he is suppose to ohhh and ahhh over them like my girls but that isn't why I make them so it is all good. 


When I saw this motorcycle stamp in the catalog I knew I had to have it right away as I have many people in my life that actually love motorcycles. This is the first time I have taken this set for a ride. I kept the card pretty simple. I popped up the bike. 

What I also love about this set is the barbed wire. Here is a random fact or two about me. I live in the farming town where barbed wire was invented! Our schools often use barbed wire on different things and is known as the home of the Barbs and our school mascot a giant black crow when I went to school here his name was Barbie Crow but I guess they have changed it since then. Giggles...so there you have it, I should get quite a bit of use out of this fun set.


I always finish off the insides of my cards as you can see here it is just like the outside and then I have a big white square in there so I can write a quick note. I also added more barbed wire on the front of the envelope.


One last view you can see I popped up the different parts of the card. I was thinking about adding some bling on the inside of those stars but decided I liked it without. 

So over the last few days I have spent some time going through my blog and fixing my tags. I noticed that often I do not give you, dear reader, enough information and I am sorry! I guess I just get so excited about sharing something new with you that some times I give you bad photo's and no details. I will try to be better you might notice my tags grew...a lot! I went through and added paper packs and stamp sets to all of my posts. In doing this I also noticed I used to be a more consistent blogger and so I will be trying to be more consistent as well. I am pretty excited.
