Born to Ride

Morning crafters.
It's a chilly day here and I am fighting the urge to put the heating on!
Instead, I am going to fire up the oven 
and cook a big batch of curry and some apple dumplings :-)

Here's a quick card I made for my BIL.
He regularly takes a trip around Europe, 
with my SIL on the back of the bike -
so I thought this snoopy image would be perfect.

I followed the great sketch over at Seize the Sketch (just flipped it).
Snoopy is coloured with Copics and (although you can't really see in the photos) 
he is popped up on thin, foam pads.
I really wanted to stamp the sentiment right on the paper, 
but my card was almost finished by that stage and I was too chicken. 
So I added it on a little scrap of paper instead ;-)
