Today's card was made for one of the doctors at my husbands work who retires today.  He is a keen cyclist and I'm sure will be cycling all the more once his stethoscope gets hung up for good.

Best wishes David for a long and happy retirement!

So for my card, I contacted Wendi at Ooh La La for help - I wanted a cyclist, but not a cartoon character one and so she sent me files from the Carnival of Colour CD - available here to work with.  Thank you so much Wendi, I love them - the image and papers are just perfect - and look, I even did a card insert!
