Sometimes you just have to follow your bliss



I'm back at work, my leave went really quickly and although it was a mixture of good and bad it was still nice to have the time off. My first day back at work today wasn't too bad, the customers were actually quite nice to me  so all in all it's OK being back at work (hope I haven't spoken too soon).

The other day I came across patterned paper with scooters on it and I just had to buy it. I made this card for a good friend who has always wanted to learn how to ride a bike, I wish she would just do it and follow her bliss, life is too short to not achieve goals. I know that bikes are dangerous but they are so much fun to ride and I have to admit that whenever I am in in an Asian country I like nothing better than going on a motor bike ride. I kept this card simple focusing on the quote, sun and scooter that has been cut out from my newly acquired paper.The sun,little circles in the sun rays,sentiment and bird are rub-on's. I am not overly happy with how the rays on the sun turned out but overall I like the card and will do another version of it soon.
