Biker celebration.

Late post from me today and I don't really know were the day has gone today.  All I can really say is that the food cupboard is suitably stocked. 
Bad but true. 
Were does the day go?

We're hoping to go out and see the New Year in at Burghead Clavie tonight although it is bitter cold outside just now....wrapping up extra warm required.  Plus it's on shortly so better get cracking as I have tea to sort too.

Today I thought I'd share with you a card I made this week for two of my parents biker pals who are celebrating their 40th Wedding Anniversary soon.  Not just any anniversary but this is a Harley biker celebration.

 
I have used a Harley Davidson stamp and papers together with metal sheeting.  The Spellbinder dies are Scalloped Hearts and Labels four.
Another clean and simple card with just a bit of layering.
If you wonder what the Clavie is all about I have added a link above but here is what it looks like.....


 
 
This burning barrel of tar and wood is carried around the village by elected members and drops off "smouldering faggots" for good luck at doorways.  It is really a site to see and usually the village is packed.
 
I'm at work again tomorrow but I will catch up with you again very soon.

Great card...love the DP you used behind the hearts. What fun that you found the Harley logo thingy as it is so perfect with this card.

The burning barrel and smoldering faggots is an interesting custom. it looks very colourful and fun!
