Card for my cousin's youngest grandson

Good morning everyone, I hope all is well in your world. As for me, well I do not like this unseasonal warmth at all, last week I was scraping my car when I came out of work at 10pm, now I am roasting!!!!!

My cousin's youngest Grandson is soon to be 18, between Christmas and the New Year. Along with his Dad, he is a market trader, and he is also a cyclist as well as being welded to his mobile phone LOL. I have made cards for him featuring mobile phones before so decided to give them a miss this time!


Why does it never upload them in the order I do them?????
Front is an old postcard of Long Eaton market as it used to be, it has never been the same since they moved it!!! BUT, I suppose it is safer in these days of congested roads etc. I do remember well how we used to take our life into our hands when shopping there LOL.
Sentiment is computer generated, with a Memory Box diecut bicycle seemingly pulling it along like a banner!
Inside is a map showing the general area where they live and a memory Box Penny Farthing bicycle.
I was a bit unsure about whether it was suitable for an 18 year old young man but I am assured by his Grandma and Grandad, and his Dad, that he will love it :o)

I am of the opinion all of the youngsters and welded to their mobiles Jackie, I talk to my crew some days, they nod, grunt but their eyes don't leave the screen and their finders don't stop clicking.

Your cards sound absolutely perfect for this young man.

Hope you have a good weekend.

Great work Jackie, love the use of the old postcard.

It's a fabulous card Jackie and I know he'll love it, youngster or not.. how could anyone not love something so personalised!

With regard to your photos in the right order - mine do the same when they upload - it's really annoying... but if you just click on whichever and drag it around to below the other... it works!

And hmmm... this weather! I dug out my thermals last week, and this week, like you, I'm roasting... And my plants in the garden don't know what to do! My clematis has started it's growth for next year!
