Inspirations from Neil

This week's teaparty challenge is to make cards with a motorcycle theme.  The cards are going to Neil Klippenstein. Neil is a total inspiration to us all!  His positive attitude reminds me of J.R. Martinez. If you have time, you should watch this clip:

Wow!  Is that inspiring or what? 

I used Priscilla's Midnight Madness Sketch to make the card.  You can check it out at:

Her layouts are so amazing! 

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving.  I ate too much as usual.  Right now, my darling husband is practicing frying a turkey in the Infrared Turkey Fryer I gave him 3 years ago. He hadn't even taken it out of the box, but after frying 2 turkeys on Thanksgiving and getting a hole in his fryer - not to mention the over $30 in oil that leaked out of the pot - he finally took the thing out and put it together.  I'll let you know how it comes out (I am a bit afraid since he couldn't find the assembly instructions and put it together by guessing how the parts went together and now he is at the stove mixing wine in the injection marinade and speaking with a cajun accent - he isn't cajun......). 


  1. Great card. Love the bike and the colours you used. Large brads are a lovely touch. I have a graet mental picture of your hubby assembling and speaking in a Cajun accent LOL! Hope it all turns out :)

  2. I love this card, the design and colors are so awesome. How neat after all the things going wrong in turkey frying and your DH still has a sense of humor.

  3. Neil seems to be a great guy with a forgiving heart. How wonderful! He is sure to enjoy your super card.

    Inquiring minds want to know how the fryer assembly turned out. Funny story about your DH.

  4. Happy Thanksgiving...what am I late for dinner. Oh my gosh $30 of oil huh!!! We used to fry turkey's too but when the oil got so expensive I went to brine and haven't turned back. Your card for Neil is just wonderful. Love that motorcycle and those boots as embellishment. You almost make interesting cards with awesome detail. Hope you had an awesome holiday.
