Tandem Bike Love Card

When I retired in 2012 from working at a Hallmark store to be my own boss as a Stampin' Up Demonstrator, doing calligraphy work and dog care/walk I would have not thought I would go outside of my comfort zone to work at a plant nursery, Calloway's Nursery. I hired on as a cashier but the person that was suppose to do the daily week morning watering of plants out front & inside the store background check did not pass and so I ended up with the tasks. I'd not thought about how getting up early in the morning to be in by 7am & how physical the job would be. Well I have a new job that I will tell more about soon. Definitely will not have to get up early & will not be physical work.

Had this stamp/die set for quite some time but think I've only used once. Used Glossy accents on the red balloons. Hubby and I ride a tandem bicycle. I cut the sentiment so word 'YOU' would be replaced with 'US' that I used calligraphy to hand write.
