Mmm, ch-ch, mmm, aah!

First of all, 50 bonus points to anyone who gets the reference in the title!  (I'm afraid it also means you're probably over the hill, like me! lol)

Here's another card I made while staying with Hels last weekend.  I've shown it twice cos there was a bit of discussion about which way up it should go.  My favourite is the first way, which is yours?  :)

WEll either you can´t sleep like me or this is preprogrammed post at almost FOUR in the morning....I really like the piece and as far as which way is up...mmmmmm ,,,I better sleep on it bacause I can´t make up my mind. It looks fab in both directions but since I am lacking in better judgement at such a wweeee hour I just can´t make up my mind,,,this one that one,,no that one....you see I am hopeless. I need my beauty rest before I make such an important decision. I will be back after I have 40 winks...ok
Now you go get some rest!!!

"Riding along on my push-bike, Honey ...." Love it Dan! Sounds like you and Hels are a really "crafty" duo, lol

I must be an old fart as well,the song being the pushbike song.. was it by mungo gerry? but more importantly love the colours you have used. Great card.

You have me stumped with the title Dan, although I'm sure I'll be saying..."of course it is!!" when someone enlightens me LOL

I prefer the first version - the 'rope' works better for me going down the card rather than across. Great card though, any which way.

Toni :o)

Great card first image is the right way for me !!

Gabby said...

The first was is great and I love this card! I am old but I don't get it ... boo hoo ... no bonus points for me. :(

Love the card Dan and the colours. The song that immediately came to mind was not so 'old'! LOL. It was....'I Want To Ride My Bicycle' by Queen but then that title in your post isn't in the song! Duh! *Ü* I do prefer the first image.

I love the applique image on your apron in a previous post and what a fab pressie. Also...the Daz post did make me smile. It reminds me of my childhood...my mum (bless her, she was 97 in May) ALWAYS used Daz. Do you remember the DJ - Alan Freeman who did the commercial for Daz...or was it OMO? LOL. Well one of the soap powders. I LOVE nostalgia. TFS. ~Glen~

Cynthia Schelzig said...

I´m baaaack! ok I had 150 winks and can now make up my mind....the top image...go for it!!!!!!!!

Got that push bike song in my head now....thanks! ha ha. Much prefer the 1st version, love the colours.

Sue said...

I should have know but had forgotten that song!!
Card looks great either way but now you have told me , it has to be the first :D Lovely colours.

I prefer the second version. I think I prefer it because I live 'downhill' from the mountains and if I drive in certain places, I can see the Rockies in the distance. The rope line is like the horizon.
I love your work and follow your blog for a year now!

either way looks great Dan and guess it was me that started the which way it should go xx but you know I can never make up my mind

Gorgeous card and love the colours :)

misteejay said...

Oh, of course it's the 'Pushbike song' (by the Mixtures) how could I not have remembered that...I used to do a routine to it at stage-school...doh!

Toni :o)

Laura said...

Yup I am over the hill and I think I agree with you. The first direction is by far the best. It is extraordinary that by turning it 90 degrees it looks different. Great make.

Nothing wrong with the second picture, but I like the first one too. Great card. The song? Pushbike song.... was it Mungo Jerry? Jude.x

StampDancer said...

Absolutely love this - I like the first way best. Great card!

Claireliz said...
