Have Wheels, Will Travel

It's a man theme today.  The challenge at A Blog Named Hero is to make a card for the man or boy in your life:

The challenge at Simon Says is MASCULINE / FATHER'S DAY

The cue word at CASology is wheels:

And I've used this fabulous colour scheme from ColourQ:

Went to a fabulous event in our village last night - Music in the Woods.  Bring your own gazebo, chairs, picnic, wine, etc.  Live music, fairy lights strung through the trees, dancing on the grass, warm weather - fantastic!

I'm going back out in the garden to play, as it's another warm and sunny day.  At this rate, we'll be on a hosepipe ban by next month! (That's despite being knee-deep in flood water last September!)
