May Blast From The Past!!!

It's that time again - Taylored Expressions Blast From The Past blog hop.  This month's hop challenge is to make a masculine card with no glitz, glitter or flowers.  I decided to use Taylored Expressions In The Park stamp set and focused on first time dads. 

I love that quote by Lance Armstrong.  Every new dad is nervous about holding their infant child for the first time even though they are filled with wonder and awe at the little bundle in their arms.  Mistakes will be made along the way while their child grows up, however, dad will learn from them and be a better dad for it too.  It's just like riding a bike.  If you never get on a bike, you won't have the risk of falling off.  If you fall, just get back on the bike and continue riding.   

There's lots of eye candy for you to see today.  Make sure you stop by each of the participating hoppers and leave them some love.

Thanks for stopping by.  Have a great day.
