Penny Farthing – Love this die!!

I just really had to have a play as soon as this Penny Farthing Die arrived. So many memories associatd with this bike style. No, not quite that old but……….I do remember watching Hay’s procession as a child in the centre of Christchurch, NZ at Christmas time and then got to be a part of the procession as a bride doll on the Doll Shop float. Penny farthing riders cycled in and out of the spaces around the floats. Such fun!!

Then there is the Canterbury museum and the Transport Museum at Ferrymead where you get to see these lovely old bikes. So many other places………….memories!!

I’ll keep creating with this one and add to this section. Love to see your ideas.

I made this first card for my mum’s 79 birthday. I love the white on white theme that is so popular at the moment. I’ll list the products I used at the bottom of this post when I get a chance.
