Encouragement for a Triathlon: Biking

One of my best friends is training for her first triathalon.  She is training with 'Team in Training' and is competing to honor her brother, who recently won his battle with lymphoma.  You can find out more here.  

This is the second in a series of cards I am sending her.  The first card was to encourage her for her 10k run.  This card is to encourage her for the 40k bike ride.  The last card will be to honor her 1.5 k ocean swim.

Here is the card I made for her:

One of the interests she and I share is reading, so I made her a matching bookmark to use during those spare moments when she is not training.

Supplies Used:
Stamps:  Everyday Button Bits, All Star Team Additions, Polka Dot Basics II
Paper:  PTI:  Orange Zest, Ocean Tides, Road Trip, Fine Linen
Other:  PTI Button Die, Limitless Layers Die, Numbers Impression Plate, Quickuts Scallop Border die, SU Owl Punch, button, ribbon 

Thanks for Visiting


  1. Love your card and bookmark. I love your color combo. I remember your first card. Can't wait to see the next one.

  2. Oh, this is so perfect, Joyce! I'm sure your friend really appreciates your support and encouragement!
    And that bookmark is ADORABLE!! I love it!

  3. I love that you made her biking encouragement an actual bike. Very good idea, love that owl bookmark too. I like the scoring around the bike on the card, adds a little extra something to the whole card.

  4. Great card...love the bike, the sentiment and the colors are just wonderful. What a sweet friend you are to be so supportive and encouraging.

  5. LOVE it!!
    I think it's a super fabby card and fits the occasion perfectly!
    Good luck to her...and bravo for having the courage to do it!!
    I admire anyone with that kind of determination!
    And she'll enjoy the bookmark after that bike ride...
    when she's resting before taking on the next challenge! :)

  6. Love this card and the book mark is adorable too. I also have that punch and love it. I have a different bike one though.
