I finally made it to the teaparty and have used colours from this weeks colour challenge - well close as I could get. (black, coral and baja breeze - neutrals of choice)
For this weeks teaparty we were asked to bring anything British: London Bridge, English gardens, tea, crumpets, fancy hats, castles, or Beatles but if you bring Mamas in pajamas it's the back door for you.
We are sending some snail mail cheer to Pat in Margate, FL.
Here is some information on the bicycle - The Penny Farthing is also referred to as the "High" or "Ordinary" bicycle, and the first one was invented in 1871 by British engineer, James Starley. The Penny Farthing came after the development of the French "Velocipede", and other versions of early bikes. However, the Penny Farthing was the first really efficient bicycle, consisting of a small rear wheel and large front wheel pivoting on a simple tubular frame with tires of rubber.

What a cool card! I love those bicycles and always thought it would so cool to actually ride one, although I would most likely fall on my ear :)
