Birthday Bicycles

There's quite a story behind this card:

Many years ago, when our daughters were just babies, we became very friendly with Roy, the owner of the local greengrocer's shop and his family. One of Roy's passions was pillarboxes, and he used to travel around the country photographing unusual and historic ones. He also loved cycling, a passion that he passed on to his children and grandchildren.

Sadly Roy is no longer with us but we are still friendly with the rest of his family, and his son and granddaughter are about to celebrate very special birthdays with a joint party, so here is the father-and-daughter card I have made for them. The blue bicycle with the 50 sign signifies the father's 50th birthday while the pink bicycle with the 18 sign, the daughter's 18th birthday. And the pillar box is a reminder that it was through Roy that our families became such good friends.

I die cut all the elements using snippets, so naturally I'm heading over to the Playground to share my card.
I'm also sharing with Fab'n'Funky - Shaker card or birthday with a number. I'm rubbish at shaker cards so I'm bringing you TWO numbers instead!
