Fastest of Them All

For Christmas my youngest daughter got a card making paper embossing machine thingy. Being the articulate guy that I am, I’m sure there’s an actual name for this contraption but the long and short of it is she can emboss paper and make greeting cards with it. Because she is an Über crafty person she loved this gift. In the days following Christmas she made cards of every shape, size and color. She got so good at making cards that she even started making pop up cards. This is way beyond any skill I would ever hope to have.

I really loved one of the cards that she made for me so I had to share.

Here is the front of the card.


As you can see she cut holes in the front of the card to expose some words. Pretty darn cool.

Here’s the inside of the card in all of its spectacular embossed splendor.


There you go, this card vouches for my veracity in three categories.

Coolest – Notice the argyle to the left. I currently don’t own anything with an argyle on it except for a Garmin water bottle. Maybe that’s a hint that if I get some Argyle I will be the style king.

Nicest – Obviously my smile is a lot larger than anything else on my face. I’ll take that.

Fastest – I loved this one the most including a bike equipped with aero bars.

I’m honored to be the coolest, nicest, and fastest Dad of them all. I know there are a lot of fast cyclists out there that are fathers but according to this card I’m the FASTEST. I'm relieved Mark Cavendish isn't a father. Sorry Lance! Better luck next time.

You're very much a small island off the coast of Scotland?

This beautifully crafty daughter should make some LiveStrong cards as fundraisers! Great job!

I guess my spelling skills were challenging this morning. They are now corrected.

Spelling errors should really be left alone for others to enjoy as well!

I'm glad you posted this so now the rest of the world can now know what those of us who get the privilege of living with you have known all along.

On my second perusal of the card, I noticed that your daughter thoughtfully put a rear fender on your bike to save you from the embarrassing 'skunk stripe.' You have a very thoughtful child!

That is a great card. I have been honored to receive many home-made cards from my daughter also. They are all special.

That's by your daughter. Great. i honestly thought it was the crayon trick. She must be a wise daughter. Hope she becomes a great cyclist like you. And you should buy her a motorbike because her mind is way too fast. But i like. Thanks Mike for the post.
