He's an Ironman.
Four times an Ironman.
And he's going for number five this September.
Now, triathlon involves three sports: swimming, biking, and running. But by far my husband's favorite event is the bike. He loves the bike. It's his strongest event. He zens out on the 2.4-mile swim, makes great time on the 112-mile bike, and then usually loses the will to live somewhere between miles 18 and 22 on the 26.2-mile run.
So of course his birthday card needs to bicycle themed, and ever since Hero Arts came out with its bicycle set, bike cards are easy! Thank you, Hero Arts!
Combine that cool bike set with a tri-panel card, and my honey will love his birthday card!

I once saw a t-shirt on a woman near the finish line of an Ironman race. It said, "Just Tri-ing to Understand."
But it sure is fun cheering him on and picking him up at the medical tent after he gets his post-race IV fluids.
Note: I attached the third panel, which measured 5.5" x 4.75", with a 1/2" flap scored on one side. You can see pretty clearly in the second photo how it is attached since I didn't quite line it up perfectly. I'll do better next time, but as my hubby always says, this is definitely good enough for government work.
