Ladies Ink Challenge Sketch & Happy Birthday Honey!


Oh my goodness... Christyne... our *Challenge* girl in our Ladies, Ink Blogger group just will not let us have any easy one.
This time around (last time was the 3D challenge) we had to create our OWN sketch (WHATEVER!!... I am the queen of copying sketches not creating them myself) and then we will be creating cards based off of everyone's else's sketch (that's the fun part- new sketches for me to put in my book and lots of cards I'll need for the fall).
Since I don't use Photoshop or anything like it, this was my best shot and it still didn't come out right. So, ladies make note... *** THE RED RECTANGLE SHOULD GO ACROSS THE ENTIRE LENGTH OF THE CARD*** just look at my example :-)...
And on to my example!
Today is my sweet husband's birthday!! He loves manly cards (he's a man's man for sure!) and he loves that first cup of coffee in the morning (and even one late in the evening, too).
I just wanted to make a card he could look at and kind of enjoy!
Hope you do!
Enjoy!
Kristin
