Birthday Boy

March is certainly the month for Birthdays in our family....
.....FIVE to be exact!
Here is the one I made for my husband
But making this card highlighted a problem I have:
a distinct lack of images suitable for men!! 

Jippie yeah - Nellie Snellen
Birthday Messages - Hero Arts
DP - Candles & Cake - LOTV
Pencils - Pablos & Polychromos
ribbon from stash

If like me you stamp a sentiment on to your DP only to find it gets lost in the pattern
Just grab your colouring pencils and shade in the areas that are fighting with your sentiment
in this case I coloured in the white dots.
 You should then find your sentiment much easier to read!!

Thanks for visiting today

All your recent work is lovely Jane but sadly I just can't comment on it all. This little guy is adorable and beautifully coloured but I think I like your sea sprite best of all. Gorgeous colouring! Hugs, Lesley
