He was sick with a cold last week and it hung on and moved to his sinuses and infection set in. He is on an antibiotic now.
He went to school after the doctor visit. I don't know if that was his idea like he claimed or my daughter-in-law sent him. He will be fine in a few days once the antibiotic does its thing.
Then we had bible study at church last night and when I came home I was just worn out. So I went to bed early.
sketch challenge #374 on Splitcoaststampers. Holly was our hostess and she provided a great layout to work with. When I looked at the sketch I thought the layout would be perfect for a masculine card. You know the guys don't like frilly and fussy.
My wolf image and happy birthday sentiment are from the Marks Finest Papers set "north american woods". I stamped it in chocolate chip ink. I colored only his eyes with prismacolor pencils. I love the dramatic look with the green eyes.
The designer paper on the rectangle layers is from Stampin-Up's "pawsitively prints" collection. I layered it on pear pizzazz paper. I won this paper over on Ann Schach's blog a month ago. This pattern is so perfect for a guy card.
I wanted a sentiment on this card so I stamped the happy birthday and used a Spellbinders ribbon tag die to cut it out. I used a piece of May Arts chocolate ribbon on the die.
Oh yes, I entered this card over at Scrap-Creations. They had a critter challenge and my card was picked as one of the top 3. Whoo-hoo!!
Well that's it for me today so until next time........God Bless
Some other challenges:
1. Creative Craft challenges has a "boys will be boys" challenge.
2. Here Come The Boys has a vintage feel challenge. I thought my dp has a vintage/retro look to it. As well as my wolf image.
3. Scrappy Frogs Blog has a die cut challenge. I used my oval die and a ribbon tag die.
4. 2 Sisters Blog has an anything goes challenge.
