This is one of the cards I had made on my girls getaway the other week.
Actually this was the first card I had made that week.
I don't know the name of this stamp as it was one of Debbie's.
One fun thing Debbie and I did was follow the same sketch and sometimes used the same image and/or papers. It was so fun :)
At first I was just going to leave the card like this. But thought it was way to plain...even if it will be going to a man...who we all know, don't get as excited about handmade cards as most women do ;)
But like I said, it was too plain.
So I added some colour with my copic markers and paper pieced his pants.
I just coloured over the pattern paper. Which surprised me on how well the colours went on the pattern paper.
On the original sketch they had put these pen strokes around the image. I really liked how they looked on the original card.
I'm not sure if I love the look on mine, but I don't hate it ;)
Here was our inspiration card by Jeanne Streiff
See how nice her pen marks are.
Here is both Debbie and my cards
Even though we used the same image and sketch, they are still different as we didn't use the same papers or colours :)
Onto My Day:
We left camp early and were home a little after noon.
We then dropped by Ashley's house as she was getting her front steps fixed as they were crumbling.
Wayne's nephew (Ryan Gosling, yes that is his real name, lol) is a brick layer and said he would fix her steps for her.
We also brought her a few little things she could use for her house :)
On our way home, at a red light at the expressway, there was a guy standing at the lights with a sign "Broke, just passing through, anything will help". Then I see him pull out his cell phone to read a message. Seriously....are you kidding me! The truck in front of us gave him a $5.00 bill. Then I find out my friend saw the same guy, in the same spot last week. I guess he wasn't passing through, lol.
I really hate when someone takes advantage of good-hearted people.
I hope you all had a creative Sunday.
I am off to take a hot bath to ease my knees.
