Birthday Boat


I made this for my DH - his birthday is next week. One of our favorite activities is to spend about an hour each day (weather permitting) on our boat slowly cruising around the lake to catch up on our day. It is "our time" and we treasure it.


The image is from GKD. I colored them with my wonderful Copics. I used some Sakura pens to color the dragonfly and give it some shimmer. Can't really bling up a man's card too much. :-) The sketch is from JUGS.


Thanks for stopping by and for leaving a comment!

Lovely card, thanks for sharing. Unfortunately as it is not a tag it will not be able to be entered into the draw at Try it on Tuesday as it is tag week. Lovely to see it though.
