A Man's Card

I've been really busy lately, and haven't had much time to craft, but now that the kids are on half term, I am hoping to get lots done and maybe even get a few done for emergencies.

Having just checked my calendar I am so behind with making cards, I have sat and made this one tonight, for my OHs Step Mothers Husband. We are always invited to a BBQ to celebrate Brian's birthday (come rain or shine) so having googled some colouring pages, I came across this one, which I thought would be perfect. Whilst cooking the food, he always has a beer in his hand.

This was a fairly easy card to make, just a couple of mats, a piece of DCWV backing paper, and the sentiment was done on the computer.

The image was coloured with pro-markers. I've added glossy accents to the bottle of beer, and glass of water, although it doesn't really show in the photo.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Craft Your Days Away - fathers day/special man
Charisma Cards - Boy Oh Boy
Do It With Digis - It's All About The Boys
Samuel Taylors - For a Man/Boy
