HMFMC#186 MAKE IT MASCULINE

Right! After my near miss last week - again with the "Duhhhhh" - I'm back in the groove and have made a Valentine card for my hubby. He's a keen allotmenteer ("All for one and one for all"; swish, swish, clang, clang etc etc) and we grow a lot of peas but never get to COOK a lot for some reason!? They just taste SO good straight from the pod...slurp!!!

Anway, who could resist this cute little guy, asleep in his pea pod? I coloured the image with my Copics and glossed the peas with Glossy Accents.


I matted and layered with a variety of papers I had in my off-cut box and some gorgeous card from American Crafts and called it job done. The sentiment on the outside of the card is from a fab set by Clearly Besotted and the one on the inside is by Paper Smooches. They just seemed to fit perfectly.


Here's the inside



Hope you like it.

There's still time for you to enter this week's challenge, though you'll have to get a move on as there are only two days left ;oD. Go on, you know you want to....
