Hubby's Birthday

Morning everyone! How are we all today??

Todays card is for hubbys birthday tomorrow. I didn't have any male images grown up enough for him so decided to go on the hunt for digi images. I found this fabulous Mikey from Carmed Crafts andI think he fits the bill perfectly. He kinda reminds me of hubby when we first met..he had bleached blond floppy hair! Nowadays it is the more traditional short back and sides!

He is coloured with prismas. He originally had grey trainers which blended in quite well and in a spur of the moment decision I decided the image needed a flash of colour so changed his trainers to red. I just wish I had kept them gey!! Too late now!

The papers are from Basic Grey 'Granola' collection and the screw brads are from e-bay. That fab jute is from Nikki's new on-line shop, Bunny- Zoe Crafts. Fab servive Nikki! Thank you!!

Have a great day...whatever you are up to..

Fantastic card, Judy! Your colouring is fantastic. I think the flash of colour works pretty well to be honest. :)

This card is stunning. Your colouring is amazing. Love the image. Can I ask a stupid question? What do you get with the downloaded images? Can you print them as many times as you want, or do you just get 1 copy of each image? I'm a bit confused with the wording on Charmed Cards & Crafts.
