Monika's making a splash

What can you do for a man's card? Seriously? They're not easy are they? Mostly they don't like "cute".

Thankfully my man personally selected most of my House Mouse stamps himself (and I would have a lot more if it was all up to him, which is not something you hear from most crafters!) so I know he doesn't mind that kind of cute. If you had seen him crouching on our bottom lawn for hours at a time trying to encourage a family of 9 squirrels to eat peanuts out of his hand, you'd know the kind of man that he is. He's the kind of man who gets righteously cross with being woken up early on his day off - but a squirrel tapping on the bedroom window wanting its breakfast can get away without being grumbled at. Proof:


I had no qualms at all about choosing this image for his birthday card yesterday (happy birthday sweetheart!) and Basic Grey's Lime Rickey papers were perfect along with the silver stars stickers that Mum gave me a while back. Coloured with Copics and finished with Stickles, chalk ink and silver marker, it's guy enough for my guy.

Charisma Cardz: stars
Cute Card Thursday: circles (half a circle at the bottom plus circles on the paper)
House Mouse: make a splash (I did, literally - I drew the splash myself. LOL)
Simon Says Stamp: anything goes
Truly Scrumptious: sketch
