Birthday card for hubby

It's probably a little risky posting Tom's birthday card here before I actually give it to him on Tuesday, but I don't think he checks my blog out very often... So, I'm hoping I'm not blowing it - LOL. When I bought this Mo Manning stamp I knew it would soon become one of my "go to" images... It has such a great feel to it and is fairly versatile. I feel so lucky to have this wonderful man to grow old with. This month we will have been married for 22 years, and each and every day I feel blessed and amazed to have him in my life. I hope he realizes how much I love him.

I kept the card fairly simple as I normally end up doing with my "man" cards. I liked the sketch at Create 4 Fun, so it became my starting point. Then I basically just let the stamp and coloring speak for themselves... I added the typed sentiment to complete it.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Sentimental Sundays - For the Men in your life + sentiment

Create4Fun Challenge - July - Sketch

Pile it On - #29 - Life is a Picnic

Enjoy your week!
