Hello!! I promised to be back today with the hubby’s birthday card, and that is one promise I can keep! Ha! I have had the hardest time making something for my hubby in a while. I just don’t think anything is good enough or will relate to him in the way I want. I literally made this for him on the morning of his birthday…I sent him off to work with no card and no present! Poor guy! lol
This is the Backyard General from Saturated Canary. I bought him because of this picture of my son
and this too
Hubby served in the Army back in the 80’s, so everything for my son is Army and guns and grenades, etc. He idolizes his dad! And I love that. He is also the perpetual man child…in fact, we’re getting ready to head to the skate park, more because hubby wants to than anything else!
Yesterday I posted a card that took me 8 minutes and 37 seconds to finish. This one took me more like 2 hours 30 minutes! Part of that is because I was searching the net for pics of how to color camo. Ha! This uses the August Sketch for You to Try. Here’s a little close up of the coloring
The camo was super easy! I just shaded the jacket like normal and then added some squiggles with a dark brown and a couple darker olive-y greens.
This completely depicts my son. No matter what he’s wearing, he almost always has some camo on somewhere! Also, we had to make a rule that no more sticks come in the house…if they’re gun sticks, put them on top of the hot tub or something so the dogs don’t chew them, but they stay outside! lol
I still think this card is a bit kiddish to give to my hubby, but he liked it anyway! Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you all are having a wonderful week! :o) lyss
