Happy Birthday Doug ~

My hubby's birthday is tomorrow.  He's 10 years older than me, so I always have to give him crap.  This sentiment is from the Arrgh! Piratey set by The Cat's Pajamas.  I'm pretty sure I've stated this on the bloggo before, but my guy is also a biker - as in he rides a Harley, a dirt bike, and if he didn't have a family, he'd be in one of those biker gangs like the Hells Angels.  I have a HUGE thing for pirates, so I always call him my modern day pirate...hence the image I chose!
This is Billy Blyth.  He's colored with Copics in my man's fave colors - red and black.  The ground was sponged with Antique Linen distress ink and dotted with E31 and E33 to make it look like sand.  The challenge this week on the Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps blog is distressing.  I distressed the edges of all the paper with my scissors (and promptly found my distressing tool right after I finished! Hmph!) and then inked up the edges with a little Ranger Distress Walnut Stain ink.  The sketch is the challenge on Paper Sundaes this week - love it!  Going in my arsenal of go-to sketches!  And since this is a birthday card, I have to enter it in Craft Your Days Away #26 and Tuesday Throwdown #61.  

Happy Birthday honey!  I love, love, love you!!  Thanks so much for stopping by, friends!  :o) lyss
