Happy Birthday, my dear husband!

First off: I would like to thank Ivonne for keeping up with the blog posting such beautiful and incredible creations! I'm in awe of everything she makes, from the coloring of her images to the amazing details she adds to her designs. I am so proud to be her partner in this blog and her soul sister in this life. Thank you for keeping the blog up and running when I've been sick and not being able to post anything.

I created this card for my loving husband, Michael. His birthday was this month and I wanted to make a card with a copic colored image for him vs just a masculine sentiment card for him. I was talking to Ivonne over the phone looking for images when we found this one,  and it was like Bingo! Usually on Friday nights he grabs a beer and falls asleep on the couch... The poor thing! It doesn't bother me since he works nights and come Friday night I'm also so tired from getting up very early in the morning to take our son to school, then head to work and after dinner I also fall asleep on the couch. What a couple we make, that's love right there! He, he, he...
