Mister Old Fart

Hi everybody!  Kathy here with a card to share tonight.
This one is for my husband.  You see, Geena Bea and I are leaving Friday morning for an agility trial in Texas.  My hubby isn't particularly fond of these trips, especially when I go by myself.  It's a 5 hour drive, but we'll stop a couple of times and it won't be so bad.  The furthest we've gone is almost 8 hours, in southern Tennessee.  So I have gotten in the habit of making him a card to leave behind when we travel.

I think this is a fun image from Bugaboo and I printed it out awhile ago, waiting for the right moment to color it up with my Copics.  Tonight was the night!  What's more manly than blue and brown?  DP are Authentique Collection Journey and cs is DCWV and Bazzill.  I used a MArtha Stewart punch on the brown cs edge of the strip, an MFT arrow die, Spellbinders scallop die and EK circle punch.  I used the sketch from Stella Says Stamp.

I am also entering the following challenges:

Die Cuttin' Divas - use brown, must have diecut
Bunny Zoe's Crafts - something blue

Thanks for stopping by!
