On a more positive note, I was pretty pleased with how this came out in the end, and I think that it passes just fine for a masculine card. However, I think that any woman would love a card like this too. I know that I just adore all of the Thomas Kinkade artwork.
I have missed my friends/family over at the Midnight Madness site, so I am entering this card into the MM challenge this week, and I really look forward to hearing from my old DT sisters over there. They are having a huge anniversary celebration over there, and this week, they are having a barbeque and want us to share a favorite of ours about barbeques. I have LOTS of favorites, but since I am lacking pictures, I will share that my favorite place to barbeque is at the lake. We used to do this all the time when I was little, and those are memories that have stayed with me throughout my life. I think that will always be a favorite barbeque place for me. I have to say though, that even without having a picture, my favorite dish for a barbeque is potatoe salad. Wish I didn't love it so, but I do! You should drop by the MM blog and see all the great recipes that the girls have shared over there and then join in on the fun.
I flipped the sketch and took a few liberties with it to make it fit my needs, but I think it is still a nice flair to the sketch. I hope my friends over there agree.
Thanks for sharing some time with me today, and drop me a line if you have a moment. I would love to hear your comments on my card. I could use the reassurance that this card is masculine enough for a 21 year old ...man...
Have a beautiful and blessed day!
