MOJO89 - I did it!

Will you look at that!?! I got a Monday Mojo Sketch done in time to link my Card! WOOHOO!!!

I made this card for my hubby's birthday, which is in a few days. I know he'll be super happy, if only because I finally made him a card! Normally I get all stressed and he never gets a card. But, this year I was thinking ahead. I bought him some new t-shirts last week and hid them really the linen closet. They've been there all week just sitting in the bag and he hasn't even noticed. LOL!

Anyway, about the card. I really liked this sketch, and it fit so well with my theme. I was super happy to use one of my CTMH Acrylix Stamps for the sentiment...I just lined it up and then looked at through my clear stamping block and adjusted the angle until it was just right. The image I got from one of the many swaps that I am in at SCS...I think this one came from the Canadian Express Swap. I coloured it with my copics...and I picked my colours using my colour chart before I started colouring, and I love how it turned out.

Thanks for looking.
