Hubby has been the "handyman" as of late. We have been renovating our kitchen. Trying to make a silk purse out of a sows ear. We finished putting the trim moldings up tonight. They look terrific.

Today is hubby's birthday but we aren't celebrating until the weekend, so we didn't do much tonight except I did give him his card. He loved it!! He immediately said I needed to post it on my blog! What a great guy he is!! LOL!! So without further ado here is My Handyman's Birthday Card.

The image is from HIGH HOPES and is called Carpenter Ant. He is soooo cute. The sentiment is also from HIGH HOPES. I altered the sentiment by adding the "My". The tools are actually made of metal! I picked them up on one of my shopping spree's to the Buck or Two with my sister - in - law, Chrissy. The screw brads are from Michael's and I picked those up on my last trip to Grand Forks, North Dakota. The image was coloured with my Prisma Markers and my Bic's.

I took a close up of the ant to show you some of the detail. I am pleased with the way he turned out. I am thrilled that there is no limit to the way this guy can be coloured.

The inside has High Hopes Large Single Candle image on the inside left and I used a TAC sentiment along with bits of Martha Stewart to finish off the sentiment. Sorry but I edited out the personal stuff!! LOL!!

Well, I have to run. We are winding down hubby's birthday. I will be making cards tomorrow. I promise to upload at least one and hopefully two cards tomorrow. Thanks for stopping by!!
