26th Anniversary Card

I had made a card for our anniversary-but decided it was way too girly.  I chose an Artistic Impression"His and Hers Flying High".  I used the current Mojo Monday Challenge.  The beautiful red ribbon is Red Hot Love by DL.ART.  To make the bow more masculine I added a bronze brad and cut the loops of the bow.

FLYING DOG

Janis from Pause Dream and Enjoy has a new sketch blog-PAPER PLAY SKETCHES.  Here is my take on the first sketch.  The image I used is Artistic Impressions "His and Hers Flying High".  I stamped the image on Canson Watercolor paper with Stayz On ink.  I colored in the image using a paintbrush and watered down Marvy markers.  I then colored some light clouds around the image and cut it out with a circle die by My Creative time.  I used My Minds Eye "Handsome Boy" papers.

KEY TROUBLE

I have a funny story.  A few weeks ago my key wasn't working in the ignition.  So I had to use the valet key.  I had dropped it in the parking lot while I was in the store.  So i thought something had bent the tip of the key.  Yesterday my son wanted to drive my car.  I told him to use the valet key.  He looked at the damaged one and said "I can fix this What is this in the groove? "  It was a rhinestone from a card I had made.
I packaged the valentine pocket letters in these cute bags I made using the Frozen cartridge.
I am entering this into Karen's Show it off Saturday at LITTLE SCRAP PIECES
