Happy Birthday to Me :)

This is my second post of the day. If you're looking for the Pink Cat Studio Digi Release, please scroll down or click here.

How absolutely cool and creative is this?! You can imagine the huge smile I had on my face when I received this! My husband explained that he wanted to create an urban scene and somehow involve my son in making the card. Hubby inked up Guaco the mole and Sprunk the skunk from DoodleFactory's Urban. I hadn't used them yet and didn't even realize that there were two graffiti artists in that set! LOL Hubby asked me, "My Copic colouring is getting better, don't you think?" How cute is that? I told him I was impressed, especially by the shading on the mole, and I really like how he used purple since I don't use that colour too often. ;) I love that he had my son colour in the sentiment as if it's part of the graffiti the two animals spray-painted! Actually, I heard him urging my son to help him the other day when he got home from work. My son wasn't being very cooperative and at first I thought they were just colouring but when I realized what was happening I tried not to look. Heehee. Hubby said it took him a week to make this card. I love it and will treasure it always!

Hi Emily, how gorgeous is that card, yes, you will treasure it forever. I can see your husband has been well trained and it's almost professional colouring from them both, Great fun. Hope you had a lovely day :0) xx

Your hubby has clearly inherited (?) some of your coloring abilities! The Damian-as-graffiti artist is so smart, too! Lucky girl. Hope your birthday is rocking so far!
