Today I have a special card to share with you. My hubby is turning 33 - I think that's right - LOL. He's younger than me...so I like to forget just how young he is! Anyhow, this week at the Tiddly Inks Challenge blog we are having a Monochromatic challenge. This sort of challenge always makes me a bit nervous - as I struggle with papers that are all in the same hue/family. But, I think I pulled it off this week because it totally came from the heart.
Hubby was and is an avid video gamer. Our relationship works great because we both have hobbies that we thoroughly enjoy. I get to craft in the evening when the girls are in bed and hubby gets to enjoy his games. I LOVE the fact that he likes the really good games that have great story lines. These are my favorites to watch and cheer him on with. Many of them have wonderful puzzles that you have to solve too and I'm often saying try this or do that! I've also a many time been inspired by his games. Some are absolutely GORGEOUS. Here's a link with a little sneak peek of one of my favorite games that he's played - at least artistically.
Ok, on to the card then...I colored this adorable image that Christy from Tiddly Inks drew called Gamer. I can just imagine my husband as a child playing video games with his head tilted to the side - much like this image (actually I can still see him in this position today!)
I added some ribbons that match and also added a bit of burlap type fiber. Lastly, I added a few buttons. I think I pulled off a masculine birthday card and I hope it means so much to hubby!
