Sweet Sketch Wednesday Sketch #141

DigiStamp Boutique

Hi everyone today is 15 February the day after Valentine's Day and I thought I would make my dear hubby a Masculine Valentine's Card and by looking at my masculine card you can see that I completely lost my Mojo.  I had plans to try different colours this year and I love seeing other artists using Pink and Chocolate together and their cards always turn out so pretty.  Pink and Brown are really not my colours and the funny thing is they are two colours together that I definitely wouldn't wear in the way of clothing either.   But isn't this such a cute image from DigiStamp Boutique there is a set of them call 
"The Prickles" there's Ma, Pa and Benson very cute.

Re our rules at Sweet Sketch Wednesday.  We would love you to use our sponsors images but if you don't have one you can use what you have on your crafting table.  If you are unsure go to Sweet Sketch Wednesday and check out our rules.

Well I think these colors work fabulously on your card Kathie! This is a terrific male Valentine card and your coloring of that so, so cute image is impecable! Make me just feel all those pricklies on this cute hedgehog. I also love the sentiments in the tiny squares along the side. Perfectly done! Wishing you a terrific week ahead!

Good morning Kathie, glad to see your computer problems seem to be better, that is so frustrating (and we have all been there). Funny how we all love different colors, I love your pink and browns and especially the way you used the side squares...just gorgeous. Hope you have a fantastic week,hugs....

This is just adorable!
Great coloring and texturing the little hedgehog. Love the sayings in the squares, they look like they are made of brass. Have a great day.
Hugs, Heide

Oh Kathie, you haven't lost your mojo...I love chocolate and pink together. I especially love the little sentiments you have used with the big chocolate bow. It is gorgeous. Super cute image. I am sure you Husband loved it. Have a wonderful week.

Absolutely darling Kathie!! Love the way you colored your little hedgie! Pinks and browns are beautiful - you did a great job with 'em too for not being your comfort colors. Have a wonderful rest of the week.

Jeannie said...

I'm quite sure your hubby loved this! I would never wear these colors together either, but they sure do make adorable cards! I don't think you lost your mojo at all on this one - it's just adorable!

Peace & Luv,
