SENTIMENTAL SUNDAYS...FOR A SPECIAL GUY

LIVE YOUR LIFE....IN COLOR!

Sentimental Sundays picked a goodie this week, with Father's Day coming up.  But some of us don't have Father's to give cards to, so we do "a guys card" anyway.

It got me thinking.  Why do guys cards always have to be so rough and tough and tumble.  Guys can be given chocolates, and flowers and all kinds of pretty stuff by us...and why not?  It isn't only we women that can benefit from the lovelies in this world...our guys are being left out!

So for my "special guys card" I made "a pretty."

I hope you enjoy it! 

And remember to go over to SENTIMENTAL SUNDAYS and enter YOUR card for great GIFTIES!!!


I found this very cool fabric (the background color) in Walmart.




You will see over at SENTIMENTAL SUNDAYS that we are actually following a sketch this week




I just LOVE these peacock feather tails!  And of course, my fav colors.




But believe it or not, instead of using my beloved copics, I used watercolor paper and watercolors, my new medium for the multi-media courses I am taking with a few of the Sentimental Sunday's Teamies.  I sure hope "you" like color!

And that you too can picture this as a "Pretty" for Father's Day.

I have a rough and tumble card, but it is for another challenge.  I will give you a sneak peek, just for those of you who are choking at the thought of this for a man.  Get ready!

This is definately rough and tough and tumble!

Sneek Peek Only!


haha - enjoy the itsy preview!
