His First Love

Happy Friday everyone!

I colored up some images this week and thought I would share this one.  It's one of the digi's I won this month from Squigglefly.  My bother-in-law's birthday was yesterday, sorry this is going to be late.
Anyway, he has a truck just like this one!!!  And although he probably doesn't go out to the garage and actually hug his truck he does keep very good care of it.  Covers it even in the garage, it has lots of chrome and is very loud! So he should appreciate this one!  I colored it red just like his. Guy cards are always a challenge for me but this was too easy! Love when that happens. Check out Squigglefly!  They have a lot of great images!

  3. Barb, this is great. Love the image and your story. If he covers it in the garage, he may secretly hug it without people knowing. lol. Guy cards are hard for me as well. Love how you added the chrome looking items.

  4. This was the best card ever for Gary! He really likes it, especially since you have his truck on there. Great job sis!
