Mo's Challenge #101 - Autumn colours :-)

Good morning!  Just a really quick post before I head to bed for a bit of a nap as I worked night shift last night.  It's my hubby's birthday on Tuesday so I've made him a card (not that he gets particularly excited about his cards lol).  This morning was the only chance I was going to get so I made a cuppa and got busy.  I've used Mo's 'fishing' digital stamp.  My husband actually watched me colour this in yesterday... so the image won't even be a surprise, but oh well, it's the thought that counts :-)  Anyway, here it is --->

As you can see it's quite basic, but I'm running a bit short on time :-/  I'm happy with how it turned out all the same :-)  Do you like my water???  OMG!  I was a little daunted to begin with... but I kind of just kept adding colour until I was happyish... it definitely looks better from a distance LOL.  I'm going to enter this into the weekly challenge at Mo's Challenge Blog as it seems to fit well with the Autumn colour theme.  You can check out everyone else's beautiful work, including the design team's examples here!  Well that's it from me... I better get some sleep before Darren and the boys get home and before Grandpa gets here to join us for our roast dinner... YUM!  Thanks for stopping by xoxox


  1. Hi can craft after working night shift? You're good! I can barely WALK after working nights...let alone color and be creative! hehehe! Your card is the perfect "guy" card...does your hubby fish? Your coloring is gorgeous, m'dear! And your water is amaaaazing! I love the sentiment...and the twine is the perfect touch! Thanks so much for joining us this week at Mo's!! Hugs. Pat Frank

  2. I love this image for a guy's card, and your coloring is great! Love the leaves and berries, too! Glad you joined us in Mo's Challenge.

  3. Hi Kerri! I think this is one perfect card for a man! Men's cards don't quite require embellies and I guess the focus should be on image. You've chosen a great Mo image and your coloringv on this is great! Happy birthday to your hubby! Make sure he keeps this:) Mine doesn't care that much about cards either:)
    have a great day sweetie and thanks for joining us at Mo's this week!
    Hugs, Iulia
