Picking Something Fun........

Happy Wednesday everyone or hump-day as we call it in my neck of the woods.  I am writing this before I get ready for work so I have to keep it short!  By the way so far I am loving my job!!!

My brother in law's birthday is in about a week and he is a farmer so I wanted to find an image that kinda reflected that for his card. I came up with this one from Mo's Digital Pencil.

I didn't want to go to overboard with the design since it is for a guy so I colored him in and then glossed the tomatoes, his shoes and the hankie hanging out of his pocket for dimension. Some twine and a trio of buttons basically finished off the front.  My sentiment was stamped with an old Stampin' Up stamp.  I have so many of those that I have had for ages and thought maybe I should start using them a bit.
Inside the card I put this verse:
"I hope you pick something
fun to do today!
You deserve it!!"

Kinda corny but I thought it fit with the image. Well I hope he likes it anyway cuz it comes from my heart!!
