But a birthday card for Tony turned out to be a bit tricky. He's all guy - loves his truck and working on cars, and he's found his passion in welding school. (Let me tell folks, if you have any young men struggling to find a future - welding is a darn good profession to look into). Turns out I only have cutesy boy stuff and some very outdated-looking man stuff - so I went graphic.
In the meantime, I had dropped some Copics behind my stamp drawers and had to dismantle the shelves to find them and lo and behold, there were six stamp sets hiding back there. I didn't even I was missing any. Sad, huh? One set was these graphic circles - I bet they've been back there five years or more!
I sat down to do this card right after I had browsed last week's Freshly Made Sketches gallery so it was on my brain. I had already done two cards and decided one more wouldn't hurt!
