One of Hubby's birthday card.

Hi everyone this is my 2nd post today! I survived the grandchildren. We had fun with my clay today. It's great to see them and great to have peace restored lol!
I have made a simple card for my hubby, it's his birthday on Wednesday!
We have two cats a black & white one who is 19 in May. You would never think so to look at her. Apart from being deaf she is great.
Our other cat adopted us almost 2 years ago and the way things are going we are going to end up with a neighbours cat.
 My granddaughter was told they have got another cat and don't want that one any more. So we are feeding it and haven't got the heart to put it out when the weather is bad. 
Some people should not be allowed animals. It makes me so angry.
Enough said.
They are both digital images I can't remember who created them.
I coloured with a mixture of watercolour pencils & PM.
The sentiment stamp is part of  a Woodware Friend set. Glossy accents.
Less is more "Masculine"
