Best Friends

It's finally Friday!  Yay!  This has been a very long and busy week for me and I'm really looking forward to relaxing this weekend.  All my shopping is done and I only have a few more gifts to wrap.  I'm usually finishing up my wrapping on Christmas Eve so I'm way ahead of the game this year.  Of course it didn't hurt that I let dear hubby do lots of the wrapping :-)

So my card today isn't a Christmas card ... I know, can you believe it?  It felt so weird not to be reaching for some Christmas dp lol!  I've had this cute little image for awhile now and I finally decided to get him inky.  This stamp is Worried and you can find it at Funky Kits.  I colored them with copics and colored pencils.  If you follow my blog then you know I have a really hard time choosing embellishments for male cards.  I think I'm always afraid I'm going to make them too 'girly' lol!  So I opted for a few buttons and a diecut in the corner.  A clean and simple look that lets the image be the focus.

Thank you for stopping by.  I hope you have a fabulous day and a wonderful weekend!

Hugs, Anita
