It’s a Mans World

We’ve always joked in the house about Chris(long suffering husband) presuming the position (to sleep) on the sofa whilst watching TV, even when asleep he’s still in charge of the TV remote control. No matter how carefully you peel back each finger to get it out of his hand he always raises one eye.

I got Jim Harker to sketch this one up for Just Inklined as I thought it would be perfect for Fathers Day and Birthdays. It’s a Mans World from Just Inklined

Coloured with Copic markers and teamed with designer papers.

The only thing we are missing in this house is the dog.

Button and ribbon from Fantastic Ribbons 

I’m going today to have my nails redone as I told you I wasn’t overly pleased with the result last week. I’m getting Bio Sculpture gel nails which should allow my own to grow better without the horrible glue you get with acrylic nails.

Great image and beautiful ribbon - something I struggle to add to a man's card but this is just perfect. You've inspired me to start my own Fathers Days cards. xx

brilliant stamp Jak - perfect for the majority... however, in our house, my eldest son seems to take charge of the remote. Evertime he moves whether to go to the bathroom, get a drink or whatever, he puts it on pause so the rest of us have to view a still screen whilst he gets sorted.... He's usually got his netbook on the chair arm too (multi-tasking)lol.

Love the way you've laid out the card and the ribbon with the key is very classy.

Hugs
