and make sure to go to Stamptacular Sunday Challenge to see what my most talented team-mates created!

I only have 3 stamps with the image of a man on it!  The first image I used for my wedding/anniversary card for last week's challenge, one is a stick figure and the 3rd is the one I used for this creation.  I used stamps from two different SU! sets ("Summer by the Sea" & "Seaside Sketches") to create the scene that included both a boy and  agirl since I plan on giving this to my hubby. 
I'm actually VERY pleased with the results!  The colors are much richer and blended than what shows on the photos but water color pencils do that for some reason.  
I've decided I want a BIGGER set of water color pencils for my birthday.  They aren't as cool as Copics, but I'm poor and I'm getting by without them  :)
