For Julie and Ernie

This is my first entry for the design team for Totally Stampalicious.  I am very excited to have the opportunity to work with this wonderful team. The challenge this week is "Get Your Giggle On."  The image I chose is Gus-Hunter.  He's available here at the Totally Stampalicious store.

As soon as I saw this image I instantly wanted to make it for some friends, Julie and Ernie.  Ernie loves hunting.  He goes away for a couple of weeks during the year to hunt for elk and deer.  This card suits them to a tee.  Julie is indeed patient.  I'll save this until next hunting season and give it to Ernie with a BIG bag of sunflower seeds (his favorite snack to take hunting.).

I showed my husband, a non-hunter, the card.  He doesn't get the humor.  Of well!

I colored this with Copics.  The paper is from Karen Hunter Design.  It's actually a camping paper.  I tried to cover up the obvious references to camping, but don't tell.

Copics:  B0000, C00, C0, C1, C3, C5, 100, E000, E00, E11, E18, E30, E31, E33, E35, E37, G09, G82, G85, G94, R02, R11, R20, YR07, YR09
