Apples and Pears!

A Card for My Husband

When I saw this image on this coloring book site I knew it would make the perfect Valentine's Day card for my husband of almost 44 years!
I colored it with Copics and drew in the designs by hand. The argyle DP is by Basic Grey, the white is PTI, and the SU! card stock is Kiwi Kiss and a retired color called Rose Romance, which picks up the touch of rose in the DP. The epoxy heart stickers are from my stash and were just the right color.
The sentiment is computer-generated. It continues on the inside, "...I guess we're stuck with each other! Happy Valentine's Day!"
You're probably wondering what the apples and pears in the title and picture have to do with this. Well, the snakes reminded me of one of my husband's frequent comments. Whenever the subject of Adam & Eve comes up, he likes to joke that, "It wasn't the apple in the tree that started all the was the pair on the ground!"
