My husband recently built an outhouse for his hunting property. While working on it in the driveway neighbors became curious. He told them we quit paying our sewage and water bill. So I just had to do this image. The background was paper pieced with scraps and the image was colored with pencil and copics. A bit of wire was wrapped around the post and a bit of pan pastels was used for the ground. How fun this was and so is this challenge with so many guys in the family. I made up the sentiment and the inside reads "including a happy life for you and me."

Nancy, this is a TERRIFIC card for your DH. Bet your neighbors blanched when they heard your explanation of your husband's "project". Your coloring, as always, is impeccable! You gave me a good smile. Thanks!
