Another masculine card for August for my son who believes that beer is a main food group. I saw this card by kiagc and knew I'd love to do this one. I dead ended finding the image and she was kind enough to send me a copy. The keg is printed on wood veneer making it easy to color by sponging with distress inks. Lucky me that it fed through the printer. Colored the glass, used Glossy Accents. I misquoted Ben Frankin. It should have read "Beer is proof that God loves us and wants us
to be happy." After a certain age, never work from memory. Paper piecing was my technique of choice

A cute card and your son will really get a kick out of it.
Reminds me of a friend who always said, 'the four major food groups were 'caffeine, alcohol, sugar and fat'. And who doesn't like those? You have posted some great cards today!

Nancy, I LOVE this card! I've faved it for inspiration since both my DH and DS make "home brew"(must be pretty good since friends are always requesting they bring some. I'm not a beer drinker so I don't know about its quality.) They know that BF quote. Love how you have the keg as well as the mug....and your coloring is spot on.
