No, not mine ! My darling Husband's !!
It only seems like yesterday since we spent his 21st Birthday together and now he has reached the big 4 0 ! Here is a picture of us at his 21st Birthday party ! Don't we look young ?!!!
Celebrations will be low key, he doesn't want a party. Instead I have bought him a "Parrot" for his car and no, it isn't the colourful, loud, squarky type, its a "must have" gadget (apparently !!). We are also going on holiday at the end of August which he really wanted to do as we have not had a proper holiday for some years. He would have loved to have gone to Greece but we can make it as far as Cornwall. If the sun shines and I buy him a pot of olives from Tesco, he can use his imagination, can't he ?!!!!
Here is the card I made him. It was a difficult one to make as he isn't into sport and fast cars and he has heard enough of Tim Holtz lately to last him a lifetime ! so I chose this Hanna stamp as he likes a good barby and not that he is a moose !!!!
The base card is from a pack of Woodware kraft cards and envelopes I bought at Christmas from my local(ish) craft shop.
The DP's are DCWV "The Green Stack"
The image is a Hanna stamp of Riley the Moose. Simon Says Stamp sells these stamps in their store. Riley has been coloured with Prismacolor pencils.
The buttons are BasicGrey.
The sentiment is a Clare Curd sentiment stamped with white Stazon.
The numbers are grungeboard which I have inked with distress inks.
The ribbon is from my stash.
I also decorated the inside and added some slushy writing later !! He loved his card and his Parrot !
Well, must go. I have a busy, busy day ahead.
Thank's for visiting and for your lovely, lovely comments. They mean so much to me and give me such a boost when I read them.
Take care and have a great weekend. Hopefully I will be able to get down to some crafting this weekend and make the most of having my DH at home for the next few days.
