Happy Birthday Darling

I'm still taking a bit of a break from DT work and crafting deadlines, but today is my dear husband's birthday so of course I had to make him a card!!

I made another 8" * 8" card - soooo much space to decorate lol - esp. on a man's card which I always tend to make a bit more "clean and simple". Anyhoo here is the result.

Stamps: LotV "Cheers Bear"; See-D "Happy Birthday"; Fizzy Moon "Special Husband";
Media:  Promarkers and Flexmarkers; image and lace distressed with TH "antique linen" distress ink;
Papers: Pink Petticoat (gingham); sei (check);
Supplies: raffia lace and gingham ribbon from Hobbycraft; wooden heart buttons from Crafty Emma's; brown button and twine from my stash.

Anything Goes #62 - Boyz To Men
MAWTT - Cute As A button
Totally Gorjuss # 122 - Anything Goes With A Button
Charisma #9  Ribbon
Lili's Little Fairies - Ribbon & Lace
Totally Papercrafts #107 - My Favourite Things
(LotV teddies, ribbon and of course my husband :-) )
Simon Says Stamp & Show - Anything Goes

That's all for today - on holiday from work today so off now to get ready for a day of fun and relaxation. Thanks for visiting :-)
