You Are So Very Very Special

Yesterday was my dear husband's birthday, so I was up 'til silly o'clock on Wednesday evening beavering away to get his card done ... I seem somehow to have got really behind with everything recently, but despite the late hour when I finished this one (12:45 am, with work the next morning!!) I'm actually pretty pleased with it - here it is.

Yet again I have used an adorable LotV bear ... I can't get enough of them! This cute little guy has been in my stash since last year, so I though that despite the awful weather, now was the right time for him to go for a little drive with the top down lol!

 Stamps: LotV "Mini Bear"; sentiments from LotV "Everyday "Grungy Messages" set;
Media: Promarkers and Flexmarkers;
Papers: LotV "Nitwits - Petal Fresh" (another purchase from my trip to Farsley!! :-) )
Supplies: Jute ribbon and twine from The Ribbon Girl; wooden heart buttons from my stash;
Tools: large and lacy circle nestabilities; Stephanie Weightman alphabet die set (from Hobbycraft).
