Not really a big thing in my house. Darren doesnt get me a card and I dont expect one. This year in April we have been married for 9 years and together for 20!! So I have during the 20 years got used to the fact that my hubby isnt a romantic type. But thats OK, thats him, he was like that when I met him and I love him all the same ;0) this doesnt stop of me of course making him a card and sometimes buying him a little something, usually Chocolate!
Here is the card I made him, he has been banned from reading my blog this week encase I showed off his card, he is a blog stalker you know, he is always reading my posts! Makes me a little nervous sometimes I can tell ya (I am SURE you know why) Anyway... I used one of the lovely Stampendous Fluffles stamps... this is such fun to colour and I coloured my cats in Ginger for Darren and Brown for me! I used my SU inkpads to colour this in and used all one colour family which was Earth Elements. It doesnt have to cost the earth to colour with the inkpads as you can buy the Stampin' Spots now which are 1" square inkpads and for a set of 12 its £17.50 they are perfect for colouring with too, take the lid off press the colour onto a tile or plate and use with a waterbrush as a palette. perfect! The white embossed hearts are the hearts from the Sale-a-bration Polka Dot Punches set and the sentiment is one I have had for years. I used my Nestie Labels one dies (YEAH AT LAST) and the papers are SU.
I am off to the Glitter Pot today for 2 classes, should be fun, one layer cards and Lots of Layers and my Mum is coming with me so that will be nice ;0)
