Hubby Made Me a Card!!


Hey there peeps!! Do I have a treat for you today. I celebrated my birthday recently and my guy made me a card!! With no help from me, he did this all on his own and I think he did such a GREAT job!!!


Isn't it cute!!! Look at the techniques he used that he didn't even know were techniques!! He used selective inking on the bunny, there are four on the stamp. He paper pieced that flower pot, yup my guy was a fussy cutter!! The flowers are one stamp stamped three times. Pretty good placement huh. 

Hind sight, he says, the button was a mistake. He meant for it to be the sun, but decided later that it was lacking rays. He didn't want to go back to add them in, he thought he would mess up his work!! When I showed him this post he cringed at his button again!! Oh yeah...this one is special...I do love him so!!!

Our son was his critic telling him his color choices could have been a bit better! Hey, it took him an hour and a half. He also told him that he's gonna be in hot water with the other husbands who will be asked why they don't make birthday cards LOL!!! Oh the pressure!!!

I know he's anxious for comments. Shhhh, don't tell him I told you!! ~Lisa

That is precious. Please tell him the button sun was perfect. I think you have a keeper...card and husband. (You probably already decided that.)

I think this is the sweetest card EVER!! He did an awesome job...and now your son the critic will need to step up to the plate and make one as well!!! Treasure that one forever!

I LOVE this card!! I took up paper-crafting about 5 years ago and my stuff never looks this good!! If your husband keeps this up, we are going to start wanting to see a few technique videos from him---even if he doesn't know what the techniques are!! lol

Well, regardless, you have a keeper no matter how it would have turned out just for the beauty in expression for wanting to do something so meaningful for you. Now, this looks better than 90% who go to a card/stamp workshop for the first time!!!! Amazing job!

Sue Lelli said...

Lucky girl! Sweet man! Love his colors and how thoughtful he is!

Kim S said...

I can't decide if you are lucky because you have a man who will share your interests. Or whether you are unlucky because you might find him in your crafting space using your crafting supplies more than you might like!! He did well!
