a special card

Happy Valentine’s Day!  I hope you had a nice, relaxing day.  I got a little crafting time in this afternoon and DH and I went out for a light dinner so it was a fun day.  I have still been so busy lately trying to play “catch-up” so I don’t have any projects I made to share today.  I do have some to share later but the card I have here today was made by someone else…

A few days ago I celebrated another birthday.  And DH kept asking me to get out some supplies so he could make me a card.  Say what??  He has never made a card before, let alone showing any intent to do so!  LOL.  And I kept thinking…this is going to be like the school projects the kids had to do when they were little…ha ha.  You know how that story goes.  But eventually I gave in and went to find some supplies.  I quickly found a card kit that was received from the  Buffalo Stamps & Stuff store and it was perfect for him to use.  It even included a die cut border.  Great!  Now here’s part of the conversation that followed:

DH: Do you have something to cut a vase and flowers?  (wanting to use the diecut machine and just cut/paste/be done)

me: ummm…flowers, yes…a vase, no  (mentally adding a vase to my wish list ’cause a girl’s got to have everything, ya know?)  But I have stamps with flowers and vases…

DH:  Uhhh…that would mean I’d have to color, right?

me:  (laughing at this point)…uhhhh….yeahhhh.

DH:  ok.  (not sure what he’s thinking but I think there was a big sigh in there somewhere. lol.)

So he cuts the paper, he stamps and he glues and I even trust him with my Copics (gritting teeth).  I comment on how much glue he’s using and he says he must be used to glueing his airplanes.  LOL.  Trust me…this card aint gonna fall apart. 

And so here it is….he did an awesome job, dontcha think?  I don’t think I’ll convert him to my hobby though…he quickly disappeared back to the basement to work on his plane.  ;^)

Thanks, hun….I ♥ it!
