HUBBY Birthday!

My husband is 39 today :)
He usually tries to book the day off work for his birthday, but was unable to this year :(
My hubby doesn't like a lot of fuss (he prefers to fuss over me!)
so I asked 'do you want to go out for a meal for your birthday?'
Nope, he wants to stay at home, so i'll be cooking him a mixed grill instead.
He's in Wales today (he left at 4.30 this morning) and he might be later getting home too (around 7pm), so I can't really blame him for wanting to stay in, have a meal, have a drink or 2 then snooze in front of the telly.

Here's the card that I have made for him...

sorry that the pic isn't too good, it's very dull here today.

The cardstock, beer stamp, balloon stamp, and sentiment are all SU
The paper is by Provocraft (had it when I had a cricut machine)
The 'hubby' is chipboard letters, I covered them in glue and added glitter but it's hard to see in the pic.

I'm going to enter this into the challenge at Charisma Cardz, this week the theme is birthdays and celebrations.
I already entered the challenge with the 21st birthday card I made (below) but we are allowed to enter upto 3 times, so here goes :)


  1. Happy Birthday Dave! Poor him, all that driving, but he'll enjoy his mixed grill. I love this card, all the elements are great. I had to look really closely at the paper as I thought it was tiles you'd stuck on! The things we do for luuuuurve! xxx
