Love You...Suprise!

Hi there,

Today I have a quick post and a little card I made for my lovely hubby David. He does so much for Joseph and I, and without his help and support I couldn't do any of what I do. I have to go away alot with work, and he's so understanding and jost gets on with it. I tell him how much I appreciate him all the time, but nothing says it like a card!

It was late at night when I made it, and so I thought I would leave it by his bedside table so he would find it when he woke up for work the following morning {he's ALWAYS in bed before me!}. I had the free papers from Simply Cards and Papercraft on my desk so I thought I would use those.

I added Anita's 3D clear gloss finish to areas on the heart, and around the hand drawn border {I'm really not sure about that border, but you know what happens when it's late...when really you should just leave well alone..} which I coloured in red. The letters are from BasicGrey, which start out their papercrafting life white. I coloured them black then added a glitter pen {which again I wasn't sure about}.

In any case, he got up at 6am, all bleary eyed - and when he saw the card - he said ooo that was worth getting up for. It was nice to see him smile over something simple I had done.

Hope you're all having a great day - go on, do it for someone special in your life and give them a great day too!

This is such a wonderful card, Clare - I love the design, and I'm not surprised hubby was so pleased with it! You've reminded me that it's been a while since I did something like that for my husband - he's an absolute gem too - I feel a 'surprise' card coming on tomorrow! Ah, Back to the Future - I have some great memories of watching those films with my brood when they were younger! Love Sally x
