Happy Birthday, Baby!!

Good morning!! Happy Groundhog Day!! But more importantly, happy birthday sweetheart!! Yes, today's post is all about my dear husband (dh). This wonderful man came into my life 5 years ago and every day since I have cherished this blessing :) I won't go on and on and list all the reasons why I love him...think of a reason and I'm sure it's on my list :) The challenge for today's card was to make it masculine...no bling, no ribbon, no doily lace border punches. I used Pacific Point as this is Tony's favourite colour. I had one half piece left in my scrap bag (whew!). I searched for some masculine dp and this is what I settled on...I thought the bold polka dots would be fun. Dawn's sentiment from her Signature Greetings worked perfectly. Do you think it's "manly" enough? LOL Here are a few photos of us before I sign off...

This was taken 4 years ago. We were checking out a ski hill close to where we live that had snow shoeing excursions. He's very young at heart...I always joke with him that he's like two 24 year olds!! Lucky me!! LOL


This was taken at Tony's Christmas party a year ago. He's very good at taking our photos!! He took the one above as well...no editing to center us!! Oh, and one other funny little story about his birthday. When we were first dating and coming out of the movie theatre one night, I told him that one of my all time favourite movies was "Groundhog Day." He laughed and told me that was his birthday...a sign or what? LOL We are off to a romantic birthday dinner tonight...he doesn't know where it is...shhhhh!! Have a wonderful day...I hope the groundhog doesn't see his shadow :)



What's in it?
Stamps: PTI signature greetings, background basics retro
Paper: SU pacific point, PTI kraft, black and white dp
Ink: SU basic black, versamark
Accessories: twine, buttons, floss, SU ticket corner punch, fiskars upper crest border punch, cropodile
