For my hubby


Over on Docrafts this week, there was thread in the forum asking
"If you could make one card for anyone who would it be and why?"

Lots of us answered and our thoughts were from deceased relatives, to famous people and a few of us also mentioned our hubbies.

Well, mine has been having a tough time of it recently, and I really admire him for sticking with it, even though it's tough.  So on Saturday, I thought that I would make him a card to let him know just what he means to me ........... and here it is.

The Front

The inside front

What he really is to me

I'm quite a softy at heart and had not made him a card, since I started all this in May 2011.

Black ribbon from stash

I am going to enter this into the following challenges:

Top Three at New Inspriational Challenges Blog and The Craft Barn Candy

Hi Everyone,

Theres a new blog in town .........  it's called Just Inspirational Challenges.  Anyway, there first challenge used a gorgeous picture of fall, stunning colours, which inspired me to make my friendship card of the month using flowers and the colours in the picture.
Brilliant News, I made the top three.  Fab.  I am sooooo chuffed.

Thanks girlies.

So go on pop on over and have a look at their fab challenge site and give it a go.

and now for this:

The Craft Barn is giving away an amazing £200 of goodies to ONE lucky person.  All you have to do is become a follower, leave a comment and write them up on your blog.  To be drawn on the 25th November 2011.

I live far away from their shop, too far to travel from Somerset, but their fab online store is brilliant and stocks so much, mmmmmmmm salivating about all that paper just thinking about it, and dies, and glues, and pens, and glitter and oh the list goes on and on and on.

So go on pop on over and have a little look see, but don't forget to come back to see me again.
