Happy Birthday to my Hubby!

Birthday snap

It's my husband's birthday today.  This was the card I made for him.  It uses a Darkroom Door stamp that I stamped with Archival Coffee ink.   I then sponged on some distress inks.  The photo corners were die-cut from white card and inked with Walnut Stain ink.   The sentiment is from Hero Arts.   I gave it to him this morning with a box of liquorice.  He always says that's what he wants whenever you ask him!  I did buy a new Barbeque and new yard broom for him as well over the weekend.


Due to intermittent showers all afternoon Sunday, he assembled the barbeque in our bedroom as it is leads off the deck through some ranchslider.   He is reading the instructions.  Now if only the weather would improve... it's been cold and windy for over a week now.

Well it's nearly time for me to get ready to go out to dinner....for him ~ Lambs Fry and Bacon ~his favourite meal and NOT mine.  And by going out, I won't have to cook it!
