34 years!!!

Yep! 34 years!
That's how long we've been married!
(You get less than that for murder)!! LOL

I made a card for hubby of course. He's not a bad lad really.
I CASED a card from Clearly Besotted's Blog. 
(Scroll down a bit).
I don't have the Building Blocks 11 (yet), so improvised.
I used 'Background Builder 111' instead.
I masked a square(ish) panel and stamped inside it.
Not quite as effective, but good enough until I get the Building Blocks.
The banner and heart are from Clearly Besotted and the 'Husband' is from Dove craft.
I coloured the button with a Copic marker, but it streaked, so I ended up with a marble button!
I pulled a thread from a piece of Hessian and threaded it through the button.
Used a ticket punch for the corners and that, as they say, is that.
I also have this card that I made for our next door neighbour's birthday on Wednesday just gone..
It's a variation of my Son's card.
Clearly Besotted stamps used with a touch of white gel pen for the strings.
Simple, but effective and he loved it!
You HAVE to go to the Peachy Keen blog if you LOVE cute stamps!!
You will be be blown backwards when you see the sneak peeks of the THE most amazing release yet from Kathy!! I PROMISE you!!

 Back soon!
