Happy Birthday to my DDH!

It is my Definitely Darling Husband's birthday today. He doesn't read my blog but I'll say Happy Birthday Dear to him here anyway. I made him a couple of cards that he'll get spread throughout the day today and then I'm going to make him another one to give him at the bash I'm throwing for him at Buca de Beppo with all the kids and grandkids, etc. tomorrow.




I saw this card and just loved the sentiment. Not having the stamp, I resorted to the old computer trick and voila card #2 was born!! The bottom card is my first attempt at creating an image from separate png files using Adobe - thanks to Mochamama for the inspiration on this one (and so much else). The top one is just bits and pieces. I loved the dp and put it through one of my new Asian embossing folders.

I have not spaced out the blogoversary candy (even tho it's about a month overdue) and hopefully this weekend I'll get some pictures and figure out if I'm going to do something besides count comments. I thought about having a sketch challenge and letting DH pick his fave. I'm going to have to close it to non-North American folks because the box will be big and heavy and shipping overseas will be a bit too much. I have been adding stuff as the weeks have gone by and it's a pretty cool stash of stuff. Watch for a slideshow tomorrow or Sunday.

New challenge coming up on Kaboodle Doodle on Monday and we're debuting all the new dt members so be sure to check that out too! I'll have a bit of a sneaky peak at that this weekend too.

Allison has posted a new challenge for Everything Old is New Again and it's a doozie - be sure to check it out and play along. I'll have an entry for that this weekend too!

Going to be a busy, busy weekend - again! The weather looks to be just right for staying indoors - cold, rain, snow - love it!

Thanks for visiting!

What fantastic cards for DDH. I think I favor the first card, the patterned paper with the texture on it is so great!
