Join your hands, and with your hands - your hearts!

Mornin' hens! Did you all have a FABBY weekend? Mine was a lot of fun. We went to my nephew's birthday party and I visited with my family, which is always wonderful, and then I made a few cards yesterday, which was VERY relaxing. Me LOVEEEE coloring! All in all, a wonderful weekend in my book!

My anniversary is this coming up weekend so I needed to step things up a bit and get a card made for my DH! Eeeeek! I surely wouldn't be on the "good wife" list if I didn't make my own hubby a card now would I? Ok, so I dug through my Stamping Bella images and I've been wanting to ink this one up for awhile now, but hadn't really had an occasion until now. This is "Jack and Ginger" by Mo Manning, available from Stamping Bella.

I think they are absolutely adorable don't you? This is so me and my DH too! We still hold hands everywhere we go! He's the most thoughtful man on earth and I'm truly blessed. Ok-ok, enough mushy talk, so I stamped Jack and Ginger onto some Bella's Bestest Paper and colored them with my Copics. I matted them with both SU Night of Navy and Early Expresso. This DP is from the My Minds Eye - Stella and Rose collection. Perfect colors for a man card too! Ya know how it goes, gotta be careful not to use any prissy colors when makin' those men cards. Pfffft! Oh and of course, he'd faint and fall right over if I was to put any ribbon or bows on his card, so I figured I was safe with a button and string!! LOL!!

Okee dokee, that's it for me today. I've gotta treat in store for you hens on Thursday. Yep, that's right! It's high time I have another That's Krafty Thursday challenge, dontcha think? Woo-hoo! Wait til' you see my card!! OMG, it's to die for! I'm SO in love with it, I might not be able to give it away! Bwah-ha-ha-ha! How's that for a teaser? Tee-hee! {{{hen hugs}}}
