Wild Thing

You make my Heart Sing!
This is my husbands birthday card! He will think it is hilarious! He is so far from wild which makes it even more comical! I can't believe I have celebrated 31 of his birthdays with him, and one of which was a telephone celebration when he was in the academy! Yes, we have been married a long time! And we have gray hair, and less of it to show the age!

This is the inside of the card! I love this image from Melanie Muenchinger's latest release, Hugs and Cuddles. The sentiments are great to use parts here and there or together to get the perfect message!
I created the template by looking at the stamped image and drawing a loose outline and cut out. I cut into the pattern to remove the face and traced around it on Prism Sunflower Light card stock. I traced the outer edge of pattern onto Prism Sunflowers Dark card stock scored and folded. I purchased my Prism card stock from Cornish Heritage Farms. Scrap SU pink for ears and nose, with lots of shadowing with dauber and Adirondack Espresso ink. The bow is made with ribbon from Flourishes. I added an adhesive gem from GinaK Designs. I know this template is the male lion...but the bow is a reminder of me and he is dreaming of me! Wild Thing! Lol. Simple card for a special message to a wonderful man who still makes my heart sing! Happy birthday, Honey! Thanks so much for stopping by, I appreciate it. I will have a watercolor card to show you tomorrow! Until then, HUGS,

Wow! What a beautiful card inside and out. I wonder what he will think of the ribbon though.

I always love it when I see an older couple holding hands and taking a walk. I wish my hubby and I could be like that when we grow older. The problem is he does not hold hands right now, so no hope he will hold hands later :-)

I love your card and I know your husband will too. We've got you beat by a few years. My hubby and I have celebrated 39 birthdays together. It's wonderful to grow old with someone that makes your heart sing, isn't it?
