Today I have a card not made by me: as it's my birthday, I thought I'd put my feet up! About a year ago, my husband finally got all the hints about handmade cards being more special and now, three times a year, he requisitions my craft supplies for an evening to make my birthday, wedding anniversary and Christmas cards. Apart from a minor amount of panic as he asks for help finding various adhesives or scissors, and a minor amount of amusement when he asks questions like "and where is your really bright paper?", it really is a treat that he makes my cards for me!
So today I am sharing his birthday card to me:
He really liked my Stampin' Write marker pens, pulling out a whole array of bright colours which made me wonder what on earth he was making! I knew he'd finished the outside with the question "where is that thing you use to make cards flatter?" but then he had me worried when he asked "and how many different cat stamps do you have and where do you keep them all?" We're both cat mad in this house! But check out his amazing colouring with the blender pen - it's better than I can do!
Today is also our nominated birthday for Socks as we collected him from the rescue centre a year ago to this day! It's amazing to think what a big place our little fur ball has in our lives! I think he knew it was our birthday today as he let me have a lie-in... very much appreciated, Socks, thank you! He's radiator hugging at the moment as it's so windy outside.
I wanted to do something to celebrate my birthday with my blogland friends, but I'm not a fan of candy... I follow people because I like what I see and I hope the same goes for me! So it isn't much, but I would like to send someone in the UK a free Idea Book & Catalogue (RRP £5.95) as whether or not you are as crazy about Stampin' Up! as me, the Idea Book really is jam packed full of ideas and is bound to spark creativity.
I didn't want to exclude my blogland friends beyond our shores, so I would also like to send someone a little handmade something as I'd send you all something if I could. If you're interested in either, just say so in a comment. I will draw two names from a hat tomorrow night.
Now, what to do today to celebrate.... I think I might have a little craft!
