To My Favorite Guy

Happy Birthday, Hubby

Happy birthday!!! So very glad that you were born many years ago! So very glad too that I met you 8-yrs ago, drunk and all, at a club. If we met in an online dating site we would most likely never have gotten together. The system would never in a million years match us up (if it did, it would be because of the plus/minus 3% margin of error… or a computer glitch), HA!! You have to admit though, I am a lot more charming in person than in photos or online (he’s thinkin’: Yeah, right, only if no word comes out of your mouth). As odd as it may seems we’re still happily together and I have to say, we’ve made some pretty cute mini us along the way {::SMILES}. Love*** you tons!!

To all of you reading out there… life is so much nicer when you’re with somebody who loves you as much as you love them. Even though you’re with somebody you’re free to be yourself and become whatever it is that you desire. It really is worth it, even if you have to make many sacrifices, adjustments, and changes because in the long run you’ll gain back everything that you’ve lost and achieve many more. It’s rewarding to be with somebody whom you can learn from and after the few years together he still gives me the butterflies + warm and fuzzies.

The above card I made for the hubby. I used WPlus9′s stamps: Woodgrain Silhouette and Addition (my FAVORITE sets!!) and a 2Sketches4You sketch by Kazan. This week Wplus9 is the sponsor and there’s an AWESOME prize for this week’s winner. Also, this is 2S4Y’s 2nd anniversary and there are MORE prizes to giveaway!! Go check 2Sketches4You out and also see what the other DTs has to offer.

The card’s fairly simple, I used the twine that I purchased from Etsy: Annie42 (yards of twine from this store for a great price!!!), Martha Stewart twill ribbons that I found on base for $2.50/spool (YEEESH!!!!! The one I have is a 7-yrds spool), staples, PTI button and kraft cardstock, and SU cardstock + ink. I think despite the flowers the card is pretty manly.

Well, I was suppose to go on base but Jovie just woke up from an extra long nap. I need to pick up M soon so we might just wait til we get M to get some groceries. We buy fresh produce from the store in town but there are a lot of things that we still pick up from the base once a month too like American cereal, Oreos (cheaper) and my ramen noodles. I still love ramen noodles, Shin Ramens to be more exact. That’s my craft secret. When I eat ramens before I craft I am more creative. Oh, and after wine too. More later!!
