I Needed Cilantro But…

A Card for Hubby Some while back I asked hubby to buy me some cilantro and he came home with parsley. He swore he got it from the cilantro pile. Oh well. But since then I never ask him to buy me cilantro. Well today I wanted to make an Indian dish and later this week whip up some enchilada. I asked hubby if I could trust him with some cilantro and in an annoying voice (and look) said, “That was a long time ago. Quit bringing it up.” I said fine and put cilantro on the grocery list. Guess what? He came home with parsley. HA! He was soooo pissed. He said the parsley was in the cilantro pile and he even asked somebody. Ahhh… maybe one more try? Third time’s a charm?

Here’s a card that I created using two challenges. The first is Kazan’s sketch from 2S4Y and the other is Cinema Saturday’s Casablanca. After creating this card I realized that there’s a twist on the Casablanca card (I got to learn to read better) and that there’s a color requirement of black, white, gray, and a color of my choice. My colors are way off. I got the black and white right but obviously I have more colors than what was asked. BUT, I got the romantic portion down {::SMILES}. This is my Valentine’s card for the hubby. Hope he likes it (it’s not pink and there are no glitters, he should, ha!).


Mostly from my Scarlet Lime kit: SEI paper (the flower cut-out), b/w wrapping paper, and buttons and butterfly. Cardstocks are SU’s and the tag is K&Co Amy Butler. I used my Cuttlebug too for the texture – since the machine and template are still out from the other card.

Hope you had a great Monday. I was off today, yeah!

  1. Wow! This card is a true original. The colors work and those black petals pop off of the card. Your hubby will love it.

    Good luck on getting cilantro!

  2. LOL, your poor DH. At least he was willing to pick up the groceries. =) Maybe you should teach him what cilantro smells like so he can do a smell test next time. =)

  3. This card is wonderful!! I love the colors.

    Funny story about the cilantro. I sent my hubby to the store today to get parsley for an Italian dish I made tonight…I kind of cringed and told him to make sure it was parsley and not cilantro. He did come home with parsley, but my step-son (who went with him) told me that they had to ask someone to make sure it was parsley. LOL

  4. LOVELY card…close enough on the challenge…oops! LOL about the cilantro. Have him google it, or taste is or something! He he! Men…gotta love’ em. Have a great day and happy new year! Di

  5. OMG, this is absolutely g-o-r-g-e-o-u-s! The colors are absolutely splendid! I {heart} reading your stories…cracks me up…You so need to find a cilantro stamp…

  6. I think the 3rd time should be a trip to the grocery store that the two of you take together so that you can see what’s up with this cilantro / parsley mix up!! Too funny!

  7. I LOVE the colors on your card…so bold and he is going to love it! I tell my husband if you’re not sure what your buying grab your phone and picture google it! hahaha!

  8. This is so pretty. Glad you could play this week. I have to laugh at the Cilantro, I am the shopper & when ever I send DH for anything, I get a minimum of 3 calls from the store, “do you mean this? or this? cause there’s two different ones ….. ” sigh. Gotta love ’em!

  9. Wow! Incredible card! Seriously, wow! I can totally sympathize with your hubbie. they never mark it here and I’m always having to nonchalantly sniff it to see which one I’m coming home with!

  15. Beautiful card Savitri! You know what – I’ve committed the same mistake so I better not say anything to anybody :). I started to make cilantro chutney and thought to myself “Hmm..the aroma is very different” LOL! After that I’ve been so careful while getting cilantro!!
