GIU Day TWO!

One day closer to my BIRTHDAY!

I am so excited. Chris and I are hoping that the farm will allow us to take a night off and run away to the city for some dancing and romancing! I love it when Chris comes up with ideas on what to give/get me all on his own. Makes it that much more special!

But that isn't why you are here... 

You are here to see my next card:

I made this a while ago with a bunch to give to Chris periodically. I just FINALLY gave it to him, so now can share on the blog!

The denim looking paper was given to me in a RAK package from KELLI P! Such a sweet woman!  The buttons are from one of Chris's worn out shirts (I think i ended up cutting 27 buttons off ONE shirt - SCORE!) and the stamp is from Samantha Walker's set Retro Road Trip

My Husband's Grandfather shares a birthday with me... so I used the same LO and stamp set as above to make a Birthday Card for him: (color is RED, but took picture with Cellphone)


Thanks for visiting.

I love both of these cards. And don't you love when you can find things around the house, outtings...and on shirts :) to use on our cards. I just went to a little neighborhood fair over the weekend and scored some of those raffle tickets that I know I'll be using on future creations.

Great birthday cards and happy birthday to you! How are your crops doing? First we had tons of rain and now we've only had about 2/10s in the last month, but things look good here.
