Hellooooo lovely bloggers!!!  Now that the day has come & gone I can show you the birthday card I made for my hubby, Jeremy!  This year he is the grand age of 54 and he still acts like he is 20 haha  I am very lucky to have him.

I have used the same building stamp from Crafty Individuals for this...he loves architecture :D  I used my fave method again for the background where I dab distress inks onto my glass mat & spritz with water then drag the card over.  Then I overstamp with Mimento and colour in with distress inks.

I am not being sentimental with this quote...Jeremy really does encourage me in all my craftwork and is a very good critic hahaha!!!

Thank you for popping by today...tomorrow is WOYWW and I can at last show you my new sewing area...YAY!!!!!  HUGS XXX
