Cherish Edwin

Today i would like to show you a card i made for my husband. Some of you know that we are working like little hamsters at night to finish our basement. During the weekends my husband is pretty much always downstairs and i know that he misses spending time with his boys. I want him to know how much we love him and how much we treasure our family time.

Today came also my new Design Team Kit from Debbies Die Cuts also new stamps from Alota to play with too. I can not wait to show you some cards made with it. Helene sent me some really, really fun Cowboy stamps :-)

Stamps: Edwin Spring kit, Alota Rubberstamps, Art Impressions
DP: green fish paper found at Michaels

Claudia this is such a sweet card, I know it is a "manly" card, but it is still just really sweet. maybe it is the love you put in it. I know it is hard for y'all working so hard. We too have done simular restorations and it takes so much out of you. But so worth the rewards in the end. Love the card and can't wait to see more!
Hugs

Hallo Claudia, die Karte ist wunderschön. Ich weiß was du gerade mitmachst. Wir mussten ja den Dachboden ausbauen damit Tobias ein neues Zimmer bekommt und das andere für´s Baby frei wird. Mein Mann war auch täglich oben und hatte wenig Zeit für uns. Aber bald ist alles erledigt und das hoffe ich für euch auch.

Liebe Grüße auch an deinen fleißigen Mann, Andrea
