Is it a “cutesy” & “manly” card all in one? I think so:)
Going to ramble about the man who inspired this card, so you can just skip down to the card if you don’t want to read the following paragraph.
For the first time, I think I was able to pull off a masculine card for my husband that totally incorporates my style…so now I can’t wait for Valentine’s Day (yep, already have his card done ladies *wink* and will grab it right back off of him after he opens it). He is a great man. Busy with work so I try to do the little things (yucky ironing and preparing the quick semi-good meal…those things that interrupt you when you’re really into creating something and suddenly have to stop). I see how much he is working lately and I just wanted to write my thoughts on how I’m feeling and how much I appreciate him. One thing I can say about him is that he handles stress so well…he is stronger than me and has way more patience. I love to watch the interaction between him and the kids. I’m the strict one, and he’s so layed back.
My birthday is approaching very quickly and not one bit excited…why is that? It becomes less fun when you pass a certain number? I was joking around saying I wanted to go to California in February and attend CHA as my b-day gift. To my surprise, he said, “set it up and let’s go”. I responded with a, “Shut up!!” (but wanting to jump up and down). My strategy was to START BIG and suggest traveling, then say, “Well, how about all these Nestabilities”…it works ladies — start big and negotiate…lol. I think he justs needs to get away and what better place than CA right? But, I’m gonna pass, stay at home with the kiddos and save the traveling plans for the SU! Convention.
