Another Peek and a Birthday!

Hello!!!  Today is Day 3 of my Guest Blog Week at JustRite and today it's a Coffee Hamper including these cute coasters and a recipe!!!  I hope you pop on over to the JustRite Blog and have a look!!!  I do have to confess that I don't actually drink coffee - nope not at all!!!  For some reason that tends to shock people, but then my husband drinks enough for both of us!!!  :)

Now speaking of my hubby - today is his 40th Birthday!!!!  Happy Birthday Matthew!!!!!  Mwah!!!  Of course I had to make him a card - so today's card is a Masculine 40th Birthday Card!!!

I started with a base of Very Vanilla and layered with some dark green bazzill (pretending to be Always Artichoke that I have realised I'm out of) and then Soft Sky and some retired SU Le Jardin DSP.  The middle panel is more dark green that I punched around the edges using the Fiskars Upper Crest Border Punch and layered with more Very Vanilla and more Le Jardin DSP.  I then made a frame out of some Very Vanilla by using two sizes of the Label 3 dies to cut and emboss.  Finally I stamped the numbers in Always Artichoke using SU's retired Headline Numbers, cut them out and popped them up on foam tape.

I'm happy to say that he liked his card!!!  (Mum and Scoob, he liked yours too!!  :)  )

Stamps - Headline Numbers
Paper - Very Vanilla, Dark Green Bazzill, Soft Sky, Le Jardin DSP
Ink - Always Artichoke
Accessories - Fiskars Upper Crest Border Punch, Label 3 Nestabilities, Foam Tape.

That's all for today, thanks for visiting!!!  :)

What a wonderful card for your hubby. Wish him a happy birthday and tell him the 40s are great :D (I've broken them in for him LOL). Love how you framed the 40 with the nestie and your DPs are great. I don't drink caffeinated coffee any more (except under dire circumstances and then boy does it work!) but must say I love the taste of it.
