A Bushel of Hugs for You!
Well, I have a bushel of hugs for my DH! Today's his birthday, and since it's not harvest season or even planting season, I guess hugs are all he's gettin', lol! Seriously though, it was hard for me to come up with a theme for his card, but as I was thumbing through my stamp sets, I saw this sentiment in my new "Fruit Sentiments ONE" set from Peachy Keen and thought it would fit my DH since he's our gardener. He has started plowing the garden; so does that count?
Anyway, the inspiration for my card came from the sentiment and Peachy Keen's current sketch challenge. You can find it here.
I used all scraps from my stash--seriously, I could make 1,000 cards from all those scraps I keep, lol. I cut the bushel basket from Cricut's DoodleCharms and the veggies from Country Life. I added Peachy Faces from the PK-500 Snow Cutie Face Assortment (versatile!) and the sentiment I told you about above.
I couldn't resist those cute faces, and since the card will be from the kids, too, I thought we could go with cuteness on the grown man's card! lol!
A side view so you can see how I popped up the basket and veggies.
The inside has another sentiment from the PK-162 Fruit Sentiment ONE set.
Well, now that the card is finished and posted, I have to go clean house--DH's grown daughter and her family are coming over for dinner and birthday cake. At least she's bringing the dinner! That's a plus for me, and it's not even my birthday!!
Hope you like this card!! It kind of makes me hungry for some fresh vegetables from the garden . . .
