Happy Birthday DH!

Happy Birthday!

Today is my DH's birthday and he was woken up with our two wonderful boys beaming and ready for school (of course DH was not ready to wake up yet!)  While the young bots are at school we will both be relaxing at home after being able to co-ordinate our days off together which seems to be a very rare occurrence.

As you can see by looking at earlier card posts I had a theme going on with his birthday cards this year and this is the one from me.  I am loving the fact that I have been able to add some real hardware to my embellishment stash!

Materials Used; Pollycraft Designs Digi - Cog Girl, Copic Ciao's, SU Basic Grey, Pacific Point and some other generic green card stock, DP from Kaiser crafts Konstruct Collection,  Sakura Glaze pens, metal flower bead spacers, twine and hardware from my new hardware stash.

Challenges entered;

Pollycraft Monday Challenge; Photo Inspiration 
Paper Sundaes; Metal  
Bee Crafty; All About The Image (alternative craft item is the hardware) 
Creative Inspirations Challenge; Recycled Element (that would be the nut and washers)
Ooh La La Creations; Spots and Dots
