Today is my DH's birthday, and this is the card I made for him:
The music notes were made with a punch. I only have the punch for the double eighth note, but I was able to make some single eighth notes by fussy-cutting them apart.
Then I stamped just his legs onto my card panel with Versamark and heat embossed them with gold embossing powder.
After adding a couple of googly eyes, he was ready to pop up on my card with some foam tape.
I like the way this one turned out. Hope my DH likes it too.
So, I always get a Dairy Queen cake for my husband on his birthday. In fact, my kids call it "Gary Queen" (his name is Gary), because he likes their soft-serve ice cream so much. When I went to our local DQ to get the cake, I picked one out that had some space to add a personalized message. I asked that they write "75 years young!" on the top of the cake. I even wrote it down for them so they could be sure to get it right.
When they brought the cake back to me, it said "75 year's young!!" For some odd reason, they decided to add an apostrophe, which was absolutely incorrect in this context. They also added an extra exclamation point, which I didn't mind so much, but the apostrophe really bothered me. Rather than embarrass the nice lady who had embellished my cake by asking her to correct it, I simply brought it home and removed the extra apostrophe myself. It was a bit tricky, but I managed to get it done.
Tomorrow we will all celebrate my DH's birthday with family, and we'll enjoy that ice cream cake. I'll enjoy it even more, knowing that the errant apostrophe is no longer there! :)
Thanks so much for stopping by, and remember to laugh--a little or a lot--every day.
