Birthday wish for Thomas

Oops, sorry for the photo with no instructions, I tried to use picasa to find some lost photos and it posted without me realising, (seems like all of this will be centred not like the usual way of up loading- doh!). This is a very simple card I made for 'Thomas' who shares his birthday with DD Rylee. Rylee is the older woman by 1hour and 2 mins- they are like 2 peas in a pod!

Happy Anniversary Baby!

On the 25th of March my DH Ash and I celebrated our 9th wedding anniversary. I was rostered to work that night for a special VIP sale where a wonderful and talented facepainter was employed for the night, since ash and i sacrificed our romantic (???) evening I decided to dedicate my face to a romantic face paint!

The card i made for 'my favourite husband'!

The recipe (mostly SU stuff):
Stamps: PTI Owls, wonderful favourites, SU wheel (can't remember which one!)
Ink: riding hood red, close to cocoa, chocolate chip
Paper: riding hood red, close to cocoa, chocolate chip, whisper white, tangerine tango
accessories: spellbinders nestabilities- circles and scallops, SU chocolate chip ribbon, fiskars threading boarder punch, brown brads, SU crimper.

the romantic face painting (oh how I wish I could air brush out the wrinkles- close ups are not flattering as you get older). S & A in the hearts- yeh I know the S looks like a 5, but you get the general idea.
