Clean & Simple Monday

Today is my DH's birthday.  We have grown old together and I have to say, the second half is so much better than the first was.  We celebrated yesterday, just the two of us and it was good.  I never, however, give him his card until his actual birthday so here is what he got this morning when he got up to make the coffee...yes, he does that!



I wanted something simple but not fishing or BBQ like I usually do and then I spied a old deck of cards that we got at Churchill Downs years ago.   They give the cards they use for gambling away (no we didn't do that!) but first they put a hole clear through the entire pack of cards...box and all.  I have no idea why.  Now you know where the idea for the banner die across the front came from.  He had a hole clean through his middle!

He left me a sweet note saying he loves this card the mostest of any...maybe 'cause I wrote mushy stuff inside, you think?

Supplies:
Cardstock - PTI
Stamps - PTI Enjoy the Ride
Ink - Tsukineko Versafine
Other - playing card, PTI banner die, computer generated sentiment, stick on bling
Pin It!

This would be oh-so-perfect for our card-playing partners/neighbors! Must check to see when Van's b'day comes up! ;)

I bet your hubby loved this...A perfect MAN card! They put those holes in the decks so they are not used for gambling anymore. My mom loves those kinds of decks LOL!
