another day, another year, another decade

When I walked into the office this morning, I saw this man-card sitting on my desk.

(Are the exclamation points representative as my decades? There's a message there I think.)

I classify it as a man-card, because there is wood on it.


And in it.

Apparently, Greg spent some time crafting yesterday.

I'm still trying to figure out his adhesive strategy here. He used tacky glue on the wood, perhaps the same on the papers and ribbon, and packing tape on the corners of some papers as decoration.

In the end, I suppose it's half a birthday card and half-Valentine's.

But, it's the thought that counts, right?

And, let me tell you, there were lots of thoughts going on here.

Happy Birthday to me!

Best "man card" evah! Men and their adhesive choices always dumbfound me. My step-father tried to make my mom a birthday card once and used scotch tape. All of the girls in our family are scrapbookers, we have NEVER let him live it down. Now he just pays my sister to make him a card :)

Happy Happy Birthday to you! Hope your wishes come true.

Oh he is a keeper April. The fact he took the time to think of you and make something special with you in mind while he created it is the best gift. You need a special box for all of your little cards. They are wonderful to look back through.

Sounds like your Birthday started off well.

I hope you enjoyed your day!

Your husband is so special to take the time to use what crafting skills he has and make you a birthday card, instead of doing what was easy and going and buying one. I love the way he is telling you Happy Birthday and how much he loves you all in one. There might be alot of thoughts going on, but he sure does love you. That is the main one! Happy Birthday!

Valerie Bishop said...
