Happy Birthday Dwight!

Today is my husband Dwight's birthday!  I am such a lucky lady to have found such a wonderful husband!  He is a wonderful father, I just love watching him with the kids!  He is such a wonderful husband too!  He rubs and scratches my back every night before bed!  He is patient with me (good thing!!).  He listens to me.  He respects me.  He encourages me.  He supports me.  On and on and on.  I love thinking about how God made him just for me!   Dwight, I love you!  Thank you for who you are...to me...to the kids...to the church...to the community!   (He reads my blog...well, "read" might be a strong word, but he looks at it since it's in his Google Reader...and so that is why I put this little "tribute" to him on here!)

Ok, so enough sap!! On to the card!


I have to admit that I struggle with masculine cards.  This one looks a little too juvenile for a grown man but he is a kid at heart so maybe he'll still appreciate it! LOL!!


I used the My Favorite Things banner die to make the banner and also to make the party hat.  After I cut out the pieces the party hat just seemed fitting!

This card is based on The Clean & Simple Blog's sketch #106
