Hey crafty people!  How is your week going so far?  I hope you are carving out some crafty time for yourselves!

I'm here today to share with you the card I created for Husband Appreciation Day, which was on April 21st.

I was in a bit of a dilemma as to what image to use to show my husband that I appreciate him.  Then I came across this little guy, which is Fat Mice - FlowerI wouldn't ordinarily give my hubby flowers, but this is a pretty cute way to do that.  Here is what I stamped on the inside, using Honey Bee stamps.

I used Faded Jeans Distress Oxide for my stamping, and I also used it to sponge the front of my card.  The patterned circles were die cut from a tissue box.  The chubby guy was colored with alcohol markers.
