I'm getting this month's SFYTT done early as I needed a birthday card for hubby's birthday today.
I continued my Fall leaf theme as they make great masculine cards (any excuse will do wink, wink). A Starbuck's sleeve was perfect for the two panels (tried hard to get the date stamp on the sleeve not to show, but it still managed to make an appearance) and this yummy wide, striped ribbon I have been hording finally came out to play.
I actually passed on the maple leaf this time (mostly because it didn't fit well on the panel - yes I tried it first) and used my unloved oak leaf instead. The button finished things off nicely, and I just "had" to add a bow instead of a knot, but hubby is man enough to handle that LOL!
We survived the first week of school and working our way into our ramped up schedule. Needless to say, we all slept in on Saturday. Today we are going to be celebrating hubby's birthday. My daughter has a friend whose mom is going to give him a Chinese dumpling cooking lesson and I think he will be thrilled with the lesson as he has always wanted to learn how to make them. Then we will give him the TV remote for the rest of the afternoon so he can watch all the sports he wants to, with minimal interruptions as I don't think I can guarantee uninterrupted time with two kids in the house LOL!
Have a great day and I'll be back tomorrow with my Mojo Monday card.
