A special "card" for my DH!


Hello my Friends.  I hope your Christmas was wonderful.  I had great Christmas Eve and Christmas Day with family and friends.

I made a card for my husband... but not a traditional one.  It is not very symmetrical and probably would not make any sense for you...but I made it full of symbols that describe him... at least in my perspective.

I made it in a canvas with words since he likes to read and lives by his word.  I used paint all over and specifically added some brushes since he likes and appreciates art and its forms.

I also stamped a message about how he needs coffee but deserves wine, and used a clock with wine glasses because he is very strict with time and I usually see him relaxed when he's tasting wine.

I added a dog's silhouette to symbolize our dog son, and I also included arrows because he's like a personal GPS for some people.

A house symbolizes his love for our home and a big heart in pieces to be able to love a lot of different people around him.

Also rulers because he is very square and likes to measure all. LOL!

And there's much more... but you've got the idea.  He loved his special piece of art.  Hope you like it.  Tks for your comments.


I am going to link this to Unity Stamp Co.'s Friday Friends with Flair, so if you leave a comment you are participating for a chance to win great goodies.  You won't be disappointed.  Have a great weekend!
