A card for my darling hubby..

I thought I would make Nige a card, just so he knows how much I do appreciate him...
Also to thank him for all his support and help over the last few years...and for helping me come to a huge decision about my future....within the next few months I will me having major surgery and won't be able to do anything for nearly 2 months (so no card making argghhh!!! thats gonna be soooo hard lol) but Nige and my fab girls have said they will help me as much as they can, so I feel so much better about turning their lives upside down for a few months lol

Stuff I Used

I decided to use a freebie image that I got from meljen's designs she has some gorgeous images so why not pop on over and have a look...
Printed on IQ paper
Coloured with my promarkers
Papers K & Co
letters & heart cut on my slice in scrap papers
button, ribbon, brads and twine my stash

Thanks for looking, you comments are always welcome xxx
