Happy Birthday!

Hi, there!

I wasn't sure I'd be back this soon, but I needed to get a birthday card made for my husband.  I got it done just under the wire since his birthday is tomorrow.  I am pleased how I dressed the fine gentleman as seen above on the card!  It brings me back to the 70's or even the 60's, lol!  I paper pieced his vest and pants and colored his shirt with copics.  The image is from MFT.  The background stripe stencil is from Pink Fresh and the numbers are from a Tim Holtz stencil.  My husband's favorite color is green.  I think I managed to get enough green on this card!

For the inside of the card...

I didn't want hubby to feel too bad getting another year older, so I put the old lady inside.  For I am no spring chicken myself!  I love this stamp set from MFT...what a hoot!

We are going out tonight for his birthday with our son and some friends to our favorite Italian restaurant.  Maybe I should tell the waitress or waiter to sing happy birthday to him?! 

Thanks so much for dropping by today!  Take care and enjoy your weekend!



  1. This is adorable - both inside and out. I LOVE the paper piecing on the little guy. So much fun and I know he's going to love his card. Really like all that green too!

  2. Happy birthday to your hubby! Sounds like it will be a great celebration tonight.
    Your card is fun and cute. With all that green you should enter it in the numerous current green challenges.

  3. That's quite a fun card you made for your hubby and I'm sure he got a chuckle or two out of it. I hope you had a great birthday dinner celebration too! At 67, he's still a spring chick!

  4. A fun card for hubby..I am sure he loved it. Happy Birthday to him!

  5. The gentleman looks quite dapper and would be a hit on the golf course! Happy Birthday to hubby and I hope you had a great time last night.

  6. What a fun birthday card for your hubby Maria! I love your dapper gentleman, you did a great job on him. I also love the inside of your card. None of us are getting any younger or any sharper with the memory aren't we?! I was married to a farmer, so when we had to dress up to go somewhere, I love it because it meant more than jeans and t-shirts/sweatshirts that he wore on the farm. LOL He always cleaned up nice, nicer than me! Hope hubby had a fabulous birthday! Hugs, Brenda

  7. I love the spiffy outfit you have given to your gentleman, Maria and I bet your husband loved this fun card. Hope you enjoyed the celebration meal out.
    Take care,

  8. What a fun and wonderful card, love the fabulous images. I hope the waitress sang to hubby. hahaha
