OLW #90 - Superstar
This week's One Layer Wednesday challenge is to make a card for the man in your life. My poor husband deserves this card this week, after trying so hard to negotiate the minefield otherwise known to my family as my birthday.
Every year he tries to surprise me with something to make me happy (but never a card - how could he possibly find something better than what I make (his words, not mine!)). This year, he tried to achieve that just by buying pretty much everything he could find - a cake, some ice cream, some fudge and an article about how to buy a new couch (don't get me started on the student-days leather monstrosity in our family room that I've been BEGGING him to replace); hopefully SOMETHING would be pleasing to me! I ate some of the ice cream last night - that made me happy. And I tried the lemon and raspberry cake this morning (yes, at about 10:00) - and was pleasantly surprised (I'm usually a chocolate-or-nothing kind of a girl - doesn't he know that?! But maybe it's time to try something new...).
I really don't understand what makes me so difficult on my birthday - I honestly don't know what I expect to happen, but it never does! lol! At least it's over now until next year! Let the couch shopping begin!
(Edited to add): Cut circle from computer paper, adhered negative mask onto cardstock with repositionable tape. Stamped stars (started with biggest and worked to smallest, trying to ensure that most of the edges of the circle had stars stamped so that your eye can see the edge of the circle). Chose colours as I went. Removed mask, stamped sentiment and added stickles. If I did it again, I may sponge (very lightly) on one side of the circle (left and lower) to make it look 3 dimensional). Colours are limeade, not quite navy, mustard, baha breeze, sahara sand, summer sun soft suede and cherry cobbler.
