This is one of 12 cards I made for my husband for his birthday this year. Yeah that's right I made him twelve cards.
Now, I'm betting you are wondering why and the reason is that I owe him. I'm really bad at taking it for granted that he will understand that I didn't get time to make his card. Everyone else is normally ok its just normally his card so this year I made him 12 to remind him that though I sometimes don't get the card made that he deserves that I do remember that I didn't do it and I do care.
I thought my penance *ahem* theme would be year around. It just somehow seemed appropriate. On the inside it reads "Its time to celebrate!"
So I began with time (geddit January? time?) ok I know! You're a tough crowd! Anyway my DH loves clocks so there is a secondary theme with it. I've had these Heidi Grace clock face stamps that I picked up on sale ages ago that I have never used (a good run on sentence and rationale to use them!) that I decided to use. I also broke out my non-sale, new to me, I knew I would need it sometime, number collage embossing folder. *wink wink*
Yeah, its clean and simple, or at least about the only version of CAS I can achieve.
I numbered his envelopes so this was the first card he opened... he knew, that I knew, that he likes clocks so I don't think he cottoned on to the overall theme at that point!
