I bet you are wondering what a Husband Kit is...you probably wish you had one too...right? LOL, who doesn't? Luckily, I was the recipient of a big bag of cards made specially for my sweet, but card-challenged husband...all made for me by my friend Joyce Mehrberg of Cards by the Sea. Joyce had a brilliant idea last year. Probably like every card maker, we make so many cards to give to others, yet are lucky to receive one purchased from the grocery store an hour before our birthdays, anniversary's or Mother's Day. I know that is the way it always goes down at my house. Joyce thought up the idea to make a whole batch of cards...probably enough for two years worth of events and to mail them in a Top Secret package...ready and waiting for our husbands or children to look through and present to us on our special occasions. Last Summer, I received this package from Joyce. Kim Heggins, Tracey McNeely and Joyce also received packages from each other. I stored my package away and had a long time to wait before I could hand this package to Warren this weekend. Here is a picture my daughter took of him as he opened the package:
From his expression, he was either excited or afraid of what was in that envelope...either way...he was happy to not have to run off to the store to buy me my anniversary card. Here's the beautiful card that Warren/Joyce gave me:
Isn't this pretty? I love the woodgrain paper, the cute hearts on the mini tag and those very delicate flower dies. Thank you Joyce (you will notice I did not thank Warren) for the beautiful card. For Warren...thank you for 34 years and for giving me the kind of life I had always dreamed of. My birthday is coming up soon and Warren has already picked out the card he's going to present to me...I'll post a picture after I open it up. Wasn't a husband kit a great idea?
