My hubby's Christmas card!

Steve isn't really into cards, thinks they are a waste of money so it's difficult to make him one that I think he'll appreciate!  But once again I've made him one and I have NO IDEA if he'll like this one either!!

Hey ho, he's going to get it anyway!  I think he'll like it for its cleverness - this is Peas On Earth by Whimsie Doodles and I kept it all very simple (very unlike me!) with a touch of fluffy stuff on the hats, a little show of red cardstock and an embossed background.  I am itching to do more to it but know I shouldn't!!  To add or not to add?!!  Here's a close up - let me know what you think...



Back tomorrow with my Pixie Dust Studios DT card!



I am entering my card into the following challenges:

Love the peas on earth. My husband is the same, so I don't make him one. His birthday is coming up so will make him a card for that,
Wishing you both a Merry Christmas now as time will get more hectic as the days go on.

This is such an adorable card, Mary! I'm sure he'll love it :) xo

Kathleen said...

I love it, but leave it as it is as if you add more he will thnk it is an even bigger waste of money.
My husband is the same, will hardly look at any of the cards I make and he tells me regularly that when I'm gone he will not send any cards at all. Boxing Day he takes all his birthday cards down. MEN!

This is cute and I love the simplicity of it too... The image is fun, it's cute.... My hubby is the same way, I think most men are like that.... He often tells me you have so many tons of cards you need to start giving them away or sell them.... I'm just obsess with cardmaking, if I'm not in my craft room one day I can't think straight...he,he...
Tell him to relax on this card....
Have a joyful day.....
hugs to you :)

Have a very Merry Christmas.

Goodness these DH's just
'Do Not Understand!' I think this is a delightful card Mary, and I honestly believe he will see the quirkiness in it, and you will at least get a smile!
He may think they are a waste of money, but does he not realise that when a person receives a handmade card that it lifts ones spirits!
Smiles:)

Faye said...

Bah Humbug Steve!!! I think this card is absolutely perfect and just too darn cute. I think he'll love it as it's a perfect guy card...simple in design and clean and he can reach out and touch something:)!! And paper is any more waste of money than golf, hunting or any other guy hobbies!! I hope ya'll have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year
