My Beautiful Christmas Card from My Hubby!

I had to laugh so hard this Christmas!  Last year I gave my hubby a hard time for not getting me a card....he said he didn't have time to get to the store to get a card and I told him he should have went in my craft room and made one.  His remark at that was that he couldn't use my stuff because he would use the "wrong" thing and I would be mad!  I told him that he could use my most favorite paper and embellishments and it wouldn't matter because it would be a card I would treasure forever!

Well this year he must have remembered what I said because this is the card I got:

He told me he wanted his "own" watermark!
 
Isn't that adorable?  He's so funny!  I asked him why no dp paper or glitter and sparkles and his response was that when he was trying to make my card he went into my craft room and was pretending to wrap my present.  After 1 1/2 hours later he came out with one decorative box (no wrapping paper involved) and I was like what the heck took you so long....of course he just smiled and I was like whatever.  Then when we went to my parents house for Christmas and opened our presents and I saw this card I knew what took him 1 1/2 hours in the other room that night!  He said he couldn't use any punches or things because I was in the room right next to him and I would have heard everything and knew something was up.  He said he was trying to be so quiet going through my embellishment drawers to try and find stuff to decorate the card with...he did find the "love" sticker! :)  I think he did wonderfully!  

For the past couple days he's been asking me if I put his card on my blog yet....I think he secretly wants to be blogland famous!  LOL!  He says he is a "natural" born cardmaster where I had to "learn" to make cards!  Oh that guy cracks me up!  Love him to pieces!

As you can tell by the card my present from my hubby this year was a trip to Vegas!!!!  I am so excited and can't wait to go!  We are planning our trip over my spring break in March...what a wonderful break from school that will be! :)

ETA:  Any recommendations of places to stay, things to do, or places that are a MUST SEE in Las Vegas please let me know! :)  All info is greatly appreciated!

I've hope you enjoyed my hubby's card as much as I did!

Recipe:
Stamps: n/a - He wanted to use a stamp but was afraid he'd wreck them because he didn't know how to clean them!  Isn't that cute?!  I'm giving him a class in stamp cleaning 101 so next time he can use stamps!
Inks: Sharpie Black Marker - I told him there is a whole desk of Copics in there and he can add some color...he won't hurt anything....lol!
Papers:  GP cardstock - he was too afraid to use dp because he thought the ones he liked looked to expensive to "wreck"....silly boy!
Tools:  paper cutter
Embellishments:  DCWV sticker

♥ Thanks for stopping by! ♥

I LOVE HIS CARD!!! All of my boys know that they better NEVER buy me a card and that nothing is off limits when it comes to making me a card. I think their cards are the best ones of all. But everything is off limits when it's my time to play. LOL!!
