Lorie our host this week, chose this scripture: “The scripture challenge is from Song of Solomon 6:3 and it says "I am my Lover's and my Lover is mine; he browses among the lilies." We are to make a card for our special someone and MUST give it to them. My hubby of 30 years is not a mushy, gushy guy but, he has opened so very many doors for me in our life together. He is the social butterfly and I (well you could say reserved). LOL because not anymore. Hee Hee---he encourages, praises, and understands me totally. Love him for that!!! Well the tables have turned with his health 8 years ago and he is challenged with Meniere’s disease (autoimmune). He has lost 80 % of his hearing and the dizziness is constant. I have to tell you that when I gave him this card on Sunday evening he was surprised and truly appreciated the saying inside. awhhh I felt good. So THANK YOU Lorie because I should take time to acknowledge my hubby more often.
I just received this new SU Nouveau Chic designer paper and it seemed to be perfect for a masculine card. The card base is SU kraft paper and then I cuttlebugged the designer paper with swirls and used the corner border for hinges :) The doorknob is a grommet with the punched out piece of diamond cuttlebugged paper glued on top with a black rhinestone (I thought it to be a clever idea :o) I used scrap metal letters to personalize it and Of course I had to add a few butterflies!!! I think it turned out COOL!!!!!!!!!!
The finished inside phrase I found off another card as I was browsing one day--don't remember where but, when I find something that touches my heart I write it down to use in the future. After hubby was diagnosed, each year the symptoms have been progressing and we have spent many hours driving to and sitting in doctors offices. bummer but it is not cancer :)
