For a very special person

This card has no stamp but a lot of heart! I made this one especially for my husband in appreciation for his support in all I do. He is always asking: “So, when are you going to Skype with Ivonne?” Of course, there is an advantage for him on this. He goes and watches a “James Bond” movie, which he has the whole collection while Ivonne and I talk for hours. [Insert smile!]

On the other hand, there have been times when I’ve needed something to finish a project and haven't been able to leave the office on timeHe has asked what do I need from the craft store and he goes and gets it for me. He will even print the discount coupon because he knows that’s how I shop. [Insert grin!]
For all of these reasons and many more, this card is dedicated to my hubby, Michael. Thank you for supporting my passion and always being there for me!
