Viva La Verve & a card for my wonderful HUBS!!

For those of you that know my husband and I....can you tell which one is his Anniversary card?? HEHE....all the sentiments would fit the bill....
IT"S THIS ONE!!! Of course!! For all that know my beloved husband....he is a man of the outdoors!!! Lives for hunting season!! I'm so happy that as this post is on my blog, he is getting to do his favorite past time....HUNTING.
I know some gals really despise hunting and all the time that their husbands spend doing it, but for anyone that has a hobby they love, they can understand the excitement that the hunters must have. They only get a few weeks a year to do it. Can you imagine if we could only make cards or scrap 4 to 6 weeks a year. Oh my. I wouldn't be able to make it.
Happy Anniversary Baby!!! I'm glad it's YOUR time of year. YOU DESERVE IT!!!

My sentiments exactly! Hubby goes off fishing, I get to play with paper all day! Great cards Wendy!

Love all three of these, Wendy! I think my fave is the middle one because of the colors. My hubby is heavily into fishing, particularly deep sea fishing. I know what you mean...I'd hate it if there was a "papercrafting season" only once a year. TFS

These are beautiful cards, and I especially like the one with the deer, very majestic and lovely scene. Your hubby is lucky to have you :-)
