Embracing My Inner Pooh

Hi, guys! Tuesday was my husband's birthday. Both Elvis Presley and David Bowie share the same birthday as well.  I fought the urge to make hubby an Elvis card for I knew he would expect one.  Instead I made him one using a Winnie-the-Pooh stamp and sentiment.With my name I am sure you can bet that I have Pooh stamps.  The sentiment is from Verve and is one that I love, as my hubby gave me a plaque once with Pooh and this saying.  It is very sweet and special to me.

Supplies:
Stamps: Verve, Disney All Night Media
Paper: Papertrey Ink, Gina K (White)
Ink: Memento Black, Distress Ink
Misc.: Cuttlebug Embossing Folder, Spellbinder Circle Die, Scallop Square Punch, Stampin' Up Hardware, Bakers Twine, Copics

When I was a young child I loved Winnie-the-Pooh as my mom would read the stories to me. Later on I disliked him (hard to believe) as I was teased with my name and would have the song even sung to me. Years later, I am back to loving him again.  Yes, I have heard all the jokes and trivia questions and yes, I do love honey!  I have now embraced my inner-Pooh!

Notice the bakers twine on this card?  It was given to me by my father-in-law!  My hubby has people saving their twine from their bakery boxes for me.  It is funny and endearing all at the same time.

Wishing hubby the best year yet!

Until next time!

Okay! I am in love with this card! I collect Winnie the Pooh (a childhood obsession) and this is awesome! So, what would something like this cost me?? :)
