Hans' Birthday Card!

How has it been 5 days since I have posted!?! Where does the time go!?

Thank you for all of your sweet comments on the My Pink-alicious Blog Hop (the layout for my husband). I told him that if he needed some extra encouragement to go read all of the comments! :)

This was for my husband's birthday (March 1st). He recently came with me to pick up doggy food supplies and picked out this hedge hog squeaker toy for Spoon. We couldn't figure out if it was a porcupine or a hedge hog. The tag said hedge hog. So I made this card for him because she loved it so much she tried to tear it's nose off within hours! (Apparently this is a sign of true love for dogs). 

Anyway, Hans also has this thing with umbrella drinks. On our honeymoon in Fiji he just wanted a drink with an umbrella in it to take a picture of and the entire 10 days we were there, he NEVER got one! So the next Christmas my mom got him a whole package of umbrellas to put in his drinks. We've teased him about it ever since. So I wanted to give him an umbrella drink. :) 



This is what the inside/middle of the card looks like:

It's such a wonderful card - love the hedgehog with the party hat and umbrella drink. My lab loved all things "hedgie" - it was always her toy of choice! Happy Birthday, Hans and way to go, Spoon on your love of hedgehogs.
