Merry-Kiss-Mas Hubby

Happy Sunday Crafting chums,

Today I had everything ready to decorate the tree and house for Xmas. Yesterday we got the tree, I spray painted wood branches, cones and basically anything I could get my hands on. Callum-my hubby-had to keep moving otherwise he would now be a metallic silver!).
But then last night I was ill and my plans were not looking like they would go ahead. Callum did a fab job, ironing, getting dinner prepared, buying new Xmas lights and starting the decorating. Finally after I had slept all day I got up, put my new Michael Buble Xmas c.d on and tried to get creative. Between the two of us we got it done and we are super happy with the end result.
Callum is now having a Whiskey Mac cocktail whilst I came up and suddenly had an idea for his Xmas card.

I was inspired by the 'nice and knotty' challenge at Cas-ual Friday and the Xmas colour combo of Black, white and metallic at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown Challenge. This combo seemed ideal for a guy but I really hadn't meant it to me for Callum but when an idea pops in my head I have to go with it. And here we are:

Now, I know, you may be thinking a bow for a guy?? But believe me, he has seen me pull my hair out trying to make so many bows, that he will appreciate this to make it into a knot only took me a few hours more!
I used my new Cas-ual Friday stamps for the sentiment. I so love the CAS look of this, although it has the super over sized bow, it still looks CAS to me.
Well I am off to give this to him now so I am hoping it will make him smile and realise how blessed I feel to have him as hubby-in sickness and in health!!


  1. absolutely gorgeous. I love the beautiful is amazing Sandie. I'm sure Callum will absolutely love it. So thankful today is turning out to be a better day for you than yesterday.
