Hubby's Birthday!

Well yesterday was my hubby's birthday! I set about making his card on Wednesday night, but having been away for a few weeks I had crafters block, I just couldn't seem to find any inspiration! But I finally made a card; he was happy with it even if I thought it lacked inspiration. But that was the easy bit...what do you buy a man who has everything (well almost)? What made it worse was that in a remote little town in the French countryside the choice of gifts is pretty limited! I spent 2 hours trying to find something original but I have to say it was a bit soul destroying! Urr, should I buy a baguette, a bottle of wine or a douzen snails (in garlic butter of course)?! Well I went for the snails so had to cook them (urgh), but as they were frozen it wasn't so bad. I also managed to find a tub of Haribo sweets so got those aswell! He was content with that, but I did say he could have an IOU too!

Anyway here is the card, I think it's a bit plain but it's all I came up with. I used my Cuttlebug, the Penny Black stamp was coloured with watercolours and the rest is from my stash...thanks for looking!
