Housework card

Hi Everyone, I have the card I made for my hubby's birthday, I had better explain my reasoning for putting this together.

When I starting working weekends years ago, I asked him to peel the veg and put the meat into the oven, for the Sunday roast. I would do the rest when I got home. However, he did something so VERY wrong, (for him) he had dinner ready for me when I got in from work AND it it was lovely, even though he hadn't done it before, in our 30 year marriage.  I had better add he was unable to work due to his ill health and felt guilty that I was working and he wasn't.

Roll on another 20 years and he still does 90% of the cooking, and has progressed to housework and washing and ironing, as well as the garden and other masculine jobs! he does it SO VERY much better than me. I'm not ALL bad, I help now I'm retired LOL.

Anyhow, this is the card. I laid it all out in PS then layered it onto navy card. Create with TLC had everything I needed to put the image and sentiment together. I also used the iron paper from TLC, the other papers are from Numb Bumm, who no longer has a blog.

I followed this Sketch Saturday sketch

A super card Faith, such a fabulous image and great design.
My husband is a good cook as well - he does quite a lot of the cooking in our house, I do the simple things and he does the fancy ones!

While it's a distressing subject matter (:-), it's a delightfully cute card. Enjoyed hearing the back story, and good for your hubby that he pitched in to help out while you were helping out too! That's a real team in my book. And this was just the perfect card to show your appreciation for what he did/does for you. I LOVE it! (glad you help him out with the house chores now though! After all, YOU are retired!! LOL). TFS & Hugs

Hi Faith what a fantastic card and am sure it will be hugely appreciated. My hubby never cooks as its my passion so he's not allowed in the kitchen but when he does he is so much better than I am ( don't tell him I told you so ) I love the graphic design and the sentiment.
