Happy Birthday Patrick!


{Pat with his brothers:  Mike, Pat, Sean and Tim...sharing a beer on Easter weekend.}

Hello there!  I'm popping in to wish my hubby a happy, happy birthday!  We're in Nashville for the show choir nationals competition so we'll have a fun time celebrating his birthday with friends tonight!

For Pat's card, I was inspired by Laurie's Muse card below.  I pulled out some of my favorite stamps that haven't seen ink in way too long (PaperTrey Ink's Turning a New Leaf set and Hero Arts French Script for the background stamping...you'll need to look closely!)  I finished it off with the sentiment and some Hero Arts Hero Hues gems.  I love them...need to use them more often!

Here's wishing the best husband a girl could ask for a fabulous 46th birthday and many, many, more!  I love you Pat!

Way to CASisize (I just made that up!) Laurie's card - you've got all the elements, but in a much simpler format - well done! Glad you played along with Muse this week!

Happy Birthday Pat! So he's there too! Perfect! I always laugh when I see the line up of names in Pat's family...the reason why "Maureen" fits so well :) Hugs to the big guy and have fun celebrating. Thinking of you all and wishing Ryan and the choir a great performance!

We're just about to embark on the last leg of our journey back home from Bend, but before we do, I HAD to comment on your card: GORGEOUS! Your husband will love this card: thoughtful, heart-warming, and definitely 'made with love.' Your interpretation of the MUSE card is delightful! Have a wonderful celebration (and how awesome is it that he's a stay-at-home dad!)
