Happy Birthday to my Darling Husband

Today is my DH's birthday, but my story begins a couple of weeks ago when I got up to find a poster of an LCD TV on the wall....not a very subtle hint on his part...but bless him he is hopeful!  Since the arrival of the poster, I have been bombarded with requests to look at websites talking about the new 3D TVs.  Well sadly my budget does not quite stretch that far (not to mention that the TV's aren't even available in the UK yet)......so he will have to settle  for the next best thing...a 3D card and a specially manufactured remote that has been tuned to work with his poster!  (That will teach him). Feast your eyes on this latest tech to grace our home...



The 3d card was decorated with stamps by: Lavinia (seaweed), Stampendous (monkey) & Hero Arts (shells).  The brads on the remote control were coloured using Claudine Helmuth paints and Multi Matte medium.

Happy birthday to your DH Cathy.. what a clever idea to create this window card, it looks like a flat TV and the remote control is a perfect pair :) I'm sure he will treasure your darling card forever :)
