Happy Birthday Hubby!

It was my husband’s birthday this past weekend and we got away for a long weekend to Budapest to celebrate! It was great to go on a little mini-break from London and we had a wonderful time taking in the sites and food (probably spent more time taking in the latter!).

I wasn’t very prepared with a birthday card and put this together quickly last night when I gave him his present. I went back & forth about whether or not to share it – definitely not my best or most creative card – but still a bit sweet & colorful!

I made this card for the Wee Memories Color Challenge & Lawnscapings Challenge – make your own background paper challenge. I used the star from Lawn Fawn – Bake a Cake to make the background. The rest of the goodies are Cosmo Cricket – my sweet guy loves when I make cards with those cute chipboard critters.

 Here are a couple pictures of us enjoying Budapest!

Thanks for stopping by!

    Glad you guys had a good trip! Looks like it was kind of warm there n? I always think of Budapest as a cold place – not sure why. LOL!
    Love the bright, cheerful colours of the card and that little fox is so cute!

    Great card. Looks like you guys had fun in Budapest!! I’m so jealous you get to live in London. I went by myself in summer 2009 for 10 days. I stayed at the Crowne Plaza near Buckingham Palace. It’s my favorite city in the world. Maybe the next time I get there we can meet for some fish & chips!

    This card is so adorable and such a great background paper you have created. Your chipboard critter is so cute!

    Your pictures are amazing. I’ve not traveled much outside the US, so it is especially wonderful to see my on-line friends traveling and sharing their photos from around the world.

    Have a blessed day!
