Need some help with all those candles?

I made a card for my husbands birthday. He turned 44 over the weekend. And I'm not far behind him in years when my next birthday arrives in April, LOL.

Anyway, I used the Vintage Fan from Doodle Pantry. It is currently still free with any purchase, but only through Nov 24, and then after that, you have to buy it.
I loved the rusty orange color of it. Just looks old to me. And masculine.

OH and Doodle Pantry is sponsoring Fab n Funky today!!!  Do you know it is their 4th birthday??  WOW!  And the theme is anything goes. 

Here's my card. I used the pre-color image this time.
 ...and the inside stuffed with money. Seriously, who doesn't like a card stuffed with money?  He totally forgave me for the sentiment on the front once he saw all the money.
I was going to give him a gift card to a manly tool store, but he said he wanted to shop at another location which I wasn't sure had those available, so I just threw in cash. He needs a drill and some other tool stuff. He loves shopping for tools.  He'd like it if I came along with him and got as excited about tools as he does, but I tell him he'd be happier to shop for tools without me. Not that I can't use or appreciate good power tools, I just don't like shopping for them. I start asking questions like what does this or that button do and asking what this or that term means and he gets all annoyed that I don't already know these things.  So it really is best for the both of us for him to shop for tools alone.
 And that's all for today folks!  I'll be back again with some more items I am working on a little later this month!
Wishing you many blessings this week as you prepare to enjoy next week of Thanksgiving!

What a fun card for your husband, Laurie! I can't say that I would want to shop for tools either, but I think it is because I get confused by them easily ;)

I love this humorous card! They are the best kind. Hope your husband had a very happy birthday!

Love the colors and how it all comes together. I'm going to have to remember to use this, as my husband is "slightly" older than yours and I did happen to take advantage of getting that cute digi set for free.
