Happy 40th To My Hubby!

Today is my husbands 40th birthday!  We did a family dinner Friday night but his really big present is 3 LIVE hockey games.  

Today he flew to Calgary, Alberta for the 1st  game of 3 to watch Montreal play Calgary in an outdoor game called the Heritage Classic.  It was cold but he had fun!!  

His 2nd game will be on Tuesday when he watches Calgary and his all time favorites Boston Bruins!!  This man LOVES this team!!  He's been a fan since he was a kid.  He hasn't seen them live in over 8+ years.

Which leads to his last game.  He flies back home on Wednesday and then we go to Vancouver for the 3rd game to watch Boston Bruins & Vancouver Canucks.  LUCKY KID!  

That brings me to his card! 

I found this image at Bonibleaux Designs called SlapStick Sal.  I used a rounded pearl for the puck but the image does come with one of it's own.

The papers are from Lollipop Designs and it's actually a digi scrapbook kit but I made it work for me.  I do know she was working on creating a scrapbook kit for all teams.  WOW! 

All the Boston embellies were from the internet.  Oh and I used 2 stamps from Tim Holtz's "Bitty Grunge".

It's getting harder and harder every year to top the last card.  You can only do so many fishing, hunting and hockey cards.  Or can you?!!  Guess I'll find out!!

OMFG, that is OUTSTANDING! WOW WOW! Oh I can see why he loved that card. You should put it in a shadow box for his man den cuz I don't think he's gonna put that one away. So creative with the puck, snicker. Love the way you used the corrugated cardboard with the paper & strings. Eeeexcellent job! SSOA 10X over!
