Mustache Love



Today's card was inspired by Splitcoaststampers' Sketch Challenge found HERE.  I wanted to make a Valentine card for my husband, and was inspired to use Teresa Collins' "He Said, She Said" dp because of the mustaches.  You see, I met my husband almost 26 years ago, and we've been married almost 24 years, and to this day, I've never seen him without a mustache.  So I thought it would be fun to make a card featuring them.  I even used acetate in the center of my Labels 25 image and diecut shape so as not to hide the mustaches too much.



The houndstooth Labels 25 image and sentiment are both by Waltzingmouse Stamps:  Blessed by You, and Very Vintage Labels 25.


Here's a picture of my husband taken this past summer while vacationing in Kauai.  He's not clean shaven, but shoot, we were on vacation right?  :)  

Thanks for visiting my paper crafting friends!!  I hope you are having a blessing filled day.
Happy Stamping!

Love the card!! My hubby has only shaved his mustache off once in 26 years of marriage and it was when my boys were young. My youngest cried and said 'You don't look like my daddy anymore!!'
