Bithday Card for Hubby

Just a quick post of my husband's birthday card today. I totally cased this card from the website. It was created by Debby Yates. That card is no longer on the website and I couldn't find a link to it on Debby's blog, but I put the picture of her original card below my card. Debby is a member of the Simon Says design team. You can check out all of her fabulous cards on her blogspot, They're inspirational.

I had been eying up this Simon Says stamp set for a long time and decided to finally buy it late last year when they had a sale. I usually try to use frog images for my husband's cards as his nickname in High School was "Froggy". He got that name because he was the lead triple, long and high jumper on the high school track team. And yes, I did know him then as we started dating late in our sophomore year of high school. Next year we will be celebrating our 40th Wedding Anniversary.

Anyway, as you can see, he turned 60 this year and I will follow suit in September.
How we got here so fast is beyond me. Life just happens that way.


  1. How CUTE!!! Love all the different frogs!! Happy birthday to your hubby!

  2. Oh WOW this is so cute and I'm over the moon that you feel that my card should be cased. Those frogs are my favourites.

  3. Fantastic card Emily. I'm sure your husband loved it. Hugs, Lainy xx

  4. Oh wow, as soon as I pulled up your blog and saw these SWEET frogs, I scrolled right down to see where I could get them. I'll have to see if they still have these....they're SOOOOOO stinkin' cute! Love the colors and papers too.

  5. Oh how TOTALLY GORGEOUS!!!! Love how fun this is - your hubby will LOVE it - if not send it my way - I can always change the number in the middle - LOL
