Long Suffering Husband

I am sure like many crafters, I am married to a very understanding man who supports me to no end when it comes to my card making, even more so that it has turned into a slight obsession with my entry into Blog Land.
I also have a confession to make - quite often I am so busy making cards for everyone else that he gets overlooked. So this year I decided I would make him a birthday card (its tomorrow) and when I saw Some Odd Girls Pouting Toby I knew he would be perfect for this.
