Happy Birthday to my Sweetheart on Sweethearts Day!

 

This is for my honey!!  Today is not only Valentine's Day, but it's also my hubby's birthday.  So, Happy Birthday sweetie!
In our house, we very rarely celebrate Valentine's Day, we make it a big birthday celebration.  I'll be making him a Boston Creme Pie as his request was a cake with a filling.  But, the ganache might not be made...Syd & I have been indulging a little in the chocolate chips :-)

I CASE'd this idea off a fellow DT member, Beth Matson.  I loved how she showed that the Sweet hearts set didn't only fit the Valentine's theme.  I needed something a little masculine, but wanted to include Valentine's on it as well so I think it worked out well.  I combined the card with some Basic Grey Origins which my friend Lisa made me buy :-)

Hope your sweetie has a nice Valentine's Day planned for you!

Card details:
Stamp Set: Sweet Hearts from Clear & Simple Stamps
Cardstock: Kraft, Gable Green, Stamper's Select
Inks: Dish the Dirt Brown, Copics
Accessories: natural hemp, Dish All the Dirt Brown button
