It's a banana type of birthday

I made this card for my hubby’s birthday. Anytime I give my hubby a card, it has to have some “corn” to it. By that I mean, it has to be funny, punny or down-right corny (see the card sentiment). He has a sense of humor that I love and only gets better with age. Ok, enough of that as I’m starting to get mushy and I don’t do mush…much. :)

Of course the card had to have a masculine edge. As my hubby would say, it has to be “Dude Approved” to be good for a dude/man. I decided on a clean and simple (CAS) design but with a rustic edge to it. I used the SCS Faux Wood Frame tutorial to get that edge.

I think it turned out pretty good for my first swing at it. Hubby was happy with it and that’s the most important thing.

You're right, I am not old and if I happen to turn ripe, make some good banana pudding with the chocolate chips in them. I really loved my card and since it's "Dude Approved", I will gladly display it for eternity.
