A lot of my friends have April birthdays. I can’t tell you who this one is for. Is it going to show up in your mailbox?
I cased my card from the Global Design Project Challenge #GDP032.
The color combination came from Pal Paper Arts #PPA297
These flowers are great at giving a card a lot of dimension. Botanical Builder Framelits are a must have item!
#imbringingbirthdaysback By the end of the week, all my April birthday cards will be sent. Better late then never. 🙂
Speaking of birthdays, Super Man surprised me with my birthday present yesterday.
It’s a black iron planter. They have these all over downtown Des Moines. He drilled down into the tree stump to level it. By next weekend it will be full of beautiful flowers. I love it! I actually got two smaller iron planters for Mother’s Day a couple years ago.
We made it through the bike ride yesterday with no incidents, but Super Man’s leg had a run in with the planter as he was installing it today, requiring ice and band aids.
The is Super Man in Water Works park yesterday. Yes, he’s a serious biker. He started doing triathlons last year at age 51, after losing 50 lbs. A friend asked why I call him Super Man. He’s a humble, godly man who tries everyday to do what God is calling him to do. He’s a wonderful (not perfect of course, none of us are) husband and father. He’s smart, funny, and really kind. He likes to make guacamole for me. (Not the most important thing…but definitely a perk!) He’s been my best friend since we were 12 years old and he’s been there with me through all the ups and downs of life. We are celebrating our 30 year wedding anniversary on May 31. There’s no one I would rather do life with. For all these reasons and more, Steve really is my Super Man. I hope all of you have a Super Man too. Give him a hug, life is short.
Here’s our selfie in front of a beautiful crab apple tree. The whole park was full of beautiful blooming trees.
Pat wrote and asked if Super Man cleaned the garage yet? The answer is not yet. Stay tuned, I’m confident he’ll hold up his end of the bargain. Remember he’s wonderful, not perfect. 🙂
