It's A Christmas Miracle

Something I never thought I would see, and something my husband said he would NEVER do - STAMPING! Now, he was willing to run the Big Shot, glued a few Christmas cards in his day, but stamping? Never!

While we were making chocolate-covered pretzels I showed last week, he thought it would be funny to cover his insanely-hot peppers from his garden with chocolate and give them to a co-worker. He then informed me he would need a card. Well, I wasn't making it. So, he went into the stamping room and just picked out his stamp set choice and asked for paper and ink.

He refrained from letting me suggest how to dress up the card, but I think he did have fun coloring it. He kept asking for more and more marker colors.

Yes, a smudge. A rookie mistake... we'll let it slide this time.

How do you think he did?

Stamps: Tastes Like Chicken by There She Goes; Paper: Whisper White; Ink: Chocolate Chip, SU markers.

Thanks for stopping by!

Deb said...

your hubby did a fantabulous job...love it all but my question is are those chocolate covered peppers really to eat or just a joke gift. If they are to eat are they good or just "Hot"? Again GREAT Job....

Awesome job (smudge and all) ... my DH would love the humor (and probably the peppers too)! Hope you all have a fantastic holiday and an amazing new year!

Heidi, that is awesome! And he let you take pictures of it too, how great is that. I bet he was just so darn excited about giving his chocolate covered peppers, he knew he needed the right accessories for it, lol!

The card is hilarious! I love his stamp choice. :) I often catch my hubby in my craft room looking for supplies to do something with. His most recent was to paint an eyeball on the outside of an eye patch he has to wear (he has Bells Palsy) to make it more manly. ;) All it did was frighten/annoy the dog...which proved to be cheap entertainment. ha ha ha
