Lucky 44

My wonderful hubby had a birthday not too long ago and I wanted to make him a card to show him how I thought this was a lucky year for him, as well as letting him know how lucky we are to have him in our lives!

I made a marbled background with Distress Paints and layered it over some red cardstock.

And, since Pho soup with noodles is one of our favourite treats it worked out perfectly! I cut the cute noodles, bowl and chopsticks from the Create a Critter Cricut cartridge.

 I die cut the Lucky and 44 with the Cricut as well and added some Distress Ink around the edges.

 The bamboo shoot was from the same cartridge and I stamped the sentiment inside.

I hope you are all feeling lucky and very blessed for the wonderful things in your life right now. Even on those days that are stressful I try to remember all the amazing things I have and I do feel very lucky.
