Coffee & Spanish fish stew

It’s my hubby’s birthday today and I wanted to make him a card that contained his favourite things and since last year I gave him a card with a guitar on it, this year it has coffee with the intensity of my lust love.  I’m not a gushy person when it comes to expressing my feelings so I’m only going to say I’m lucky to have a hubby like him, someone who cooks when I don’t feel like doing it, does the laundry when he & my son don’t have any clean clothes left, (funny enough my daughter and I never run out of clothes to wear…) walk the dogs, and always supports my time consuming passions.

Miguel's bday card

I used Stamplorations Coffee Cup stencil and 3 different inks for the contour of the cup. I squiggled in the heart of flames with my Zig clean color real brushes and stamped in the sentiment from Stamplorations Dark Coffee set that contains some really cheeky coffee related sentiments which I love. To finish I just rubbed some inks on the sides of the card.

Well its a short post as I have to prepare his birthday dinner with all his favourite foods. I got French oysters and I’m making Zarzuela de Mariscos, a seafood stew but I add fish too as he loves fish. Its a coincidence but this is my favourite Spanish dish too 😉

Thanks for stopping by and have a lovely day!
