Thank You Hubs

I married a man who understands that flowers are for me the perfect gift. They look beautiful, they smell wonderful, and then they die. I consider them the perfect gift because I do not have to clean them, figure out where to store them, use/wear them or exchange them.

During this trip to Maryland, hubs has not let a single day go by without making sure there are fresh cut flowers in the house. As soon as they start to show signs of drooping, he replaces them. I took pictures of individual blooms in the mixed bouquet that arrived recently.

I liked the picture so much it inspired me to make this card as a thank you to hubs for the flowers. I figure since it is a thank you I can get away with the flowers on the card. 

Thanks for stopping by.
