75 years young...

My hubby is 75 today!!!!!!  I had fun creating a special card to mark the occasion.  Deboss or emboss?  Can't decide?  Then do both (as seen in Tim Holtz' Creative Chemistry Class 103 on Day 6).  I probably should have lined the center of the dapper gent on one of the vertical lines.  Oh well. 

And then decided our cat needed to get in on the action so he made his own (all right, with a *lot* of help from moi!)  The fish makes the best of those fun and creative ideas that came to me in a flash.
