Happy Birthday Hubby!

My husband's birthday was this past weekend and he has taken up bird watching.From out our family room window this is pretty much out scene.  He has put up 4 bird feeders and we have gotten a lot of birds, mostly chickadees and there has been a cardinal from time to time.  The window die is from Memory box and the curtain is MS punch. The trees are embossed with black and is from SU's Trees Three. The little red bird is from a stamp set that I bought at Stamped Designs this past weekend from  Impression Obsession-so appropriate. This is my first attempt at a window card - a lot of fun! 

For my husband's birthday gift, my sisters, brother in laws, and a friend Cathy went to our favorite "junkin" places in Dover, NH and Wells, Maine  and found this beer mug. He has started collecting them and this was perfect to add to his obsession!

Russ found this one!
Just before Christmas he started collecting this mugs and now has 34!!! Check out below his collection. It is getting so that he doesn't know what he has and doesn't have.  I am going to put together a book with pictures of each mug so that he can take it with him when we go "junkin".  Some of them are so colorful and tells a little story.  Happy Birthday Hubby! Enjoy!!

The collection


  1. Wow! He does have a great collection! I love the card! I have that same tree stamp! I have to try and make that window card! It is so cute!

  2. I saw this card on Splitcoast and really love how it looks. I need ideas for the window die cut since I have it,too. I think it would make a nice housewarming card.
    Love Mark's collection. It looks great in his man cave. I see more "junking" in his future.
