Welcome to a Surprise Birthday Bash for a fellow’s Crafters Husband.

His name is Chris Pinter who is turning 34 TODAY!!  Hopefully all of the crafty goodness makes his birthday wonderful!

If&n Tahi bsp; sent you over for a visit then you are exactly where you are meant to be. If you just happen to be visiting then you should head over to  for the beginning of this fabulous hop!

I love birthdays, and love to take my birthday off of work.  A few years ago, on my birthday, my now husband and I went snowshoeing and then went and picked out the diamond for my wedding ring, and then had dinner with my parents.  It was a really great day!

I am challenged by man cards but I really like the card I made…

I found this great paper at my local scrapbook store.  It’s Canvas Corp Scrapbooking Paper Black And Ivory Wine And Cheese Sampler, and the herringbone paper.  I cut the apron by hand, and used bakers twine.  The spatula and measuring spoons were from a Martha Stewart cookie baking sticker set.  I used my stampin up punch on the top of the bon appetit tag.  I got  a new camera, and I’m happy with the pictures!

 Hope you like it!
