Hubby's 40th Birthday card

Hi crafty friends,

I really hope I don't offend any of you with this card, my hubby thought it was funny. I call him "Pooch" and I'm older than him, he's been teasing me for over 2 years that he's still in his 30's when I'm not so it's just peachy now he's finally in his 40's too hehe.

The hilarious Gus and sentiment are from Bugaboo Stamps, they have some of the best images and sentiments, check them out by clicking on their name above.
