Shhhhh It’s A Secret!

This part is NO secret, I  have five very special men in my life; my husband, my son and my three  grandsons.  Two of which will be celebrating birthdays tomorrow, January 28th, my husband and my youngest grandson.  It’s hard to believe that a year has past since God blessed us with a miracle of our third grandson, giving Charlie a birthday gift from heaven.  

Now this is the secret, I had been trying to figure out what I could get Charlie (my husband)  for his birthday and I’ve come up with two things.   We are BIG time hockey fans and I was able to purchase him tickets to a Washington Capitals game. 036

What a big game this will be.  They are playing the  Pittsburgh Penguins who are the Stanley Cup Winners from last year……….GO CAPS! 

Now for the 2nd gift which I made and it comes  from my heart.  

I used a  12x12 canvas and  painted it  black.   In case you’re wondering, this is not the gift.  I brought this canvas at a yard sale back in the summer.  019

I used my Cricut and scrapbook paper.014

A metal frame.032

And this is the gift from my heart!  028

Now I have to tell you, my husband is my biggest blog fan so I’m hoping that I am able to sneak this post in otherwise it will be NO Birthday surprise tomorrow! 


I’m posting this to It’s So Very Cheri for Celebration.  Thanks Cheri for hosting such a fun party!


  1. Happy Birthday Charlie!!!
    Tickets to any sporting event seems to be a great idea for guys!!!! He's going to love that!
    And, I love the art you made him!

  2. Happy Birthday to two of your boys!! It sounds like it will be a great b-day for Charlie. He is obviously going to love the tickets and will enjoy the game....but it's the canvas that is the really special gift. That one will be a daily reminder of his birthday and what a wonderful wife he has.

  3. Gail,
    This is great!!

    Wonderful job, wonderful gift.
