Inappropriate Anniversary Card

I've been meaning to play along with City Crafter Challenge Blog for quite some time and I finally have!  And it's actually a card!  As part of the challenge you had to use paint and cardboard.  Here's  what I created!  I painted the clouds in the background and the cardboard is quite obvious.  My anniversary is coming up so this is a card for the DH.  One of my husband's favorite movies is Quiet Man with John Wayne.  Have you ever seen this movie?  It'a really good, it's actually a romantic comedy, yes with John Wayne!  Anyway, the front of the card says, "Sir Sir," and the inside says, "Here's a good stick to beat the lovely lady."  I know this sounds horrible, especially out of context but there's an insided joke here that my husband will get a kick out of.  And this saying will actually go with the gift I bought him... in a manner. :)
Oh and I also wanted to say that I too am having trouble leaving comments on some blogs.  It seems to only be blogs in which the comments are embedded at the bottom, not the ones with the pop up comment boxes.  Hopefully blogger gets this figured out soon.

Wow, great card! Love the painted clouds in the background. It has such dimension. I've never seen the film but I think 'in jokes' are brilliant on cards - that's why it's good to make your own as they're so personal! x

Love your card, the trees, clouds and cardboard look fantastic! Those inside jokes are the best, we also have a few that nobody else would really understand.

this is gorgeous Lea and I love the story behind it .. your husband will get a KICK out of it .....LOL

about the comments .. I changed over to Google chrome and have had no trouble since ... I was with internet explorer 8, so I installed Google chrome and have gone with that ..my DH says he wouldn't be surprised if Google want all bloggers to use their products.. makes sense as blogger is free !!!
take care and big hugz x
