GDT with Pile It On - #16 Smells Like Rubber

Happy Sunday folks!
Today I have another Pile It On 
Guest Designer creation to share with you!

This week it
Smells Like Rubber!
Time to get those rubber stamps out and blow the dust off them.

Today I have used the breathtaking sentiment from the  
that I got from the adorable Sheila at Scrappers Haven.

Despite all the fairy's and butterfly's that come with this set I actually made a card for hubby! 
This last week he just sat a pretty big exam and I thought I would really surprise him with a card out of the blue just to let him know I'm thinking of him.  He will be home in a week so he really won't be expecting this as well witch is great for the added smile and I know he will cry - yeppers my hubby is man that cries and I so love it when I can make him cry with my cards - it is my little sign that I am on still on the mark with his moods.

 I have been coffee staining again this week - the ribbon was originally a pale yellow, the anchor button I am sadly finally departing with from my stash - I have had this button over 2 years! I found it in the park when Chloe was first born and I have always wanted to use it on one of Bens card (being navy, water and nautical and all) but have never felt any of his previous cards were worthy of it, until now!  It is somewhat a sad moment for just a button!

Anyway ... The card is gorgeous and better than I had hoped so I have to be happy!
I would be happier if you came and played along with us this week too!
All you have to do is pop on over to 
and follow this weeks theme of rubber.

Thank you for dropping in to see me and I hope to see you there!
