Happy Birthday, Hubster!

 The Hubster turns 60 today and so the card I made him reflects his love for the brass instruments he played in his high school band.
 I had these very old B-Muse collage sheet instrument images. I cut them out and paired them with some Basic Grey Marjolaine papers an assorted alpha stickers.
 The circles were cut using my discontinued old-skool and beloved Coluzzle templates. The blade on my Coluzzle knife finally dulled out, and since I can no longer buy the refills, I'd taken a chance and picked up some Fiskars swivel knife blade refills. This was the moment of truth and I am happy to report that they work great in the Coluzzle knife. YAY!!! (I was really dreading having to face a life without my Coluzzles, but now I don't have to worry, big relief!)
 The inside sentiment, which I wrote and printed out, says, "Strike up the band / On the day you were born / Happy Birthday to the guy / Who can always toot my horn!" LOL He liked it. :-)))
Tonight we are having a private dining party at Cullen's of Houston, a fancy restaurant that is hosting the dinner portion of Houston's Titanic Centennial Exhibit. They have a round room suspended from the ceiling that seats 12, and for $12,000, you can book a private tour of the Titanic Exhibit at Houston Museum of Natural Science and transport by motor coach to Cullens for an authentic Titanic dinner for 12. Sadly, we did not purchase that, but hey, we'll be looking at the richy riches who did and eating pretty much the same food for a whole lot less money. It's gonna be fun.
