Hubby's Birthday Card

Here I am again, this time with a very special birthday card I made for my Hubby Daemo! It's his birthday tomorrow so I'll let you know how he scores it (he always gives my cards a score out of 10!) We have two cats George & Millie, George is black and white and Millie is ginger and white so that's the two cats on the card, and the Tilda is me, not that I have long brown hair, lol, but you get the idea! I'm going to enter this card in the Just Magnolia Week 34 - Special Monthly Challenge which this month is to create a card for Someone Special, which of course he is to me, very special indeed! We've been together for nearly 10 years now (10 years in February) and married for 5 and a half years but unfortunately it really hasn't been plain sailing for us. I have a very rare blood disorder which has seen me in and out of hospital quite frequently over the past 10 years and then after just short of 3 years trying for a baby and IVF Treatments our son was still born when I was nine months pregnant with him, he would've been 2 at the end of this month so we really have had a tough time. But it's made us stronger than ever, and I know without any doubts that we will be together forever. After everything we've been through and survived there really isn't much left that can try us! So I wanted to make him a card to let him know just how much I love him, and the cats do too, lol! What do you think?
