Scrabble Travel Birthday

I can’t believe that it’s Saturday already! We had a fun day at the CKC Show yesterday! Loads of fun things to look at and I even got to meet my friend Ginger! She is pretty awesome! My sister-in-law Erika text me yesterday to say that her, Daniel and my brother were in the area so we went to the Iron Works Brewery and had dinner with them! That was a very nice and unexpected surprise! Daniel was adorable as always and everyone got big hugs from him! Here is a picture of Michael, Ginger and I standing in the Vendor Faire Area at the CKC Show…

And here is little Daniel at dinner last night…

My card that I have for today is a fun masculine birthday one! The base for today is a piece of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock with the front covered in a piece of Basic Black. My background is a piece of Hello Honey and across the bottom is a piece of Washi Tape with a travel theme. A piece of Sahara Sand is stamped with the “Vintage” Woodgrain Background Stamp in Sahara Sand. I used the Simon Says Stamp Game Tiles Photopolymer Stamp Set and the coordinating Dies to spell out my Happy Birthday, stamped on the Woodgrain piece. The letters are adhered to the card with SNAIL and Foam Tape. I think that card would work well for anyone but especially would be great for a Scrabble fan! I hope that you enjoyed today’s card! Thanks, as always, for taking a little time to come by and see me! Enjoy the rest of your Saturday! 🙂

  1. Good Morning Justin:

    Love the photos. It looks like you were having a great time and getting to meet Ginger was so nice. Then meeting your brother and SIL with Daniel for dinner was a HUGE plus. Daniel, as always is just so adorable.

    Love today’s card and that Simon Says Scrabble set! You find the absolutely best stuff in your travels and I can imagine a gazillion ways to use them. Great masculine card and your idea of popping up some of the letters is absolute genius! Thank you so, so much for always sharing your talents and your life with us. Love and hugs, XO 🙂

  2. I love the Washi Tape! Any details of who makes it? That little Daniel is a hoot! His hair had to be done on purpose…
    I’m so glad you got to get away on this trip. What fun! Stay safe. Nancy B

    1. Thanks Nancy! I got the Washi in AC Moore! I’ll have to check the next time I go there! Yes, Daniel’s hair is always done by his mum! I had a great trip! Hope that you had a nice weekend! 🙂

  3. This is a great, fun card, Justin. I love the wide washi tape with a travel theme, the Scrabble sentiment and the Hello Honey CS for a pop of color. It looks as though your weekend got off to a great start, keep it going as you always do.

    1. Thanks HJ! Love that Game Pieces Stamp Set! I just had to have it! My weekend was awesome! Hope you had a good one too! 🙂

  4. YES!!! I love scrabble, thanks now I need another stamp set, LOL. I cant wait to see your new goodies, hint hint. Seeing your photos makes me want to go to the CHicago Scrap Expo in August, I guess I need a day off of work

  5. Love that you met up with your family. Daniel’s hair is so cool! Glad you enjoyed the show. Can’t wait to hear more about it. As I read the description, male birthday, black, yellow and Scrabble !!! I knew it was going to be a real hit. Super great!

    1. It was awesome to get to meet up with them! What a great surprise! Daniel is just a cool kid! The show was fun but I don’t think that we needed two days, but it was nice to just get away! Yay! Sometimes it’s had to come up with a name for the card! LOL! 🙂

The world works in mysterious ways!! Great show with lots of fun stuff and eye candy.

    1. Hello Rhonda!
