It’s the first weekend of the New Year and I have my friend Kim out with me! I went into Manhattan yesterday with Taylor and her friend Kiera and we spent the day at The Ink Pad. There was no traffic at all yesterday even when we got into the city and there was plenty of parking too! We had a good day and I even got to color an image that I used on today’s card! At 6:00 we headed back to the car and went uptown to pick up Kim. When we got back out to my house we decided that we would all go to TGI Friday’s for some dinner and then last night Kim and I watched the 1989 Tour on my Apple TV. This morning we are heading over to Kim & Brian’s for breakfast! A nice way to start off a Saturday!
My card that I have to share with you today uses that image that I colored while at The Ink Pad. I used it to make a nice simple masculine Birthday card! The card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock with the front covered in a piece of Black 110lb. I used a Mini Ink Blending Tool and some Simon Says Stamp Scuba Ink to create my favorite backdrop and adhered it to the card with Fun Foam and Tape Runner. My gold fish is a Leavenworth Jackson Rubber Stamp, I stamped it in Memento Tuxedo Black and the colored it in with Copics before cutting him out with scissors. He is adhered to the card with Foam Tape and a little Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Brush Pen is brushed over his body. My greeting is from the Simon Says Stamp Birthday Messages Photopolymer Stamp Set and is stamped in Versa-Fine Onyx Black. I added a few Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear Sequins for bubbles and the card is finished! I do love that goldfish image and he looks so real colored in with Copics! A nice simple masculine birthday card! I hope that you enjoyed today’s card and I thank you for visiting! Have a spectacular Saturday! 🙂
