Ahh… Thursday is always a good day for me. I had my class at the Store and that was fun! Renee left a little early, she wasn’t feeling well. I got some of my projects finished in between peeps coming in. After work I came home and had some Mac & Cheese that Jim had given me and then he came over around 7:00 and we headed over to Heather’s for Thirsty Thursday. Taylor came by and so did Stephanie, George came home too! We had a birthday cake for Taylor, Carvel, yum! Today it’s finally Friday! Lots of things to do at the Store always, but always fun! 😀

In England your 21st Birthday is a big deal so I made a card for that birthday for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge…

My card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock with the front covered in a piece of Black Licorice. I used the Concord & 9th Barnwood Background Photopolymer Stamp on a piece of Merman inked with Peacock for my background. The numbers are cut from a piece of Merman that I stamped with the Concord & 9th Background Blocks Photopolymer Stamp Set in Peacock and a piece of Chili Pepper to outline them. I adhered them to piece of Peacock with Multi-Purpose Spray Adhesive backed with some more Black Licorice. The 2 and st are adhered to the card with E-Z Runner and the 1 with 3D Foam Squares. All that was left to do was to stamp the happy birthday from the Concord & 9th Butterfly Beauty Photopolymer Stamp Set in Black Licorice and the card is done! A nice different take on a birthday card thanks to the fun sketch from Freshly Made Sketches this week! I hope that you enjoyed today’s card! Thanks so much for visiting! Have a fantastic Friday! 🙂

  1. Happy Birthday, Taylor! I can’t believe you are 21!! Yum to the Carvel cake, lucky girl. Love the way the card is laid out!
    Have the best Friday, Justin and Taylor! Hugs, Nancy B

    1. Thanks for the Birthday wishes for Taylor Nancy! She’s old and dragging me right along with her! LOL! Glad that you like the card! Hugs to you! 🙂

  2. Super card for Taylor Justin! Backing the squares with black really brought the Peacock ink color to the forefront. The layout is fabulous and I bet Taylor loved it. AND a great, big, huge Happy Birthday to her.

    Glad you got to go to Thirsty Thursday and sounds like you had quite a crowd this time around. Good for you. I am taking advantage of having Toni here and she is going to get rid of a bunch of the stamping stuff I don’t actually use anymore. Have a Fabulous Friday my friend. Love and hugs, XXOO 🙂

    1. Thank you so much Grace! I love a little teal and red! Taylor did like the card, she’s not a flowery kind of girl!
      Yup, Thirsty Thursday was really fun! Glad that you had a nice time with Toni!! Love and hugs to you! XOXO 🙂

  3. Wow! This is such a fun take on the sketch! Love the woodgrain background and the nice shade of blue. Thanks so much for joining us at Freshly Made Sketches this week.

  4. Fabulous card! The numbers outlined in red really make them pop and what a great idea to make a number card using the squares. Thanks so much for joining us at Freshly Made Sketches.
