Happy Birthday

Happy Friday everyone! It is nice and sunny here today, just a perfect spring day all around.

The card I'm sharing today is going to a young man who is in the military, serving overseas. His sister put out a request for birthday cards for him, he was recently home for two weeks and was sad that he had to go back again, so she thought some unexpected birthday cards would help to cheer him up. I put a post-it note on the inside and told him to re-use the card, if he wanted to do that. I inked up my acrylic block and stamped onto a piece of white card stock, with different ink colors, than ran it thru my Big Kick and the square lattice embossing folder.

Recipe:

Card stock; Whisper White, So Saffron & Marina Mist
Ink/Markers; Early Espresso, Marina Mist, Real Red, So Saffron & Creamy Caramel
Stamp set; Bring On the Cake
Acrylic Block-B
Embossing Folder-Square Lattice
adhesive
Brads-other source

Hope your day is going great and that you all have a wonderful weekend too..............Mary
