20 Cards in a Tin - Day FOURTEEN - Marquee Messages

Good morning crafty friends!  How was your long weekend?  Did you find any time to create?  I had every intention of getting out in my workshop...organizing it...and creating!  The best laid plans...often go awry! Mine changed for a GREAT reason though!  My daughter and her husband came up to camp nearby and my oldest son just surprised us and came to stay for a couple of days!  On Sunday, after church my son and I took my youngest son and a few of his friend along with my youngest daughter out to Trinity Lake to hang out at "the campsite" and swim!  They took kayaks and tubes and had a BLAST!  I...stayed at camp and had a nap in the hammock...it was WONDERFUL!  We BBQ'd hot dogs and roasted marshmallows...then went home so the newly weds (almost a year now) could enjoy their time together!  My poor husband stayed home...he had the flu...YUCK!!!  It's always WONDERFUL to see my kids!! I'd give up working in my workshop any ole' day for a visit with one or all of them!

Today is Day FOURTEEN of my 20 Cards in a Tin class.  Hope you are INSPIRED!

I'm sharing this card today, because it's my son's 22nd birthday today and I sent this card to him.  It's created using the Marquee Messages stamp set.  I stamped in Memento Black ink onto Crumb Cake and also onto Tempting Turquoise and So Saffron. I hand cut the arrow in Tempting Turquoise and the Birthday in So Saffron and attached them to the stamped piece of Crumb Cake using dimensionals.  I added a piece of ribbon and an embellishment from the Party Animal set (they are on sale for $4.20 right now and will retire after tomorrow). Last I adhered the Crumb Cake piece of cardstock to a Tempting Turquoise piece of cardstock and then to my Whisper White card base.  I think it's a pretty fun card and he'll like it!


Hey...thanks for stopping by today!  Have a FANTASTIC day...enjoy EVERY MINUTE of it!!
