SPDSS44 Huckleberry Finn Birthday

Hi everyone!  A busy Saturday planned, so I'll make this quick!  I found the Sugar Pea Designs blog via my Paper Players teammate Claire, and they have a set of cute sketches this month!  Here's their latest one (you can win prizes if you play along!):

My nephew's birthday is coming up; he's in the Navy ROTC program at Drexel, and although this isn't a naval vessel, I thought he might enjoy the "adventurous" theme from this Huckleberry Finn set by Artistic Outpost:

In hindsight, I wish I had stamped the riverboat in Early Espresso....the brown DSP looked more gray on my desk at 9:00 in the evening...bad lighting, I guess.  However, I am not redoing it, so it is what it is!  It is stamped in Basic Gray and overstamped  with the Linen background stamp in Sahara Sand:

The sentiments were also stamped in gray, and I added some Gorgeous Grunge speckles in Sahara Sand as well.  This little quote just cracks me up!

The Birthday sentiment from Perfect Pairings is stamped on the inside with Lost Lagoon and Timeless Textures is in Sahara Sand:

Thanks for peeking in today!  And just in case you might have thought Cassidy outgrew her lining-up obsession, no, it is still alive and well:

Enjoy your day and be sure to come back tomorrow for a new Paper Players challenge!


  1. so so sweet ~ love the lining up and all facing the same direction :-) ~ I love your card to LeAnne, great masculine card ~ have a lovely weekend!

  6. Best sentiment ever! This card makesme smile! (and so does the line up lady)

  7. Haha - as soon as that picture popped up I thought......"there she is lining things up again" ;) ;)
    What a great masculine bday card. I really like that image.

  8. Oh what a great card for him!! I think he'll love this boat and your cool design!! I think Cassidy has a future as a military drill instructor!! She'd line them up and make them tow the line!!!

  9. Such a fun card! Love the ship!! Thanks so much for playing along with us at SugarPea Designs.

  10. Hi LeAnne! Great masculine card! I love the quote - never seen this set before and it really got me thinking about the book. Feeling nostalgic now! I love that you stamped on the pattern paper too!
