Seize the Birthday with Texture


Happy Friday, peeps!  The end of the week is finally here!  I was intrigued by the Seize the Birthday challenge this week:  Texture!

I had made this card a couple weeks ago for another challenge but ended up going in a different direction, so this was just sitting on my desk, lost and challenge-less…..but I think it fits for the STB just fine:


This is for my dad’s birthday; he loves to travel and goes to auctions and sales a lot, checking out old planes and plumb bobs and other sundry things!  The Alphabet Press embossing folder was used on the Smoky Slate card, and then I randomly stamped images from Artistic Outpost’s Route 66 stamp set in shades of Smoky Slate, Basic Gray and Stazon Black.  I also used SU’s retired Define Your Life and Timeless Type die-cut letters:


I finished it off with a sentiment from Teeny Tiny Wishes. 

Cassidy and I took a walk couple of days ago to feed the horses and the donkey that live down the road.  She was quite upset because she said the donkey’s nose was running…and did I have a tissue?


Yep, you guessed it….she “blew” the donkey’s nose!!!  And he let her do it, too!  Enjoy your day!
