Happy 18th Birthday to my nephew, Coley!

Today is my nephew’s 18th birthday! I wished him a “Happy Birthday” today on Facebook and mentioned that his card would be a WEE BIT LATE! I’m usually (key word here) on time with my cards. This is what happens when procrastination happens. So I grabbed a card that I had made a couple of years ago for a card club and tweaked it by adding die cut digits to it! Brilliant thinking on my part if I do say so myself! Yet I feel horrible I didn’t take the time to make a special card as I did for his 16th birthday!  Well life does go on doesn’t it! I rather like the addition of the “18th” to the card. What do you think?


Here are the cards my card club made back in May of 2014. Notice how I changed card stock colors that coordinated with the patterned paper colors? I used Indigo Island, Summer Starfruit, and Tangerine Tango. The patterned paper is SycamoreStreet DSP (Retired) but you can use other patterned paper! Super fast and easy card! The “happy birthday” sentiment is from a Hostess stamp set called Express Yourself but once again, you can use a different sentiment.

I try really hard to keep up with where I find my inspirations from or from who I may CASE something from so I can give credit to that person. I loved the simplicity of this layout so much that I had to CASE it. Remember what CASE means?

CASE = Copy and Share Everything OR Copy and Selectively Edit

I was inspired by Bekka Prideaux of www.feeling-crafty.blogspot.com. This link will take you to the original post date of August 14, 2013. Like I said, I just loved the simplicity of her card!


I hope you give this layout a try and be sure to visit Bekka’s blog! Well my Sweetheart is wondering when I’m going to be done “blogging”! I had better wrap this up!! Oh and don’t forget about the Retiring List that is out! We all LOVE a GREAT DEAL!! Some items have been discounted up to 50%!
