Scott's Birthday Card

Happy Friday friends! I hope you've had a wonderful week. I'm sure you are ready for the weekend like I am!

Today's card is actually Scott's birthday card and yes, there is a story behind this type of image. When in high school Scott was the judge in the musical Trial By Jury (and hilarious in it I must say). Also, when asked what he wanted for his 18th birthday he said..."a duck." So, I bought a whole bunch of those little ducks from Oriental Trading and had them out for his party and yes, he had friends here for his party...lol! When I saw this stamp at Stamp and Create's store I knew I had to have. Oh, have I mentioned that Stamp and Create is this months sponsor for the Critter Sketch Challenge Blog? Yep, they are and I have a super cute card for you on Monday but in the meantime you should go check out Stamp and Create. They have an incredible selection of stamps and a great clearance section!

No frills on this card as it is for a boy ya know. I did use the sketch from Taylored Expressions again...it just fit the image so well. And I can also enter this for the Paper Sundaes Challenge for this week which is to make a card for a boy. And I just realized this would work for the free for all challenge on Wee Memories this week...yay!

Oh, I forgot to tell you that on the inside it says "A Happy Birthday." A simple but perfectly suited card...love it when that works out!

So...I hope you all have a wonderful

LOVE THIS card Lorie!! I bet Scott loved it too! =D My gramma passed away when I was only a freshman in HS but one thing she always use to say was "That's just ducky!" LOL - even way back then... kinda funny! ALways stuck with me. That's awesome that he was in musicals. i hope my girls do that in HS too. Maddy would be so good as an actress--she's got LOTS of practice already ;P LOL
