WOYWW #240 - Happy Birthday Card for My Husband

Today is my husband's 56th birthday.  It is also Wednesday, so I am sharing what is on my work desk with you!  As you can see I have been working on making his birthday card. I went with a fun word search stamp that I had for many years by Stampin' Up.  I used a pencil eraser to stamp the ink on it.

Last month I was a lucky winner at Jennifer McGuire's blog and won a dozen Hero Arts Shadow Inks. I was so very excited when I learned I would be getting them and have been enjoying them ever since. A dozen ink pads to a stamper is such a treat! These inky fingers are extremely happy!

Also on my desk is a new stamp set and matching die set I received from my good friend Asia for Christmas.  I am planning to use them next to make a birthday card for a very special friend.

Thank you to Julia for the desk hopping fun!  I look forward to catching up with you today!

This is a great card. I have this same background stamp and fell in love with it from the start. It's such a fun way to send just about any message, and your birthday card will have him smiling, I'm sure.

What a lucky girl to get a new DOZEN ink pads to play with! I have a couple of the Hero Arts Shadow Inks and just love them. Wish I had room for them all, but my ink racks overflow with color as it is. LOL

Stay warm, my friend.

Again, your workspace is so tidy! Imoessive! I love the clean look of this card for your hubby! Happy Birthday to him and have fun celebrating!
Although I don't have that background stamp it inspires me to use my crossword background to create a few masculine cards for my card stash. Have fun with your new stamps and I look forward to seeing that special project. Have a great week!

Hello Winnie. I rather like that card - great fun stamp!!
Thanks for visiting already and for your best wishes for John. He is improving slowly, I'm glad to say. When I told him about your, and everyone's, best wishes, he positively perked up!!!
Take care - I'm all ready for Sunday now, so that's good - but the jumper hasn't grown any!

12 ink pads, lucky you. I particularly like the Hero Arts shadow ink ones because they are really quite unique. Great colours and so useful once you start using them. Can't wait to see what you do with them.

Thank you so much for visiting and for your encouragement.
Happy WOYWW,
