Happy Birthday Richie!

Today is my hubbies 40th birthday. He is not happy about turning 40 but I told him that age is just a number and enjoy it. He went to play golf with his dad this morning. Tonight we will have a special birthday dinner for him. His dad is making his special lamb and Emilia and I made him his favorite chocolate chip cookies for desert. Emilia and I also went to a paint your own pottery place a few weeks ago and painted a mug for him. This is the card I made that we are going to give him with it. He loves beer so I thought this would be appropriate. I used Lauren's Saturday Sketch to start off with. I created the cup using a real cup as a template and then traced it on to some velum. When I was done with that I sponged on SU So Saffron ink and used Liquid Applique to create the foam on top then I layered it on a piece of White cardstock. I stamped the saying from the Papertrey Birthday Basics set with Versamark ink and embossed it with black embossing powder. The #40 was doing with stickers. Cardstock is Kraft, Bazzill Java and Papertrey Father Knows Best I hope he likes it.
On another note what I thought was my new release Papertrey order arrived yesterday but it wasn't my order. It was for another Terry Moore that lives in Oregon but was sent to my address instead. I am really bummed about this because the quilt set was one of the things I ordered and was suppose to be in my package but it is already sold out now. I have emailed Papertrey but am still waiting to hear back from Juile about this. I have also emailed the other Terry Moore about this too but she has not gotten her/my package yet but it is suppose to arrive today. Once it arrives hopefully we will be able to work something out with Papertrey so we can both get the right packages to each other soon.
Well that's it for now I hope you have a great day and I will be back tomorrow with my card for the papertrey bloghop.
ETA: I added a picture of the cup Emilia made after Rich opened it. He liked it a lot! I also wanted to let you know everything worked out with Papertrey and I got the rest of my missing order Monday.
