Fresh Squeezed Release Week: Take a Number

It's the second day of release week at Fresh Squeezed Stamps.  Today is a basic sentiment set but with a very fun twist!

The idea of this set is basic sentiments and there are numbers for you to include within the sentiment. That way you can personalize your card or you can use different colors to highlight the number.  SO many fun options that I got a little carried away!

Do you see how the numbers can be used to personalize it?  And even though I have four cards, this just a sampling of the fun sentiments.  (I love the one that says "It's ___ o'clock somewhere" but I didn't have a good image to go with it so you don't get to see it today!)

I did pair each of the sentiments with a little flair from Breath of Fresh Flair.

Here's a close-up of each card. (I have the worst time photographing glitter - but the funky look on each "flair" is actually a little heat & emboss sticky powder then covered with glitter.)

There's a sad story with this next card.  It actually wasn't planned.  There's an entirely different sentiment in the new set Take a Number that says "you are __1__ of a kind".  Then there's a great stamp in Breath of Fresh Flair that includes four birds sitting on a wire.  Wouldn't it be cute to combine those two and then color just one of those four birds a different bright color?  That idea is actually what started my entire idea for this set of cards.  But I got a few of the others made, then reached for the bird stamps - and it is gone.  I don't know.  I've reached a certain age...maybe I had already peeled it off and then set it down and then got distracted and then set other things on top of it - and it's now stuck between pieces of paper somewhere.  I tore my desk apart trying to find those silly birds.  But I was running out of time - and I couldn't possibly show you a set of only three cards - so here's my last minute fourth card!
