39 Again - Forever

Oh 39, it's the new 29. RIGHT? Oh goodness, please tell me yes...  Heaven help me, this past weekend my college pals and I kicked off the first in a series of 40th birthday celebrations.  Let me just say, I celebrated 21 with these girls so we go a long way back.


My girlfriend got a god laugh out of this card, it certainly was a kinder gift than the 40th birthday tiara I bought her and made her wear out all night. I'm a little worried about the payback I'll have for that decision...

The new By the Numbers from My Favorite Things is a fabby little birthday set, I can use it for a cute Happy1st birthday card, or use it to create many 39 (again) cards - and any number in between.


I stamped the "3" and the "9" to patterned paper and then trimmed them out.  Since it's a "celebratory" card it is mounted to a Jumbo Fishtail Banner.  The little "you're" is stamped to a Traditional Tags STAX - the teeny one and hung from a tiny bit of twine

Seriously friends, go ahead and add this stamp set to your shopping cart as soon as it comes out Tuesday night. Cards for all ages.  I've got to get a few created for some 10 year old birthday parties coming up soon. Since it's snowing AGAIN here in Boston, looks like I'll have some crafty time to work on my card stash!
