A Milestone Birthday

This Sunday is a milestone birthday for my dear husband, Bill. Men never really care, they say, about their age, so I won't dwell on that. But it was a great time to get out all the Cuttlebug embossing folders and go to work!

I LOVE numbers!!!! So this background one is great for this bday card. The right number has to be in there somewhere, right?

The Birds and Swirls worked out great for the phrase background and of course, you must somehow work in Swiss Dots on most everything! Distress Inks are rubbed ever so lightly across the embossing. Is this fun, or what?????

The stamp is perfect for a man's card from Endless Creations. The days of the week is from Collections and of course the Idea-ology stuff is from Tim!

Happy Birthday to Bill! Another beautiful piece - you are so good at layering and have such a graphic eye - you just lead the eye right where it needs to go. Have fun celebrating!

Amazing card, Linda! Hope turning 30 isn't too hard on Bill (wink wink). A while back you wrote on my blog that your grandmother was from Nebraska - we were almost 'neighbors'.... to make things even more interesting - I was born in Bloomington, IL and then lived in St. Charles, MO - we probably were almost neighbors there too! Have a great weekend!
