Stamp Simply Birthday! :)

Did you know it's Sharon's birthday!? ...be sure and wish her a happy one when you stop by her place! ;)

...and it's Stamp Simply time! :) This weeks challenge? Create a birthday card...ok...not just any card....here are the deets straight from Sharon's blog....

"Today is my birthday, my 55th birthday!!! Oh good gracious, how did that happen!!! I don’t feel a day over 25 (most of the time)!!! So today we will make a card that is suitable to give to a Senior Citizen!!! Yes, I know Senior Citizens like ALL types of cards, but today let’s try to make a card that when we look at it we think — gee, that sure looks like an *Old Lady* card — LOL!!! (or Old Man, if you prefer). This is totally open to your interpretation — you could go vintage, you could go humorous, or anything else you can dream up — WHATEVER strikes your fancy!!! Most importantly, have fun!!! Can’t wait to see what you do!!!"

Ok...again...

Happy Birthday, Sharon! :)

This one gave me the greatest excuse to pull out one of my favorite Gina K sets. Take a peek at this.......

I LOVE this set! I opted for monochromatic for this one and because I LOVE the whole sentiment I decided to cut and piece it on the front....I'm to impatient to have to wait to see the whole thing! ;) ...Hmmm....senior citizen.....well, this little guy certainly qualifies...but I am going to share....this will totally be my hubby's birthday card this year! ;) What a hoot! ;)

Ok...now be sure and check out the rest of the SS team..... Julie, Janine, Tammy, Dee, Becky, AJ, and Deb. If you play with this one be sure and upload to your blog and/or SCS using the keyword ssnotime70 ...and then link them to Sharon's blog.

Hope you are all doing well! I will post you soon! :)
