Nifty @ Fifty

Well hello everyone!
I am going to surprise Kathy's husband, Glenn with a belated birthday card.  He turned 50 on Friday and I didn't realize it was "that time" until I saw Kathy's post on Thursday!  (I've been a bit out of my mind with all the work on my plate)  Anyway, he has a great sense of humor so I thought a whimsical card was in order, rather than the normal by sketch type of card.  The only thing I think I SHOULD have done is made the lollipop "flower" grey and black to signal the "over the hill" but I just love color too much...I figured the grey bow was enough. LOL

In this card I used a Memory Box die cut for the sun, MFT clouds, and Unity Lollipop stamp with matching sentiment.  The sentiments "Over the Hil", "50" "Fifty" and "Nifty@Fifty" are Gillian Vance Designs. The "hill" die cut is Papertrey and a cuddlebug embossing plate for the background sky.

I had a great time making this card...I hope he likes it.  Inside I have stamped, "Happy Belated Birthday..I bet all those other fools sent your their cards on time."  LOL.  I feel awful for not having this card there on time, but hopefully the laugh will make up for it.  Well, thanks for stopping by and have a great week.  We are expecting MORE snow this week...I was starting to enjoy the 60 degree weather we had today...  ~Margaret

  1. I really LIKE the comment at the bottom! He will get a kick out of this! The lollipop is adorable! Can't wait to see it in person because your cards ALWAYS look magnificent in hand. Photos just don't ever do them justice! Love all the texture, too!
