Happy 39!

Quick and simple birthday card. Just trying to get it out in the mail on time. And I wanted to use my new PTI stamp set. Initially I was going to make a little kid birthday card, but then I thought maybe I should color some cute image. I think the Big Birthday Wishes works well for adult birthdays. Who of course like to be reminded of how old they are! :-) Did I pick a rude sentiment? I wouldn't actually send it to a friend, it's going to my brother. I had to think twice about the age, I initially die cut the wrong numbers, geez, how the years fly by as we get older...

Everything is PTI, cardstock and polka dotted paper. The numbers and label are Sizzlit dies. And I used a Tim Holtz embossing folder. I attached the eyelets with my crop-a-dile, and they turned out kind of smooshed. I think the crop-a-dile works better on larger eyelets and the gromlets, or else I don't really know how to use it for the small eyelets. Anyhow, that's OK, I don't think my brother will notice.
Well, I better go to sleep early tonight, I feel like I'm coming down with a cold, but I've been sneezing a lot with an itchy nose this past week so maybe it's my allergies too, I don't know.

I wish I was that far ahead with birthday card making. I know, I don't typically send anything, actually pretty much never, but I wanted to see how the number dies I already had worked with the stamp set.
