Not my birthday, i'm way past 40, and would I really want to be that age again, with 3 teenagers and a full time job, i'm happy being retired, and looking after the grandchildren now and again. It is our son in laws birthday on Weds, and we have all been out for a lovely lunch today to celebrate. I find mens cards difficult, probably because I can't use flowers and ribbon, but i'm quite pleased with this one. I have had the stamp for a few years, and never used it (one of those impulse buys from QVC ) and found it lurking at the bottom of my stamp drawer. I used copics to colour, and backing papers are from a pack I bought last year,sorry don't know the make and chipboard letters also coloured with copics

i'm now off for a blog hop before going to bed, and tomorrow must find time to do a challenge card. Thanks for paying me a visit bye for now Irene xx
