39 again???

I have been so busy... I hope you missed me! We have been battling lots of different bugs around here! I think the only one who never got sick was the dog!! We are all better, except my oldest, but he is a teenager so who knows how long this will take... he thinks he knows everything!

Anyway onto my card. I am so happy with how this turned out. I made this for my girlfriends 40th birthday (today) I was super busy all day and totally forgot to make it until 30 minutes before her party!! Its a good thing I knew what I wanted to make!

SO I started off with a piece of DSP from Razzleberry Lemon aide (item 115675 $9.95) then I used the scalloped edge punch across the bottom. I cut a piece of tempting Turquoise for the card base (11.5 x 4.25) folded in half. I layered the DSP on a piece of Whisper white cs that I stamped "Happy " from Happy everything stamp set ( item 115235 pg 142 $18.95) in Melon Mambo, then I tied a piece of Melon Mambo polka dot ribbon ( item 115611 $9.95) over the top. I made sure the knot was on the left. I stamped "Birthday" from the Happy everything set in tempting turquoise on the bottom edge of the white cs. I wrote "again" using the black journaling pen on a piece of WW and cut it to make a tag.

Here comes the best part.....

For the chip board numbers I used Frost White Shimmer paint ( item 116854 $5.95) and a drop of reinker ( Tempting turquoise on the 3, Melon Mambo on the 9 ) I used about 2 parts Shimmer paint to one part reinker. I painted the numbers using a paint brush. It only took about 15 minutes to dry, which was perfect sense my drive to her party was about 20 minutes away!!

tell me what you think!
