Well, if you read ALL the way to the bottom of yesterday’s post or my Facebook page, you knew that yesterday was my 11th birthday.

I’ve already shared a couple of the birthday cards my peeps sent me here, but I never showed the one that Ann made me.

And here it is!

Masculine Birthday Card

She could’ve made the card more manly by taking the Very Vanilla 1/2″ Lace Trim off.  I’m comfortable with that so it’s fine with me.  I don’t need a totally masculine card to feel masculine.

And I like a little bit of bling with the Metallic Enamel Shapes.  Now I know I’m worth full price, but those cool things are 25% off this week!

This card also helped Ann put a dent in her paper hoarding.  Are you a paper hoarder?  Eventually, we all need to use that stuff!

This one came from the Moroccan Designer Series Paper.  Who knew?

And to think that it only needed ONE stamp!

Stampin’ Up! Cardmaking Supplies

Here’s what Ann used to appropriately honor me on my special day.  I think I’ve caught up with Ann in dog years.  It’s not really 7 to 1 like many people think, but that’s for a different day.

This project only took ONE stamp to say Happy Birthday!
