Girlfriend B-Day Card

 One of my 'old lady' girlfriends is having a birthday in a few days.  As usual, I procrastinated and today I had to rush to finish a special card just for her.  She is an engineer with a good sense of humor so I started the card with an embossed image (Tim Holtz Sizzix) on a blue lined cardstock from a 6x6 pack by American Crafts. The  'Top Secret' was hand stamped with letters from a Hero Arts  letter set.
For the humor part I used an Ai stamp image of an exhausted old lady who looks like she just collapsed after putting up the banner (Clear Hero Arts stamp set).  The tired lady is me and is typical of my energy level compared to my girlfriend who seems to be always on the go.  For me, one craft project seems to take all my effort and brain power. LOL!
Except for the Ai stamp, all the supplies came from Ben Franklin Crafts. I am proud that I made a quicky card that expresses my humor and attitude about birthdays in my old age.  You are never too old to celebrate a birthday......and remember, "Birthday calories don't count!" Thanks for stopping by today. Please leave a comment if you have some time.  I enjoy your feedback.

LOL Lynn. Your friend will get a good laugh from your humorous card. The front is perfect for an engineer. Oh, the inside image looks like me at the end of the day. Ha-ha.
