Happy Birthday to Randy!


Yes, it's my baby brothers' birthday (actually it was yesterday, oops!) guess how old he is.....51!  and he's the baby.  boy, oh boy does that make me feel old.  Old in age but not in heart. lol!  Had fun with his card using MFP Buffalo Spring stamp set.  Don't you just love that saying.  I know he will get a kick out of it.  Made a card I haven't done in years .... a 3D box card.  I learned this years ago when I was working at a stamp store and taking classes from a lady who taught book classes there but she liked to do BIG and I like small so I shrunk it down to a note card size way back when.  I still have the big Valentine book we made with this design.  It has to be at least 10 years old!!!  I saved it with the instructions.  There are a couple of friends out there who I am sure remember taking that class!  you know who you are.
