StampTV CSS Alumni Challenge Blog Hop

It's time for another StampTV CSS Alumni Challenge. This time we were given a sketch to follow. You know I love sketches. :o) 
This is the sketch :



And here is what I made using the sketch.
This was such a fun sketch to play with. I like the cutout half circle. For my card I used an oval instead. The very first stamp set I ever bought from Gina K Designs was this one. It is called "you know your old when". I love the funny sentiments in the set. But what really sold me was the image of the old lady hanging her head out of the Beetle car. That's me in about 40 years. :o)  For this card I used the cute little old bald guy. This is my boyfriend in about 40 years. Isn't he cute? :o)  He is already pretty close in the hair department. But I still love him, hair or not. The sentiment inside the card says, "everything hurts-and what doesn't hurt doesn't work. Happy Birthday!"

If you are following along the blog trail you just came from Melissa's blog and you can now make a stop at Sharri's blog.
