19 Years and Counting!

Hi friends,
19 years ago on this day, after 36 hours of labor, a 10 pound turkey was born! Today, my oldest turns 19! No big birthday presents because Mom has given him the gift of paying his college tuition, books, and all expenses--- pretty much! So tonight, we're going to take him out for dinner.

Here's his card:
 This was a pretty simple card for me (I guess those CAS classes are paying off!) I used the stars from Accent It- Rock & Roll Dienamics and the Stacking stars Dienamics from MFT. I took a strip of scrap paper & wrote 19 in each of the dots to personalize it.

Here's a closer peek:
I made sure to have the star focus on the dot with "19th". The sentiment comes from the Journal It- Playlist stamp set also from MFT which is heat embossed in white.

Here's a peek of the innies:
I luuuuuv this birthday stamp set! It is fantastic! It is called Birthday Sentiments by MFT. I got it free last month with my order but it's worth buying.

I used this week's MFT sketch:

Thanks again for stopping by. I'm off to celebrate & have some cake!


  1. My oldest will be 20 in a couple of days! It goes way too fast but it's so fun to watch them grow and mature. Happy Birthday to your son and thanks for sharing your great cards!

  2. Awesome card- yes, tuition and all is a fab present- and as he gets older he will appreciate it even more : ) Love the stars and the 19's- esp the one you spotlighted with the star opening. Fab inside and out!!! My youngest will be 20 in a week n a half.... she has matured into such an awesome young woman!!!

  3. Happy 19th Birthday to your son! Enjoy your family dinner celebration.

    Almost forget--great card!

  4. Happy 19th birthday to you son Karli! I hope that your family celebration was wonderful. It is always so hard to believe that the years go by to quickly. My granddaughter will be one tomorrow and it seems only yesterday that my son and I were going to the hospital.

  5. I love this card! Absolutely fabulous!!

  6. GREAT card! Congrats on being a Favorite Find!
