They say it's your birthday....

Yes, they are correct.  Having passed the old speed limit I am now eligible for a senior discount in some establishments!  lol 

So, the cards are arriving and will be displayed prominently in our home .  I created a unique display using a frame that I found in the clearance department for very little money at Michaels .  I'll share a picture with my cards on it in a few days.

I drilled holes along the edges (not as easy as I thought it would be!) and ran fishing line back and forth to hold the cards.  I die cut the letters using Sizzix dies and adhered them to a strip of black paper.  It can easily be changed to read 'Happy Holidays' or 'Merry Christmas' or whatever.  I can also use it as a drying rack when making layered cards.

To everyone who has sent me birthday wishes...thank you!


  1. Happy Birthday Susan! Hope your day was special! Very creative way to display your cards, cool!

  2. That is an awesome idea Susan! Love love love it. Hopefully my card will make it to your doorstep soon!

  3. Oh this is such a great idea! My card should get there sooner or later!
