Turning 90 is a really big deal...

My uncle turned 90 years old recently and this is the card I made for him. I found the playing card images online and simply printed them and cut them out by hand.

The balloons were cut with a really, really old Cricut balloon die. It was one of the first dies I ever bought years and years ago. I also had some old number punches and punched the 9 and the 0 into my balloon die-cuts and then backed them with black CS.

My sentiment was computer-generated.

On the inside of my card I printed the sentiment with my computer and then inked the edges of the sentiment panel.

We had a good time with company over the weekend. They came from Boston, Massachusetts; Jackson Hole, Wyoming; and Brooklyn, New York. It's really fun to visit with folks from other parts of the country. No matter where we live, we have a lot in common!

Thanks so much for stopping by, and remember to laugh--a little or a lot--every day.

Your card is perfect for that special 90 year old. I love the card hand--full house! I sure at 90 your uncle has a full house. Or you could have been thinking of your full house this past week end. Sounds like a fun time.
