I always knew we would get old...

This is a card I made and sent to my oldest brother. I wanted to make it fun and interactive, so I adhered some stars to some clear strips of plastic that I salvaged from some packaging material. I glued the other end of the clear strips between the layers of my sentiment panel.

The stars bob and wiggle when the card is moved, so they add a bit of fun. The sentiment was printed with my computer and it was popped up on foam tape.

This is the inside of my card. I did trim that rough edge on the bottom of the card base. It's funny how you sometimes don't see stuff like that until you take a picture.

This sentiment was also printed with my computer. I have set up a form in Word where I can pull it up, add four sentiments, then print and cut them out. It's very quick, so I often use this method for sentiments, rather than searching through my stamps.

This is just a quick post today, as I have scheduled another post for October 5, when we start another month-long challenge at Let's Craft and Create.

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

So cute! Very funny sentiment (but so true!), and I’ve noted the same thing about mistakes only showing up in photos! Lol… thanks for sharing!
