The Card You Send When Someone Doesn't Want To Turn 40!

Last Saturday night I went to a girl's night out for a friend who's turning 40 this week - but like a lot of people she's not sure about admitting to the number. The evening out was labelled a "say good-bye to 39" party - so I decided to use this cute image from Just INKlined for her birthday card and remind her that she would be 39+. I used one of my cuttlebug alphabets to cut out the numbers and then glittered them up with some stickles. I also used my glaze pen to give him a shiny wet nose.

This little guy is called "Scamp Special Delivery" and is available for purchase HERE. He's soooo cute and you can use him to send any message you like! Luckily my friend got a good giggle out of this - or maybe it was the 40s survival package I put together for her - which included an LARGE box of chocolates and a bottle of my favourite strawberry champagne.

Love this little cuddly pal! And ... what a sweet friend to try and help your friend stay 39+! I hated turning 30 ... but 40 was even worse! Not yet to 50 ... but I think I will want to hibernate that one ... and miss it altogether! Hugs Andrea xx
