Birthday Gears

Hello and welcome. So glad you stopped by, I hope your week is going well. This past weekend it seemed as though we were slipping back into winter but it's warming up again now.

After perusing Pinterest for hours I finally came up with this card for my 83 year old brother-in-law. After seeing a few cards with gears stamped on them I remembered the old Stampin Up Sense Of Time set. Then my "gears" started working. After stamping the gears all over the cardstock I sort of distressed it using the Tim Holtz distress tool and using a cotton ball and Soft Suede stamp pad. The metal gears, from my stash, were silver so I colored them with a Copic marker. Sentiment is a single stamp I bought at Hobby Lobby. Inside sentiment: "Birthdays are good for you... the more you have the longer you live!"

Thanks for stopping by, please come back soon. I really appreciate your comments. Have a great day.

Take Care!
