A grumpling party

Hello lovely people,

One of my friends turned 40 a few days ago so we went to a gathering in the pub yesterday to celebrate (commiserate?!).
A lot of my friends are going to be turning 40 over the next 2-3 years...and yes, Dr. Hubby and I are included in that group too!

So, here's the card I made for my friend;

40th birthday card using Party Grumplings from Taylored Expressions

I really don't think he felt this way about it but these party grumpling stamps do make me giggle.   This is the first time I have used more than one of the characters together, using some masking to make a little scene.

I snuck in a bit of my fave corrugated card and of course, I had to put the age on there too!

  1. Kat, I utterly love this hunny! I think the merge of those three wee characters is inspired!! I bet it made your pal smile! I know it would me. Love the paper choice and the corrugated cardboard is so fab on a man make! Brilliant in every way hunny. Happy New Year my friend. I'm so out of touch after last years busy days. So I'm stopping in for a good catch up. Sorry if you get a whole big 'comment dump' from me today, but it's been too long!!! Mwah, Wends xoxo
