40 is fab birthday card... I was inspired!

I love being inspired and this card by Erin Lincoln really spoke to me.  

I've had the photo of Erin's card in my inspiration files for over a year now, but this photo resurfaced on Pintrest recently and I still loved it so much... 

I just had to re-make it with what product I had on hand.

Gosh, I love that inspired feeling. 

You know, when you see something and you pretty much drop everything and you run to your crafty space???

Sometimes I have the desire to craft, but just am not sure what to make.

That's where the inspiration thing comes into play.  ;)

I myself am, *ahem - cough, cough,* past the big 4-0, well a little... but most of my friends are a little teeny bit younger than I.

So one of my special-to-me peeps will recieve this card when the magical day arrives.

Okay, so it's not so magical.

Whatever.  ;)

Hope you've been inspired.

Happy creating!  :)
