It's Just a Number -- Crafty Sentiments Designs

Hi Everyone!!
Don't worry... It's just a number!!
Yes, there are only a few days left until Christmas,
but what I really mean is that BIRTHDAYS are only just a
number and you are only as old as you feel or let yourself believe!!

Our theme this week on the challenge blog is: "Birthdays"
and it will actually run until January 6th to give the DT some time off
to get ready for and celebrate the holidays with their families and friends!!

This super cool guy is:  Doctor - Tobey and I couldn't help but make
a humorous card with this one!!  :) When I learned that the challenge was going
to be "Birthdays" I knew that I wanted to go with fun and silly -- kind of like me.  ;) ;)

I hope you like my fun little mini card!!
This week is going to be crazy nuts with family pics,
school room mom stuff like the holiday party, and of course
the regular hullabaloo that comes with the upcoming holiday!!
I really hope that I can keep my head above water this time around... 
It's my first holiday season as a crafter and I don't know how you all do it!!

Here are the colors that I used:
Upper left: hair and shoes --Upper right: khaki pants & headband
Lower left: medical bag -- Lower left: shirt, metal stuff, & shadows

I'm entering my card into the following challenges:
Here Come the Boys: Anything Goes - Boys
613 Avenue Create: Anything Goes/CAS
Artistic Inspirations: #72 Anything Goes
Love to Create: #96 Anything Goes
My Craft Creations: Anything Goes
Seize the Birthday: Anything Goes
Make it Monday: Anything Goes

I wish everyone the best of luck this week with their holiday preparations!!
I'm certain that 2014 will bring lots of new and exciting changes 
and I can't wait to share the news with all of you!! 
This is my last DT required card, but I'm 
hoping to get a few "for fun" ones
in before the end of 2103!!
to all of you!!


  1. This is so lovely sweetie. Your colouring and layout is awesome and that stitching finishes it off fantastically. I am tearing my hair out at the moment as hubby had bought me an i Pad for Christmas and it arrived yesterday and he has let me have it as I need to play to get use to it. Help it is nothing like using a computer/laptop.
