Make it Monday – Look Who’s Turning 50 card

MAKE IT MONDAY - FREE tutorial at

While I was in Arizona last week, Sharon and Jackie and I had an amazing time stamping together.  We were all making Birthday cards and I remembered seeing something like an odometer using the Number of Years stamp set.  This is what I came up with.

I sent a picture of it to Mr. Awesome who replied, “Looks good.  Can I sign it and give it to you?”  That man… <sigh>

I really love how this turned out and what I love most is that this card is perfect for the MEN… and we all struggle with cards for the guys, right?

It was just so easy with this stamp set!  Since this set is Photopolymer, I could see perfectly where to stamp my numbers.


Now it’s YOUR turn to create!  Want to work off your mobile device?  Just take it to your stamp space and work from here.  Click the picture to make it larger!

Can I make a recommendation?  Create a file in your “Documents” on your computer and call it MAKE IT MONDAY so you can always find the downloads whenever you need them.  Or, you can always search the Categories (left side bar) and click on Make It Monday.  You will see all of them in one place.

Here’s what you’ll need to create the LOOK WHO’S TURNING 50 card.  Use what you have, order what you need.  Just click a pic!  


These photos just warmed my heart so much!  This was the closing night of “The Sound of Music” and this was the night Christina came to see her sister in the lead role of Maria.  

One thing about the Stewart girls…. we cry.  We don’t WANT to cry but we cry anyway.  The moment that Ginny walked on stage singing “The hills are alive with the sound of music…” Christina was in tears….and yes, so was I.

I know I brag on my girls a lot but when you are blessed with sisters who love each other as much as these two, I just can’t help it.  For so long now it has been Christina in the lead roles, mainly because Ginny is still so young, but this past week was Ginny’s turn to shine in the lead.  Christina just couldn’t be more thrilled to hand over the torch to Ginny at Moore High School.

Is our time on the stage done for a while?  Nope!  lol  Christina just started rehearsals for the musical “Dirty Rotten Scoundrels” (you might know the movie with Steve Martin and Michael Cain).  She plays Jolene, the girl from Oklahoma.  In the movie its a smaller role but on stage it’s much bigger. Jolene is a “not so nice” girl from Oklahoma and she sings all about her love for her state.  It’s a big “belt” song and that is Christina’s  vocal style.  So, the first week in April we will be back to see Christina take the stage.


Life should settle down around here now that rehearsal is over and the curtain has closed.  I am excited to get my stamp room cleaned up so I can get create some videos for you guys in the month of March.

Hope you all have a fabulous Monday!  See you tomorrow for a new 2-Minute Tuesday Tip video!

    Great card. Thanks for the instructions. Have a great week. My theory on celebrating birthdays is the older you get, the longer your celebrate. Happy Birthday today even if today isn’t your birthday!!

    Beautiful girls. You deserve to be proud and brag about them. Love thes interesting personal items on your blog.

      I am proud. I am glad that I don’t bore you guys with stories of life as a Stewart. I sometimes think of my blog as a diary. I do always put this stuff at the bottom so it doesn’t distract from the stamping but I feel like when I am blogging I am sharing with friends.

  4. Dana M says:

    You have every reason in the world to brag on your beautiful girls! Love their sisterly bond.

  5. Claire Ventre says:

    OMG!! How cute is that? TFS!!

    I loved hearing about your girls’ special bond & love for each other! You & your husband should be very proud 🙂 I know they are proud of you & all you’ve done to show them that they can accomplish their goals with hard work & passion. You’re certainly an inspiration to me, and I’m sure paper crafters all over!

    • Connie says:

      Denise, you nailed it. We have worked really hard to show just that to our kids. It’s so exciting as a mom to see them grow up and see them work hard for something. Yes, there are a lot of disappointments along the way. That’s life and we grow from disappointments too. Thank you for your sweet compliment!

    Ooh maybe it was my card you originally saw. I made it back in March 2016 for my son’s 30th birthday. I love your version, so clean and simple.
