The good thing about being 30 is you are generally in good company. Before you know it your friends will be turning the big 3-0 as well, if not before you.

I have several friends hitting this milestone. YEAH! I’m not alone.

Turning 30 has really pushed me into pushing myself further, and wanting more from life. In a good way. More like making the MOST of life I guess you could say. One of those changes-We found a house we REALLY want to buy. Now comes the dilemma and the possibility of selling our home. BIG STEPS!!!! The market is NOT a sellers market so I have no idea how this will all work out, or if its even possible. Jason has a meeting with our bankers to see where we stand with it all! I believe everything happens for a reason, and if it’s meant to be, it will be. So time will tell. Anyway-I don’t need to get into all that right now. Long story. Just pray we make the right decision and if we do go to sell, it goes FAST!

BACK TO 30 stuff.

One of our good friends Sean, just had his 30th b-day. There was a big surprise BBQ for him. So I had NOTHING done for him and had 45 minutes to pull it all together.

So this was my creation-done in a half hour, including photographing!


I recently got this scrappin kit from my friend Paulette. It was the PERFECT colors for a GUY card. Since I needed a quickie card I used the large sticker as my focal point.

Now notice the “3” and the “0” I used the stickers in the set, and put them on chip board. I used my Red Tag Alpha (cuttlebug) and cut the numbers. Now the “3” has a “0” in the pattern, and the “0” has a “3”. Just a neat little touch I thought.

I used the Papertrey Ink Wedding Day for the month and year. Then Birthday Basics for the sentiment 😀

The rest is ALL stickers. Crazy but I liked it.

We got him a gift card to Best Buy. It came in a CD case (which I contemplated keeping that part! LOL!). I needed packaging to go with my card, and the card was whipped out, so I created a CD pocket to put it in, to match. It was a fast & easy alternative


He seemed to like it all. Mission accomplished with time to spare!! YEAH!

Well I am off to start prepping for my classes on Saturday! There are still spots in 2 of them, so if you can join us, call Michelle!!

Have a great Thursday. I’ll be back tomorrow with a Blogger’s challenge!
