Happy 50th Birthday Grouch!

Good Ole Oscar!

My best friend Stacey through a Surprise Birthday Party for her husband! He turned 50! Boy was he surprised! He has a recycling business so I made this Oscar garbage recycling card for him. The inside reads "No reason to be a Grouch you're Recycled now!

I made my cuts in Cricut design space and used my Cricut explore. I had a heck of a time getting my computer to accept the plug in and allow me to access all of my cartridge library! Just when I was ready to give up it worked! I sure hope it stays that way!

I used a recycled piece of phone book! yes I still had one phone book in the house!
birthday and numbers are MFTSTAMPS
Paper is MME bright side

Have a great Day! I have been creating up a storm so watch here for some new cards and the Poppystamps release!

I love it! Funny you should mention phone books, just got my new one on Friday. (Which means I can re-purpose my old one too.)
