GCA #109 - Milestone Birthdays!

Hello all!!!I've spent a wonderful day in the beautiful Michigan fall weather we are experiencing right now.  Very soon, Old Man Winter will be here and I will not be happy!

The GCA for this week focuses on those milestone birthdays, 5, 10, 16, 21, 30, 50 and so on.  Know anyone with an upcoming milestone birthday?  While my birthday is this Friday, it is not a milestone.  But we all have birthday cards in our stash, but how many do you have ready for that special birthday?

So, for this week you need to create a birthday card that is aimed at a milestone birthday.  Can be for man, woman or child doesn't matter.  And make sure the milestone year pops out at us!

My card I'm working on is for my niece who will be 13 next month.  That's a big milestone for girls!  I used the new Greeting Cards Kids set.  Isn't it adorable??  Normally she holds a Valentine, but I blocked that off and added the "13".  The 13 was cut from the number sheet from the Celebrations dsp.

Upload your creation to either your blog or to an online gallery and post a link to your creation to this blog entry by October 23, 2010 at 12 midnight. I will choose the winner the next day. If you upload your card to SCS, PaperCraft Planet, Stampin' Addicts, Stampin' Connection (for SU! demos) or Stamp TV, please put GCA109 in your keywords. That way everyone can see all of the wonderful creations at once!

Even if you can't make the drawing deadline, PLEASE feel free to participate in the challenges and upload your creations at any time. I would love to see it! And yes, my challenge is open to everyone who visits, even if you live outside the US!

Happy Stamping!!!

Lol, I do actually have a couple of family members who are approaching milestone birthdays (one 60 and one 65). But what do I create when given a milestone birthday challenge? A 16th birthday card! I'm sure my mojo has a cruel, sick sense of humour :P Thanks for another fun challenge :D
Forgot to add my link in the first comment, sorry :)
