Now for a 40th birthday!

Why do I feel old all of a sudden???
'Coz my eldest son was 40 yesterday! OUCH!! LOL
In my head, I'm still a teenager! What happened!! 
Ah well, maybe one day I'll act my age, not my hat size eh!
Here's the card I made for my 'boy'!....
I got the idea off youtube. LOVE youtube, it's taught me loads!
It's from a tutorial video by Kim Burmeister.

Here it is open with a pound for every year...

 I used Kraft card, embossed with a Cuttlebug folder and added some SU DP on the base of the wallet.
The '40' was cut on my Expression.
I added a sentiment underneath the notes.
I also made an envelobox out of Kraft coloured Bazzil, 'coz it was a bit bulky for a normal envelope.
I bet this would be good for Christmas gifts too! Hmmm..... now THERE'S a thought!
Enjoy your Sunday!

Love the money wallet Viv and I too know how you feel my youngest was 39 the other week, my eldest is 41. I just don't feel old enough to have such old kids lol

Such an awesome idea! I love the embossed texture you worked into this, and the slider is a fabulous gift card idea! I've never seen pounds, either. Thanks for sharing and happy belated birthday to your son!!!!
