How can he be 60 when I'm only 39?

Today is my younger brother's birthday.  For this most auspicious occasion,  I pulled out my new Crazy Bird stamps, more of the Sparkle and Shine paper I've been using for Christmas cards and a sheet of blue Fundamental paper; headed to the cricut for some numbers and a party hat; added a few enamel dots and a birthday candle brad; 
then came the hard part.............
I wrote a sentiment for the inside, which I wanted to print on the card base before adhering the completed card front.  This is something I've done numerous times with no problem, except this time.  It took me over half an hour to get our new wireless printer to cooperate.  Makes me wish I could give my brother a good smack, like when we were kids, for causing me so much frustration.  He's always been a bit of a pain.

  9. Giggling at your wish to give your Brother a good smack, because oh how I have wished to do that to my Sister over the years! Wouldn't be without her really though! This is a fun creation and I bet your Brother will love it, and it will have been worth all that frustration with the printer.

    Thanks for sharing in our T for Two challenge.
