80th Birthday Card

My "old" high school librarian, back in the late 60's early 70's, will turn 80 in August, and his family has organized a card shower for him.  I wonder how many cards he will receive.  This is my contribution.
 The sentiment is a CTMH stamp and the numbers and letters are cricut cuts from the CTMH Art Philosophy Cartridge.

When I left you Wednesday,
 I was in the middle of reorganizing my ribbon stash.
Here's a photo of just some of the mess, dumped out on my sofa.  I spent the last 3 evenings, while watching TV, untangling, unwinding, winding, sorting and discovering treasures.   My husband, when seeing the empty sofa this morning, remarked that he didn't think he'd ever see that sofa again. 
Check out my ribbon stash now....
The 2 plastic containers on each side fit perfectly inside the drawers for storage. 
And all the small pieces, not long enough to wrap around a card, are in my handy ribbon canister.
It sits close to my work area and is my first stop when looking for a ribbon for a card.
I am so pleased with the results, I'm "thinking" of tackling my stash of yarn.
