Age is only a number

Good morning all.
Well the weather has certainly perked up these last few days, perhaps March will go out like a lamb after all! However all this sunshine shows up the dust and cobwebs so I may have to do some housework! Well perhaps not yet as we have a brand new challenge over at Cardz4Guyz.
This week it is-


You could include a number for a particular birthday or lots, just like I did here.

I had seen a card out there somewhere in blogland where numbers were arranged like a clock face around a circular aperture, can I find it again, can I flip! So if it's you just let me know and I will give you credit for the inspiration. I used a rainbow theme that was inspired by a couple of challenges, The photo at Inspired by all the little things shows a flaming treble clef in rainbow colours and over at MAWTT it is simply the theme of rainbow or rainbows. 
Using little scraps of card I die cut loads of little numbers using my #MFT little number dies and arranged them in rainbow order around a circular aperture which I had cut with a #MFT stitched circle die. The central sentiment was computer generated and the happy happy birthday(STAMPlorations) was stamped in black then coloured with Copics to match the die cut numbers.
OK, that's all from me but for more numerical inspiration check out the rest of the team here, then why not join in.

I'd like to join in over at-
