Is Umpteenth a Word?

I never thought "umpteenth" was a word.  My mother used it so often when we were kids, that I honestly thought it was her way of exagerating the amount of toys she had to pick up from our messes and the amount of times she had to tell us right from wrong.  "I've told you umpteenth times to stop doing that!"

Thanks to Stampin' Up, I know that it really is a word; it doesn't come up on spell check.  

This week's Merry Monday Challenge was to create a birthday card . . . a little different from the typical holiday card.  I got busy with one of the new Stampin' Up In Colors, some of their new stamps (including the "umpteenth" one) and a new paper stack.  

I stamped on the pattern paper for some added interest, and I combined a few stamp sets.  I am loving that Blackberry Bliss!  

Hope you find time to create this weekend and come up with umpteenth creations.
