HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU, HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU

HAPPY BIRTHDAY DEAR PAT, HOW OLD ARE YOU :) DEAR PAT, HOW OLD ARE YOU?


Yes it is Pat's Birthday today. I wonder if she will tell us how old she is? Everyone hop over to her blog and wish her a wonderful day. Since we are talking about hopping around, you need to check her blog out to see what she has "hopping" around over there.


Here is the card, I made for her, that I DID NOT get in the mail in time for it to be delivered today, but what the heck, I just sent off her Christmas package yesterday. And that's the truth! I can't even remember what is in the box. It has been taped up and ready to mail for over 2 months now. Well I might remember one thing that is in it. Homemade candy, yep it should really be good by now. It is that kind that gets better with age. *wink* Talking about age. How old did you say you were Pat:) I sure am glad she can take teasing.




Pam Bassett at Indigo Studios inspired this card. You need to check her site out, she is amazing. I didn't have that many cupcake stamps, so I Googled "cupcake clip art" and found two or three different ones, then I just printed them in different sizes. I used MS glitter pens to color the most of the parts of the cupcakes, and used Sharpies on the rest. I cut them out and arranged according to size. I added a little cupcake to the center of my ribbon poof. For the base I used purple card stock ( Pat's Challenge, this week) then the next layer is aqua glitter paper, then pink glitter paper. The layer the cupcakes are on is a vellum type paper with glittered mingled colors, that are the same as the colors of the cupcakes. Sorry about the terrible picture. Thanks for letting me share.

You're so funny!! I LOVE LOVE LOVE the card - makes me want to run home and bake cupcakes. Guess I'll settle for that moldy Christmas candy when it arrive. Anonymous is right - way better than any store bought card! How old am I???? How OLD am I?? Now Shelia, you don't aska lady how old she is - BUT, since I've never claimed to be a lady I will tell you I am 60!! Gads, never thought I'd see this day. Thanks for being such a dear friend - love you!
