Birthdays galore!


It is busy birthday season in our house. My niece's birthday was a couple of weeks ago, today is my daughter and my husband's birthday and another niece. Three birthdays on one day!
I have been lacking time in the stamp/sewing room the last few weeks. Work has been brutally busy and the garden is starting to need a lot of attention. But I do have a couple of things to share in honor of all the birthdays.


This is a card I made for my 10 years old niece. She's a very "hip" girl so I chose a really bright color combination. Way out of my comfort zone but I had fun with it. Check out the cork star. It was an embellishment sent to me by PTI friend JenniferK. I added some little rhinestones to the star to give it extra pizazz.

Next is my attempt at making Fur Monster cupcakes. I adore making dessert, especially something as fun as this. These are from the brand new book What's New Cupcake. You should see all of the fun things you can make with easy to find ingredients and candy.


We had these for a birthday treat after lunch today. They were thoroughly enjoyed as you can see! It was straight to the tub after lunch. I think just about her entire face was purple!


Have a Monster Fun day!


Supplies for card: All supplies by PTI unless noted. Stamps: Say it With Style, Polka Dot Basics II. Cardstock: Orange Zest, Spring Moss, Hibiscus Burst. Ink: Palette Noir, Fresh Snow, VersaMark. Accessories: White embossing Powder (stash), rhinestones (Kaiser Kraft), white gel pen (Signo), cork start (JenniferK), Hibiscus Burst button, black wool felt.
