60th Birthday

As much as I love to participate in the Bugbaoo Holiday Chaos challenge, I had to concede today that I'm not going to be able to finish this year's challenge. It's okay. I don't need the extra Christmas cards (I don't think). And other things are pressing my time right now. I have a week and a half before my sons come home for the holidays. They will start arriving on the 19th so I really need to step it up and get things done. The card I have tonight was for a friend's birthday. Enjoy!


The sentiment is from Create with TLC. The cupcake image is a freebie from Beccy's Place. I colored the image with a variety of markers. Then I went through my scrap box looking for masculine scraps that would work. I added the ric rac as a little embellishment. I thought I would share the inside too.


The inside sentiment is also from Create with TLC. I added some of the same patterned paper as the front. I am entering these challenges. I am entering these challenges:

Well, thanks for stopping by. I am off to write out my Christmas cards. I sure hope you've had a great day and hold on cause the weekend is almost here. . My weekends are usually busier than my week days. Take care!

Fabulous card Donna, it's sure to bring a smile to your friend's face! I particularly like the sentiment in the middle... might have to borrow that for my brother.
You did a wonderful job coordinating your colours with the background papers, and I love the way you coloured the image, it looks delicious! Well done.
Cheers,
Beccy
