Asher's 2nd B-Day

Good morning! It has been a while since I posted...hopefully I am back in the saddle. I got to spend time stamping last night. It was WONDERFUL! And then I saw a MOUSE!!!! EKKKK! Luckily, he expired during the night in the trap that was set just for him! I really hate mice, unless they are made of paper, of course......


Recipe: Card base-Stampin' Up!, Pattern Paper-DCWV, Chipboard-SU, Image-TMITA, Glitter-JoAnn's, Kohinoor Pencils- Gina K , Dimensionals-JoAnn's
So- on to my card. I spent time out at my sister, Terri's house over the weekend and had made a card for the Asher-man, who is turning 2 in a few weeks. I stamped colored and put a layout together, put didn't glue everything down before bringing it home. Well, then I saw the free digi that Nina at There's Magic in the Air had on Monday. Nina posts a challenge each Monday, this week was to use any of her images and to have sparkle/glitter on the card. The icing on the cake has sparkle, hope you can see it in the picture. I snatched it up and used it instead. His name is Oscar with Cake, isn't he cute! My daughter's boys love monkeys, so it is perfect. There is only on candle on this cake, but it is okay, Asher can't count! Oscar is just delivering the cake to him......oh, and Becky don't show this to him!! :0)
Thanks for stopping by today! Blessings.......
