FTTC97 Happy Birthday and more!!!

Happy Tuesday everyone!!!

How was your weekend??? Did you get snowed in??? We had a super busy weekend ....we pulled off Mimi's surprise party perfectly....yeah...she had no idea what was coming...LOL!!! She was so happy to see and play with her friends!!! At 6:30 pm that night she fell a sleep on the couch snoring like an elk...LOL!!! On Sunday my In-law's celebrated their 30th Wedding Anniversary with another fun party! All I can say is I'm tired and partied out......I need this week to recuperate!!!

Thank you all for playing my FTTC Challenge last week!!! All of your gift giving ideas were fabulous!!! I loved them all!!! I can't hardly believe it, but it's time again for another Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge ~ FTTC97!!! Maki is our host and she is challenging to a theme!!! The theme is all about *FOOD & DRINK*!!! Create a card or project that showcases some yummy treats either real or stamped! We are looking forward seeing what delicious looking creations you can create!!!



Perfect timing, because I needed a birthday card!!! As promised no more snowmen cards...*giggle*!!! I pulled out the beautiful Let them Eat Cake Set and created a birthday cake with this weeks CR84FN7. colors. I used SU Early Espresso, Cameo Coral and Crumb Cake on my card.


As you can tell I kept the design very simple. The Crumb Cake CS was embossed and I added some Dark Brown Satin Ribbon on the side. I punched out a little flower with the SU Trio Flower Punch and distressed the flower with a Stylus. At last I added the Gold Pearl, the Button with the Gold Beaded Cord and I bedazzled the image with some Glitter...voila!!!

Don't forget to check out ~ Barbara, Betty, Cindy, Dee and Maki's yummy ideas!!!

Thank you for stopping by again today!!! Enjoy your week and I'll see you soon!!! Hugs ~S~
