Seize the Cake Birthday Card

Hello everyone!  I am so proud of myself for posting during the school week!  :)  I am going to have to keep this short and sweet, seeing as I am already about 1 hour past my sleepy time!  Before I show you my card for today, I wanted to say THANK YOU to all of my crafty friends who gave well wishes for my mom...  She is doing great (she's tough), she had her surgery on Thursday and was discharged Saturday!  :)  She loved her cards and she got teary eyed (which made me teary eyed)...  My dad is an RN, so he is taking care of her at home... :)  I also wanted to say thank you to Pam @ http://craftycards4u2.blogspot.com/ and Karen @ http://craftedwithlovebykaren.blogspot.com/ for passing the Butterfly Award to me!!!  :)  You guys are awesome and I always love looking at your blogs!  Thanks again!  Okay, onto the card....

Peachy Keen LFIF- use an animal
Fantabulous Cricut- use the color yellow
My Craft Spot- use stitching (faux stitching)
Birthday Sundaes- photo inspiration

Sweet Treats- cupcake cut at 4.25"
Simply Charmed- chick cut at 2.41"
Everyday Paper Dolls- flag cut at 5.12"
Sentiment- Hero Arts Birthday Messages
Peachy Keen Stamps- Critter Faces SET A Medium
Stickles- yellow, star dust

There it is!  Hope you like it and I hope everyone is having a good week so far!  Now it's time for bed!  See you soon...  :)

Glad to hear about your mom. It is always better to be at home with family healing. Your card is adorable. I wish I had more time to craft with school, but I am trying to get into a routine. I think it will be better next week. I actually made some time this evening to do a little visiting. : )
