Bloggers Challenge #84 Birthday




Well, after a long week, it is FINALLY FRIDAY! You know what Fridays mean, Bloggers challenge. This weeks challenge was rather simple, a Birthday card. YOu can never have enough Birthday cards. I have to admit, after a really busy week, with the kids, work, and 2 test, I wasn't sure I was going to be able play. It wasn't until I got home from work last night (10pm), that I decided I was finally going to sit and make a card today. So, I finished my card at approx 1 am this morning, but I at least I got to play.

I don't know about you, but there isn't enough time in the day for me to get things done. As much as I LOVE to sleep, I kinda wish that my body didn't require it. Life would be so much easier if I could have those extra 6-8 hours in the middle of the night when everyone else is sleeping. Well, wishful thinking. I am a person who definatly needs at least 7 hours of sleep a night, or I turn into a pumpkin. So, maybe in a different life.

Sorry about the rambling here, on my card I used one of my WHipper Snapper stamps, and the cupcake Basic Grey 6x6 DP. I wanted frosting to look realistic, so I used liquard pearls and moved it around until I thought It was similar looking to real frosting (what do you think)?

Have a FABULOUS Friday!

I hear ya about not enough hours in the day. With work and family and a myriad of other responsibilities we need about a 32 hour day. Enough of that though. Your frosting is brilliant. I adore this. Very nice.
