It's the weekend!

It's's the weekend....yaaayyyyy! Here we are again...another weekend....another day closer to .... my birfday woo hoo. Oops...did I say my birfday??? Didn't mean for that to slip out lol. It's ok cuz I'm still on the right side of 40 {wink}!!!! At least I'm not as bad as MP as she was banging on about her birfday for MONTHS before and WEEKS after!

There have been lot of birfday's this month...Suzy Q, hubster, Mil, Sil, Nic and most recently (although it was last week) was my friend Pauline. Our lives are so busy so I only got to see her Tuesday night to give her her card. Here it is....

I hope you're not bored with Magnum & Lily Cupcake Surprise cuz I'm not! As always I used my Copics to colour the image and gave Magnum's party hat the obligatory spots with my gel pen, GA'd his nose, glittered the flames, Lily's hat and the cupcake liner and no cupcake is complete without Fluffy Stuff then finally cutting the image out. My Grand Nesties got put to work again and note this time I didn't cut another front to hide the flat hinge. I guess it doesn't look too bad. I used an embossing folder that has been in a drawer for ages and I'm asking myself why because I'm lovin' it! And what do you think of the border??? That's a Borderability getting it's first outing in over a year...pretty sweet huh. You know I'm gonna sew but somehow I managed to forget to sew the smaller circle hmph. Make sure you take a good look at those flowers cuz they are fabulicious! I love making these rolled flowers with felt...they are so soft. I think they were Pauline's favourite part of the card ... she kept stroking them lol.

You can just SEE how soft there are {sigh}
