Birthday Recap

We had a great birthday dinner with my son last night. The in-laws came in to help celebrate. I thought I would share the card and cake (with recipe card) with you today.

His favorite color has long been orange so I had to include that in the card. A hockey or lacrosse stamp would have been perfect but I am fresh out. Next best thing...a moose with presents, lol. The moose is from CHF's Cool Dudes set, the stack of gifts is from an SU SAB set and the sentiment flag is from Our Craft Lounge. I stamped some retired Karen Foster snap stamps for the "12" onto some cork. I love cork for the guy cards, it adds great texture without being frilly. I used a Quickutz embossing folder for the polka dots. He liked it.

He chose cookies and cream cake, a family favorite especially at birthday time.
The recipe is easy peasy. I made a quick recipe card for my files while I was at it. You should be able to click on the photo for a larger image.
Tonight we go bike shopping, I hope we don't come home empty handed.
