Happy Birthday Wishes - SC #180

Today is my baby’s birthday. He is 15. It is so hard to believe. His name is Mitch, and he is a really cute guy! In six months he will be able to get his driving permit. That is unbelievable! The time just flies. For birthdays around here, you get your choice of what you want to eat, what dessert you want, and $125.00. My son chose Pizza Hut pizza, Pizza Hut dessert pizza and the $125.00. Me and his Daddy learned a long time ago that we come out better by giving this gift, rather than a party. Parties are expensive. Sometimes parties can be disappointing as well. This way, the kids seem to be happier. I know I like parties, but I wouldn’t mind that $125.00 spending money.

I couldn’t wait to post my card today. I really love this stamp. It is Patty Birthdaycake from Stamping Bella. (The card was not made for my son, by the way! It was made using the SCS SC sketch from last Wednesday. Thought I better make that clear.) I have bought several of those little fairies from Stamping Bella, and I just love them. Last Wednesday’s SC180 is where I got the lay out for this card. I am just a little slower than I anticipated. (It is called life . . . It sometimes gets in the way of fun!) Anyway, this color mixture is from a card I did at an SU card party sometime back. The colors seem very good together, or at least I think they do. I hope you enjoy the card. Thanks for stopping by, and stop back often! Have a nice day!
