Preparing for Birthday Week

Happy Friday Everyone!

I hope everyone has a fun weekend planned, and that The Easter Bunny brings everyone their favorite goodies!  This week is big for me - My Hubby's birthday is Thursday and my Daughter turns 2 on Friday.  This being a Holiday weekend has forced me to start their goodies a little early, so that's exactly what I did last night.  Here's the card I made for my Husband's upcoming birthday.

He thinks Cricut cuts are so neat, so while I needed to keep this masculine, I also was 'allowed' to put some cute into it since it is for him.  Right now, I am totally loving the look of Baker's Twine on cards - My twine order hasn't arrived yet, so I found some Sugar 'N Spice crocheting yarn at Michael's that looks like the twine, and used that for the bow and background on this card.  The inside of the card reads Hap-Bee Birthday, the saying that came with this cut from Birthday Bash.

Thanks for looking - Have a Blessed Easter Weekend Everyone!
