MFTWSC53 -- Happy Birthday, Dan!

Hi there! Today is my hubby's birthday, and I'm showing the card that I made for Sabrina to give to him. I'm using MFT's Pure Innocence - Hello Cupcake. I also used the latest MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge #53 for my layout.

I love that he doesn't mind if I give him a card with a little girl on it (or even there is ribbon or lace on it). Either way, he displays all of my cards on a peg board in his office. Isn't that sweet? He also knows how much I love the little Pure Innocence girl and reminds me of Sabrina.

I stamped, colored and fussy cut her, then added her to my card with foam tape. This sweet image is very fitting as this morning, Sabrina and I (along with the help of our friend and respite provider, April) made cupcakes for him. Sabrina did a lot of the work - mixing, filling cupcake tins and even frosted one for him. This is a big feat for her as she does not like to get her hands dirty. Here's a photo of her holding the one she decorated especially for him (I just ♥ how she is holding it so daintily with her pinky sticking out!).

Here's a look at the sketch and all of the details are in the SCS forum, HERE:

Thanks so much for stopping by!
