Happy Birthday, Coleman!

Hi there! How are you today? I have a very Clean and Simple card for you this time. I realize isn't THAT different from all my other posts, but I think I left off some bling this time that could've made it a little more interesting if I'd had more mojo. (These hives are still driving me crazy. We brought in the last freshly-painted, two drawers and I ended up with twice as many hives! Meds have been started, so they'll fade soon, I hope.)

Anyway, this card is for my son's birthday. He turned 29 on the day before Easter. Can't believe he's that old! He and his wife had a birthday party where they live in Glendale, CA. Wish I could've been there, but the miles between us are too far.

I used a Sizzix die by Stephanie Barnard at Stamps of Life. All of the dies you need are included in the Sizzix die envelope that comes with it, so putting this together was easy. I used some "sticker paper" on the back of everything I die cut so it would stick without the need of glue. There's lots more you could add to the cupcake, like little packages around it, other candles, etc. Like I said, all those dies are included. I just didn't feel like overdoing it since this was for my son. I signed the bottom part of it where there's just blue cardstock.

Thanks for stopping by today. I appreciate your comments and visits very much, and I hope to see you again real soon ~
