Michele's Birthday & other fun...

This is going to be a quick post because I have lots to do in preparation for my Book Group gang (and husbands) coming for a cook-out on Saturday.

Today, Mimi & I went to visit our friend Michele and celebrate her birthday. When we arrived, Michele had Constant Comment iced tea prepared for us with honey bear stirrers to sweeten our tea. We sat on her patio with our tea and these goodies....chocolate ganache, white chocolate cheesecake, chocolate mousse and a cookie crust. Decadent but delicious! (No, I didn't make them, Sam's Club is my friend!)

This is what I made for Michele....

a little Birthday Fairy artboard. Everyone has to have a cupcake on their birthday...with glittery sprinkles, and of course, a gold crown. Vicki Chrisman has me loving fairies and I have purchased a number of digital collage sheets from Patty at Lisa's Altered Art. She has great images and always a $1 special on Wednesdays. The Bingo card is a flea market find (I got a whole box of them) and this one actually has Michele's age on it but....I'm not telling!

This is the card I made for Michele, which was my adaptation of this card made by Dawn McVey. I loved the simplicity of it and the dimension of using the butterflies. Thanks, Dawn, I'm always inspired by your cards.

OK-I'm almost done now. Don't you think these flowers are cute?

I didn't buy them in a package......They are a font!Each flower is a letter of the alphabet. You can size them up or down. I printed them in black on cream colored cardstock, cut them out, layered them and used a brad for the center. How cute are they! Flowers, any time you want them! I love it! (my friends all know I am a font freak-I think I have about 550 fonts-YIKES!)

Well, that's it for today. Had a great time with some fun friends.....Happy Birthday Michele!

Until next time.......enjoy!

Okay. YUM! I don't care where you got those chocolate decadan goodies, but I'll take two! What a fun celebration. our BINGO card is darling, I especially love the "Make a Wish" at the bottom! I love playing with fonts, too. What a fun way to use them, printing and cutting them out!

Oooh - I love everything on this post! Especially love that bingo card - nice work. You ought to open an Etsy shop and put a few of those up. Those flowers are neat too - what a great idea!

Very, very creative! Your Bingo card has all of my favorite things: blue birds, vintage type and card, cherries, and a sweet little girl with a cupcake.

So where did you get that font? It is adorable. I loved all your cards. The bingo card is adorable. I just stopped to thank you for stopping by my blog Paper Flowers.
