Happy Birthday Daddy

I made a card for my son for his upcoming birthday in May from his daughter, Gianna.

The inside:

Finished Card: 4 1/4" x 5 1/2"

Cardstock: White, Green, Yellow and Blue
Free Digital Image ( I apologize, I do not know the creator)
Spectrum Noir Markers
Inkssentials Glossy Accents
Cuttlebug Embossing Folder Swiss Dots
EK Success Paper Shapers Corner Adorner Rounder Punch Large
Queen and Co Pearls, Orchid 2 Small
Embroidery Floss for Bow, Pink
Computer Printed Sentiment

I automatically thought of my son and his daughter when I saw this image. I thought it was so cute.

I used Glossy Accents on the water droplets. I rounded the corners on both image and the sentiment corners and I made the tiny bow from two threads of embroidery floss.

I thought I would enter this into two challenges...Die Cuttin' Diva's (use pastel colors) and My Craft Spot (include a sentiment on the inside and outside of a card).

Some of the family was over for Easter dinner and thought I would share two photos of two dishes I made that I had seen on Pinterest.

These are made from Crescent Rolls and I filled them with chicken salad. (They are suppose to look like carrots).

These are yummy mini chocolate trifle cakes. The top ones are a chocolate cup, filled with chocolate mousse, chocolate cake and then more mousse. The bottom ones have peanut butter in them instead of the first portion of mousse.

We didn't see Gianna on Easter, so when she came over today, we had a little egg hunt for her. I think she had a good time.

Thanks for stopping by.

imagine what you could do...

    Your "carrot" crescent rolls are fabulous! What a clever idea! I'm glad they worked out for you. And those truffles look amazing too!
