Happy Birthday Zach!

Today is Zach's 12th birthday! It's hard to believe that he's already 12. Seems like just yesterday we were bringing him home from the hospital. How time flies! My family came up for the day yesterday and we had barbecue brisket, ribs, sausage, pasta & potato salad, beans, rolls, etc. for lunch! It was ALLLL yummy! The best part, though, would be dessert -- CUPCAKES!! We LOVE cupcakes and so I ordered cupcakes from our FAVORITE cupcake boutique Sugarbaby's Cupcake Boutique on S. Shepherd in Houston. If you're in the area, stop by and treat yourself. Flavors alternate on regular basis and each month has one or two "special" flavors (like this month they have my favorite...chocolate covered strawberry cupcake)! You wont regret stopping by! Take a look below at how yummy they look!
Today was an In-Service day for teachers. So, Zach gets the day off for his sweet is that?! Have great day, Zach!

I love the birthday card I made for Zach this year. It is using Close To My Heart's February Stamp of the Month, Piece of Cake. (The cupcake on the envelope is from our set, Cupcake Sprinkles.). I used pieces from Animal Cookies Level 2 paper pack and several embellishments (twill ribbon, natural hemp, Foundry Bookplates). The "Happy Birthday" sentiment that I stamped on the twill ribbon was from our promotion we had during "National Stamping Month" in September and is no longer available, but Happy Birthday set would be a PERFECT alternate you could use. You can purchase these products directly on my website here or you can call or e-mail me directly. Just remember: The February Stamp of the Month is just that...stamp of the month and will disappear after February, 28! We also have a special on our Textured Cardstock Combo packs this month...Buy 1 Textured Cardstock Combo pack, get one FREE. $2 from each promo goes to Operation Smile Haiti.

See...didn't I tell you the cupcakes looked SCRUMPTIOUS?!?! Trust me...they are!! :)
