Birthday Card Share!!

Happy Friday Blog Friends! and a BIG Happy HAPPY 11th BIRTHDAY to our SWEET AMANDA! (I can NOT believe 11 years have come and gone SOOOOO QUICKLY!!!)

Thought I would share a quick photo... see those balloons.. I bought them LAST Saturday for her party.. I paid $1.44 to have the long life stuff added.. I never thought it would mean SIX days.. really they look like I got them today! Only 1 is down.. he isnt in the photo! :)

Thought I would share her birthday card... When I saw this CUTIE pie at All That Scraps I KNEW I had to have her for my girls card.. Amanda made the CUTE cupcake on the bow (she was excited I used it on her card!) she is so good about making them for me.. I wanted her to have one too! :)
(Challenges I am entering this in are below!)

Close up of the bow/cupcake.. I just LOVE them.. she makes them with clay and my mold.. then I add the clear coat (triple thick in this case!) and glitter...

This is her birthday card from her brother.. I make them make cards for each other for holidays and birthdays.. I LOVE to see what they create.. LOVE that even as a teen BOY he knows what she likes.. CUPCAKES! :) he wrote her the sweetest things too! I am a LUCKY LUCKY mom to have them both!!
That is all I have today.. THANKS for stopping by.. off to fire up the BBQ.. the BIRTHDAY GIRL requested STEAK! and it is BEAUTIFUL out and PERFECT to BBQ!
Have a WONDERFUL weekend!!
