She is in LOVE with anything OWL! :) So this is her birthday card I made her this year- (challenges listed below!) The owl itself I found HERE.. it is a cute key chain pattern I just adapted it for the card!
and her birthday cake.. this was a combonation of ideas.. 1 on pinterest, 1 on a magazine and a little of my own! She LOVED it!!!
 Here THREE Birthday Desserts!! Lucky Girl!! HA HA!! :)

This was her SURPRISE dessert on her birthday.. we girls LOVED the Warm Chocolate Melting Cake on our Cruise.. someone in our group shared the link to the recipe.. SOOO I made it.. it was FABULOUS! Tasted just like it! Next time I will take it out at the 15 minute mark! and I did add some Vanilla to it.. other then that.. easy peasy.. and so GOOD! She LOVED it! Recipe is HERE!
