A whopper of a birthday surprise!

As you know, yesterday was Father's Day.
But, it was also my friend's husband's (Bryce) birthday. He was a bit bummed b/c his two big days of the year fell on the same day. So, on our way home from church, we arrived unannounced and sang (all 4 verses of) happy birthday to him!  Then, later in the evening, they surprised us by showing up on our door stop with samples of his birthday dessert….




 That is a dessert! Amazing..but what else can you expect from Adrienne, the wife of a chef!  
 A* is raving over this desert.  Oh, the hamburger patty is a brownie. 
Since I have decided to be allergic to all things sweet, I can tell you that it looks and smells amazing!   A* is raving over this desert and begging me to try it.



Recently, I created this cupcake shaped card using an SVG cutting file from The Cutting Cafe called:  Sweet Stuff.  If you have an electric cutter, you can really wow your friends with clever shapes, a great sentiment and some fun embellishments.  After I embossed the frosting layer, I painted it with stickles. (Ooh, how I love that glitter.)  Layering embelishments makes a nice touch.  Lastly, I added a sentiment from Pink by Design called Sweet Grams on hand cut banner tags.   (If you have a sweet tooth, you NEED this both of these sets  And yes,  I have several sweet teeth in my head! haha)  All I need now is a bag of whoppers.  Hmmm, I think I will send this card over to Bryce this week with the bag of candies so that his birthday celebration will be a bit longer this year.
