I'm going to give this card to my cousin Sarah who has a birthday coming up next week. Her birthday is two days before mine and she'll be 14. There is quite an age difference (I'm going to be 45). My aunt adopted Sarah from China when she was just about my age. She's a great kid - very smart, beautiful and talented. When she was younger, she won many awards in gymnastics, and she is one of only four freshmen who will be on the varsity cheerleading squad next year. I'm very proud of her.
I chose another of my favorite House Mouse images for this card. I think Mudpie looks so cute passed out on top. I know how he feels. :) I made the little cupcake embellishment with my brand new Martha Stewart cupcake punch. I added Stickles to the top of the cupcake and candles in the image and on the top of the punched cupcake. I'm not sure how well they show up in my picture. The little cherry on top of the punched cupcake is tiny Jolee's embellishment.
