Friends and Children

Happy Monday!  It's a tired Monday for me even though I got to bed early.  My daughter's birthday was yesterday and we had her party for her.  I am still clinging to the family birthday parties and that meant spaghetti dinner for 25 yesterday!  The party began at 1:00 and we had guests until 7:00 and then the clean up began.
This week's Friends of Speedy TV challenge fits nicely with my weekend.  This week, we are to make a card for a child.  I went ahead and made my 7 year old a birthday card.  She was particularly thrilled that I included a square of her wrapping paper on her card.  It's the floral square behind the wrapping paper and also the cupcake wrapper and the hearts in the frosting.  I did a little bit of paper piecing.
For my card, I used a sketch by Lisa Arana and just extended my flag to include my sentiment!  Now don't forget that Mark's Finest Papers offers a prize for one lucky winner!  This week, that set is called Zoo Friends.  This set is super cute!  Check it out:
Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!

Details - Stamps: Big Cupcake (MFP); Paper: Sweet Tooth White, GKD White, wrapping paper; Ink: Tuxedo Black; Accessories: Linen & Canvas impression plate, square punch, paper snips, Copic Markers, stampin' dimensionals.

I love that super girly card with the colourful wrapping paper and cute pink cupcake. Dinner for 25 sounds very exhausting!
