Masculine Birthday

Has everyone come up for air yet after the holiday hustle and bustle?  Hopefully, you've all had a blessed Christmas...I know, I did!  For me, it's all about good times with family and friends...good food and the most important reason for the season - the celebration of Jesus' birth and the hope we can have in the Lord!  It's also extra special for me because the rehabilitation center where I work shuts down over Christmas and this year we had 3 glorious weeks off!!!  Not many nursing jobs allow you to be off that amount of time - if any - over a big holiday.  

So...I finally got some crafty time yesterday and today.  Three cards were for design team obligations,
but I also needed a masculine birthday card for my brother, so this card will head his way on Monday.  I used the layout (flipped version) for the current Freshly Made Sketches challenge and paper pieced the cupcake after stamping in black and clear embossing.  Papers are all from Simple Stories' "Color Vibe 1" Snap pad.  Stamps are from a set called Small Packages by Verve.  

That's all from me today...thanks for stopping by!
