I created this card for my daughter's 13th birthday. I used paper from the Blossom Paper Pack because of the bright colors and girly look. It reminded me of her bubbly and sweet personality. I made the title black so it would stand out and added black shimmer trim.

I used 3-D foam tape to add layers of dimension on the card. I even added 3-D foam tape under the number 2. I outlined the paper using a black liner and even lined the flower (which came from the Blossom Complements.). I  added sequins and black brads for the final touch. I love how it turned out.

I cannot take total credit for creating my card. I located the card (below) on Pinterest. It was created by Michele Boyer. The moment I seen this card I knew it would be perfect for my daughter.

I used more Blossom Complements for the inside of the card.

I gave my son pre-cut paper, stickers, markers, ribbon, and glue and asked him to create a card for his sister. I was impressed with the card he created. He made it while playing a game on the computer. Making cards is so easy you can create while doing something else... thus multi-tasking.

I love how he wrote his name in big letters... so she would know immediately who created the cute card. He even added the dog Lily to his card.

My daughter wanted an ice cream sandwich cake. It was easy to make. Just 2 layers of ice-cream sandwiches, whip cream, chocolate and caramel topping. Glad she made things easy on me this year.

I asked my daughter if she wanted a party with friends and she said no. She didn't even want one with family. I decided to blow up a bunch of balloons and put them in the front room with hear gift to make it a little fun. She said all she wanted was to sleep in and have a day off from chores and work (she weeds the neighbors flower beds for money). Her wish was granted! Easy peas for me! I love this girl of mine.
