Happy Birthday Suzy!

Yaaaay, it's party time!!! There was no possible way that we could let our leader's birthday go by unnoticed, so Justine took lead this year in kicking our butts into whipping up some serious fun for Suzy's birthday. WOOHOO!

Of course, YOU get the presents! Be sure to comment on each of our blogs AND wish Suzy a 'happy birthday' by February 22nd for a chance to win a $10 gift certificate to the So Suzy Stamps shop. Winner will be announced February 23rd on the So Suzy Stamps blog!

So I came across the Spellbinders die I picked up while shopping with Suzy and Momma Denise last summer again and knew I had to use it for Suzy's card. It was going to be awesome - whether it was going to be an awesome card or an awesomely hot mess was yet to be determined. LOL In the end it did turn out the way I wanted, but I can hear my dear Mary now telling me how loca I am for doing this...

...but it turned out AWESOME! A shaker card. With sprinkles. And by sprinkles I mean glitter, but it really does look like sprinkles, right? Just don't eat them.

And oh does it shake! Amazingly enough, it also does not leak the glitter...I was worried for a bit and might have held it over the garbage can just in case before I gave it a test shake. But behold the power of stick-it adhesive and five layers of cardstock!

To not detract from all the glitter, I added some Skittles for sprinkles to my favorite cupcake, which is currently part of the Retirement Sale and makes me very sad. It also means that it's 25% off and you have no good reason not to buy it.

I kept the inside a little more simply, but just as poignant:

Happy Birthday, Suzy! May your Coke be cold, the temperature be warm, and the cupcakes be fresh. Love ya!
