Happy Birthday, My Love!

Today my dear hubby has caught up with me and joins me at 33!  Yeah!  He can't say I'm older than him for another 7 months; we are both 33!  I loved the sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches and wanted to use it to come up with a quick birthday card for him. 

My to-do-list for the day was SOOO long, so I only had about 30 minutes in my craft studio to get this card done!  I thought the sentiment "bring on the cake" was quite fitting for the piggy and NO I am not implying that Brett is a piggy! lol!  At first glance, the Summer Smooches DSP seems rather feminine, but there are several sides that look masculine enough.  That is one of my favorite things about our double-sided DSP; they are so versatile!  Oh, and how about those googly eyes?!  When I first saw them, I KNEW I would be using them on this piggy.  They give him so much personality, don't ya think?  And the best part is that they are adhesive-backed so no worry about getting glue all over your fingers or project!  One final detail that is hard to see in the pic is the word "cake."  I thought it needed some color, so I added little polka dots in the letters to give it some oomph.  Love the fine tips on our markers for that detail work!  If you are planning on coming to this Friday's Stamp Camp, this is one of the cards we will be making.  Marian, if you are reading this, I know you can always use another birthday card! lol!
