Birthday Monster

I had some fun making this card - I really love the Monster Fun set from Hero Arts, and I thought it was perfect for a masculine card... not a big fan of making boy cards.  Anyway, I paired it with a sentiment from THIS set, THESE Thickers and some yummy kraft cardstock. EVERYTHING looks nice on kraft. :)  The card base is Hero Hues Grass Layering Papers.

And my lovely friend Linda and I have had a FAB afternoon today making cupcakes.  We chose a design from THIS book... and here they are!  We were very proud of our afternoon's work.

Isn't he CUTE.  He's supposed to be a polar bear by the way... 
So excited. I leave for the US in a couple of days.
