Blossoms Abound and a Birthday!

The card creation continues, taking time out to celebrate the big boy's 6th birthday! We kept the festivities a little small this year, but he enjoyed some great family time. Despite the 100+ weather in SoCal, we spent yesterday outside playing miniature golf, bumper boats, race cars and lazer tag..... Lots of fun! First, I'll share a card with you....

This card uses some of my favorites from the previous Stampin Up catalog.... Wild Wasabi and Blossoms Abound. Why am I still using older stuff, you may ask? I showed great restraint and waited until just this past week to actually place an order from the new catalog. I'm hoping my new rubbah will be here this week, but in the meantime, I'm still enjoying the oldies but goodies :)

I love making my kid's birthday cakes, and this year was no different. Our big boy LOVES soccer... every day at recess he grabs a vest and plays with the other kids on the playground at school. He has some mad soccer skills if I do say so myself, so what better cake to celebrate his big day than a soccer cake!

After some putt-putt and bumber boats, we needed to cool off with a Blue Slurpee! Here's a shot of me and the boys just before we headed out to the batting cages.
I'll be back in my craft room tonight and hopefully I'll be playing with my new goodies later this week, so stop by to see what I've been up to! Enjoy!

Your card is beautiful! That is one set I don't see too often and I love what you did with the tones of violet. Using my stand mixer again, eh?
