My little guy celebrated his birthday this weekend - hard to believe he is 5 already! I think I'm a bit in denial.... In honor of birthdays, a fun little easel card... this is Cocoa Mouse from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps, and I paired him up with Skipping Stones Design's Birthday Donuts. The image is colored with Touch Twin markers (BTW - these markers are still on sale at Blick, and colors are selling out fast... so if you're wanting to stock up on these at the clearance price - don't put it off too long! These are high quality alcohol markers - great blendability, and only $1.89 a piece while stock is cleared to make room for a refillable model within a few months).

Here's the open card....(The text reads: "Birthdays are like donuts... sometimes it is best not to recall how many you've had.")

Hope you're having a great weekend!!

Thanks so much for stopping by!


  1. Best wishes!!!!!
    Have a wonderful day!!!!

  2. Super cute card! Happy Birthday to your little guy.

  3. Love the card and especially the saying. Birthday wishes to your son all the way from Australia :)

  4. Birthday wishes filled with FATHER blessings five years and sweet as 'the love of JC going round and round with no ending to be found' (know that song lyric?) Nice alcho blending pen pink results, delicious for certain! Masculine tasteful embellies give this fun whimsical sweet card many years of application ages. Well done! Great party! nice photo - -blow out the candles.
    Keep Looking UP!
