A boy card

Hello!

A quick post for a quick card tonight. I played with my new die Papertrey Ink Text Block: Birthday. This has to be the quickest way to make a birthday card! This card was made for a friend of my daughter's. He's an 11 year old boy, so no bling or flowers allowed. ;-)
The tricky part was figuring out how to stick down the little pieces. I have come to the conclusion that I need a Xyron. The patterned paper is Stampin' Up! It's current, but I forget it's name...

Tonight I baked banana and raspberry cupcakes for the kids' afternoon teas. I usually make banana cake, but I was short on bananas, so I added raspberries to bulk out the fruit content. Oh YUM! :-)

Thank-you for coming by to visit!

Perfect for a guy! I'd have been saying a lot of bad words trying to stick that together! LOL! And those cupcakes sounds super yummo!

This is fabulous. Love your two solids and the patterned paper behind. I think I just got that paper, too. From SU.....hmmmm. Anyway, get a Xyron--you will not regret it. I don't know if you have Michaels, but if you do and you have a coupon, they are not too bad.
