Spiced Up Spice Cake


This is a first for me..completing the MoJo Monday sketch on a Monday. I wish I could be more organized and timely, but it’s just not in my nature. In my defense,running a busy farm doesn’t help either!

I have some news!!!!! I’m going to be a grand…( sorry that word is not yet in my vocabulary) or should I say my son and his beautiful wife are going to have a baby!!!! I am the oldest of 4 and this will be our immediate family’s first grandbaby! We are all so excited. My DIL is a twin and her older sister has twins….YIKES! Fingers crossed for just one….sonogram this week.

Lots of layers of Stampin’ Up’s Spice Cake DSP made this card a breeze!  My best friend ( of 35 yrs!) celebrates her birthday in a few days.. I hope she likes this card. The “friend” sentiment is heat embossed in gold, although it didn’t photograph so well.  SU’s antique brads add a vintage touch and the “border’ is the flower from the Blossom Bouquet triple punch snipped in half. Pearls adorn circles punched from the Spice Cake collection.

….and the mess
