Mojo Monday Birthday Greetings!

I am making my first submission to Mojo Monday. I look every week at their sketches and I have used some of their sketches in the past, but never have I submitted. Too intimidated I guess - a lot of people submit their work there.
I received a call today from a former student inviting me to her home for her birthday party tonight. Normally I don't go, but I love this family and they are so good to me. They are from Lybia and the food is just incredible. Little Zubaida is just darling. So I immediately got to work to put a birthday card together for her.

I used the Mojo Monday Sketch (Week 132) and a new stamp set from Close to My Heart. This set is just so fun. It's full of fabulous birthday cakes and cupcakes. I love the DP paper used from Papertrey Ink - the pad was a gift from my sister. I had originally started this card as an Easter card, but then Zubaida called and it completed changed.

I'm having some issues with photography today. It's bright and sunny outside and in my room, but I can't get the photo to show off the blue rhinestones that I put in each of the cake flowers. I hope that it shows better with the close up.

Thanks for coming by have an awesome day!

Oh yeah - other good news! Today I had my 2 1/2 year check-up and I am still free and clear of cancer. My doctor told me that when I come in October for my mammogram it would be a full check-up and then I wouldn't have to come every 6 months anymore, just yearly! YAHOO!!! I hate having mammograms, but ladies don't neglect them - they could save your life.
