Happy birthday!!

It's my co-worker's birthday tomorrow & I wanted to make her a little something. I don't really talk about my obsession hobby at work, nor has anyone seen anything that I've made. But I've decided to start spreading the love a bit -- & I'm starting with my friend Lou. Turns out her daughter also makes cards & so I figured she'd be a good one to start with :)

Can you believe I've never ever altered a frap bottle? I've *saved* the frap bottles -- about 22 of them -- but this is the first one I actually did something with. The sentiment is from SU's Oh So Sweet -- one of the few SU sets I own. Basically I own any set that has food or hedgies, lol. So yes, the hedgie on the card is also from SU, he belongs to the Hedgehog Happiness set. The papers on both are K&Company McKenna. Lots of seam binding & dies & punches -- oh my!

Close up of the card...I added some shine to the balloon...

I stamped the chocolate from that same SU set for the top - used lots of Nesties & seam binding - & filled it up with pretzel M&M's. I sure hope she likes it!

Thanks for visiting -- have a super week!!

Thank you for your comment on my blog. I see you live in Waukesha. We used to live in Sussex but now live in Kenosha county. Not too far away.

The projects on your blog are wonderful. I look forward to visiting again and again.
