I lamented my pain last year - and shared it in a blog post! - but the earth has done another lap around the sun and here we are again!
I love to spoil my friends with a cake or cupcakes on their birthdays and a homemade card - and this is always fun and a total pleasure to do, except when it comes to my best friend - because that's where the stress comes in! She's not only a Stampin' Up Artisan Design Team member (now a two-timer, too!) but a retired pastry chef! No pressure, right?!
That said - I know she would love anything I made so the pressure is waning as the years go by. I decided to have a little fun this year and make her an old lady card for the old lady milestone birthday she was having. I had to work some hot pink into it, since that's her favourite colour, and the rest is (ahem) history. (Oh, I crack myself up sometimes.)
And this is what I came up with! Hahaha. I wrote a sweet message inside to make up for the mean sentiment on the front. Because that's what friends are for. :) Instead of a cake, I made her waffles for breakfast (complete with an entire spread of condiments - butter, syrup, fresh fruit, powdered sugar, bananas, nutella, and more!)
