Masculine Birthday Wishes

Good Morning!! I have a masculine birthday card to share with you today. The Motorcycle stamp is from the latest SU! Mini Catalogue, I've got a link on the side bar if you'd like to take a look  :-)  The Happy Birthday is from an old SAB set.

The Designer paper I've used is Throughly Modern. This a great paper pack for all types of cards ~ its a fun colour combination that's easy to work with.  I can hardly believe we are almost at the end of a catalogue year and alot of these designer papers will be retiring! Time seems to fly, especially in the crafting world!!

Today we are celebrating my DS's birthday, so I've been busy marinating steaks, (I've been using an awesome recipe for a teriyaki  marinade,) as well as making Greek salad and a German chocolate birthday cake, with the most marvelous icing/spread with toasted pecans....mmm!!! I make all my cakes from scratch now and will never go back to a boxed cake mix again. The Devil's food cake mix that I've made is so incredibly yummy!  Rich, chocolately, and sweet yet still has a slight bitter/coffee flavour to it as well.  Can you tell at all that I'm sooooo looking foward to dinner!! :)

We are experiencing not very pleasant weather here today, its snowing and blowing. The snow is wet and heavy, I've already been out to shake the branches of our trees so they don't get too heavy and break.  I feel bad for the trees, so many have buds just ready to burst but I'm sure they are now all confused about when to open!! We had gorgeous spring weather a few weeks back.....I guess that's Alberta for you. As they say, if you don't like the weather, just wait an hour and it'll change...:-)

Thank you for dropping by and I'm still working on photos of those flower pins, so stay tuned, I'm hoping to get a chance to post them today. :-)

Awesome card! I can't wait to us that stamp! Your cake sounds yummy! I always thought Idaho was the place where the weather changed with a snap of the fingers.... I suppose it really happens everywhere!
