Celebrating Fabulousness

I was going to say good morning, but it's just after noon where I am so afternoon, y'all!  I am starting to get very excited...only ONE MORE SLEEP until I get to see STAR WARS!!!  Woo!

And there's another celebration happening:  today is my friend Karyn's birthday.

I'm afraid this won't get to her in time...well I know it won't, I just made it this morning and it has to get to Germany!  But anyway, I try to make her a birthday card that isn't necessarily Christmasy.  This one is still wintry though, and I do admit the red stripes remind me of a candy cane.  Oh, and check out the fiber I used to top my tag--it's more red IRL than it looks in the picture and I've had it in my stash for no kidding FIFTEEN YEARS.  And I only used a little piece of what I have.  It's kinda shiny metallic red wound around black thread, but I thought it would work on my sparkly birthday card.

The colors on my card are from the current Cupcake Inspirations Challenge:

Such an adorable cupcake!  And I picked a stamp that specifically says "celebration" on it because that's the Global Design Project theme of the week:

But wait, there's more!  I used this week's Mojo Monday sketch:

Okay, kids.  Time for me to go put in some more work in the old craft cave...and probably clean the floor again because it rained Monday night.  Cheers, y'all!
