Oh Happy Day!


They say it's your birthday (da na na na na) We're gonna have a good time (da na na na na)!
Hello, and Happy Friday! Today it's a birthday celebration over at The Greeting Farm...and in honor of our beloved leader and TGF owner Marie turning 30, this Farm Fresh Friday Challenge is to make Birthday cards!
For my card I've used Oliver from the new Oliver and Amelia set. I also tried something super fun by adding candy! I was trying to figure out what kind of candy would be small enough and colorful to fill this little heart window and finally decided on Nerds. I can't remember the last time I bought or ate (yes, I had to try a few!) Nerds. And when I went to the store to buy them the only package they had was rainbow, which turned out to be neon rainbow colors...so I picked out all the orange Nerds to match this card. :) Since my nephew is turning 6 next week I thought this card would be perfect for him!
I hope you decide to play along with us over on the TGF blog! And be sure to check out the awesome samples from the rest of the DT gang! Have a GREAT weekend!

Love everything about this cutie, Kadie, but esp. the coloring on his hair - GORGEOUS! I love the papers and embellies, you know I have sentiment design envy, and the Nerds are perfection! (And I am totally jonesing for Nerds now. LOL!)

I get to hit my 31 this year :/ //// I was really worried about hitting 30 for some reason, lol. It wasn't so bad :)

This card is AMAZING and OH SO SWEET / CUTE! He is DARLING and the heart full of yummy adds such a fun touch. I really must try that one day!!! I do that for my kiddos too. TR loves dino oatmeal, but wants the eggs out. Han likes fruit loops, but not green. .. lol! So sweet of you. :o) That will be an extra special treat.

Hugs to you.
