Gosh I am so far behind on cards and ATCs. And I still need to finish the 6th book for my neighbors family. But my little man turned 3 yesterday and that is just more important! When I asked him about 6 weeks ago what he wanted for his birthday, I meant for a present. But his answer was a very excited "I want a Dinosaur Cake" So I just had to make one for him. My dad has a distant cousin who is an expert cake designer. I however do not have that talent. I found directions for this online, and did my best to frost it. Dylan didn't care what the frosting looked like.
He can hardly stand the excitement as I start across the kitchen towards him with his cake.

He starts blowing out the candles before I even have the cake set down.

What a happy guy! And a bit of a grumpy sister.

YAY! WAC A MOLE! He has been wanting this for so long. I found it on clearance at Target.com, it was only $7. something. If you get this for your children you must be someone who is not bothered by noisy toys. He played with this all night, and most of today already. Just pounding and pounding over and over. He really loves it!

Lincoln Tulips Birthday Muse

This was for SC209. The eyes actually stamped beautifully, but whenever I photographed them they got all wavy looking. ??? I used CC199 on this, and IMO it looks a bit Christmasy. But it got good response, so maybe it is just me.
This was CC200, and still SC209. I pm'd Emily and told her there was a great lack of Brilliant Blue in the challenges, so she gave us one last week. YAY!! She said she doesn't like BB, but I love it. I made this for Joys birthday.

This was for SC210. I got this new set from Amazing Arts cause I LOVE LINCOLN! SO I had to have it. Worked out great for the sketch. So what does one do with a Happy 200th Birthday card? This is what :
SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) - A "Happy 200th Birthday" card is tough to find.But that's just what the Illinois Abraham Lincoln Bicentennial Commission is looking for. The group is asking people to send cards to Lincoln for his 200th birthday, on Feb. 12.The 16th president even has an official address with the U.S. Postal Service: Abraham Lincoln, Old State Capitol, 1 Old State Capitol Plaza, Springfield, Illinois.Commission chairwoman Marilyn Kushak says she hopes birthday greetings pour in to Lincoln's hometown from around the world. She recommends that people make the cards by hand.The commission says the cards it receives may be used for displays or publicity.
