Birthday celebrations

I am back with my promised photos of the wonderful family day we enjoyed on Sunday celebrating my darling son's 30th birthday.

The weather could not have been kinder, it shone all day from dawn to dusk.
My long term blog readers will know that another crafty hobby I indulge in is cake decorating.
Now my son is like me and does not like icing so I decided to make a topper for his cake rather than ice the whole thing.
I made a fun anti gravity cake topper.

We enjoyed a party lunch with lots of laughter and champagne
My Mum and Dad bought Matt a plant as part of his present as he loves his garden.
 Jack unlike Daisy is very partial to cake and ate most of his Dan Dan's!
Daisy wrote her card to Uncle Matt herself.
Do you think I love my boy just a little bit 😄
and at the end of the day we laughed when the last piece of cake was looked suspended in mid air!
I loved having us all together, fabulous memories were made.

My card today is of course Matt's birthday card, made with all my love.
The background is one of the Gelli prints I made recently with my Art Rebel Visible Image stamps. The other stamps are also Visible Image, I embossed the camera in black and the sentiment in glitter gold. 

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges;

Try it on Tuesday 1/3 powder your I have used embossing powder on the camera and sentiment.

  10. Happy belated birthday to your son, Jane. That is a fabulous cake and I was really impressed with the champagne decoration. But of course, the card was out of this world. The Smile really glistened and the camera shined. It was perfect for Try it on Tuesday's latest theme.

  17. Fantastic masculine card. Thank you for joining in the Anything Goes Challenge at Lil Patch Of Crafty Friends and apologies for the late comment.

  18. I stumbled upon your blog post about birthday celebrations and I must say, it was a delightful read! Birthdays are truly special occasions that warrant celebration and your post captured the essence of that perfectly.

    As I was reading your post, I couldn't help but think about how great it would be to send a delicious cake to a loved one on their special day. That's why I wanted to send a cake coupon code for a popular online cake shop that I recently discovered. With this coupon code, you can send a cake to a loved one and make their birthday even more special!
