Stack em High

 It was a Happy Birthday to my hubby Frank this week.  One of these days he may just catch up to me (I'm 4 1/2 yrs old.....gasp)!  LOL  I decided to stack some pretend prezzies on top of each other to make a make believe "cake" with no calories.  (I guess you have to use a lot of imagination for this one. LOL)

Life has thrown us a lot of curve balls lately but we're all hanging in there.   Spending lots of time in prayer. We know that the Lord will help us through it all.  Amen!

Back to my card......the papers came from Michael's in their decorative paper was dots & the other damask in various pretty colors.  Manly cards are always a stretch for me but I like how this one turned out.  The baker's twine just topped it off nicely.  The "Happy Birthday" sentiment is from a Crafty Secrets digital set called Grand Greetings you can find HERE.
