Hi friends, hope you are enjoying your weekend, whatever you are doing. 
I got up this morning and made Ambrosia for a family reunion and five dozen cookies.  Guess what?  The reunion is next Saturday!  OMG sometimes I wonder about me!

A little cooler here today, not so humid, but still no rain, despite the fact that they have been saying rain everyday for a week.  Eventually they have to be right!

Today's card is for the challenge at Sassy Cheryl's it's Challenge # 127 and the theme is
"All About the Boys"

Fun birthday card for a little guy.

Card Recipe

Blogger got me the other night so just popping back over to tell you WOWSERS on your card. Mickey is adorable and I love the shape and stars on the card. Cute little buttons on his pants, just like Mickeys. Hope you enjoyed your ambrosia. Sorry to tell you, but I got such a laugh at your expense. My DD and I have been in a constant state of confusion all weekend.
