Another Year Older

Hi everyone! I feel like I am not being very productive lately. How can it possibly take me the longest time EVER for what should be the simplest card EVER? My card took almost 3 1/2 hours to make tonight :S

Sorry if you are getting tired of another Swiss Dot and cupcake card, but this isn't it - I have more to come later LOL... I can't help myself the folder and stamps are some of my favs!!

Tonight's Challenges: 1. Unscripted Sketches has this fabby sketch to follow:

2. Simon Says Challenge wants "Punches"


2. Creative Card Crew also wants "Punch It". Now Creative Card Crew has a challenge "fortnightly". I honestly do not know what that means. I thought it was bi-weekly but now I am second guessing myself. Any help???

I didn't want to fussy this up too much, as it is for my male boss:

{For the record, I do not speak Polish, but my boss does. It says "Happy Birthday"}

Card Ingredients: Bazzill and Recollections cardstock; Fiskars diamond punch; Inkadinkado stamp; Craftsmart Black and Teal inks; Copic and Crayola markers; Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder; random button, twine, and threads.

Happy Thursday!! Can you believe it is Friday tomorrow again!!??! Oh how I love weekends!!

I think this is very cute! Not tired at all! Who could get tired of CUPCAKES????

A fortnight is 14 days. Actually fourteen nights. Apparently people got tired of always saying fourteen nights so they squished the two words together to make fortnight.

Hi Deanne your card is beautiful lovely colours and fantastic details. A fortnight is 14 days or 2 week's. Thanks for taking part in the CCC Challenge.

Oh Deanne..how could we ever get tired of one of your creations! I love the layers of the punch...just grand...the whole thing is just fabulouso!

Ha, ha! Lots of other people also know that a fortnight is 2 weeks! :) They must be expats like me (or current "pats" LOL!)

Anyway, I love your cupcake cards! I love all the layers on this one!
