The Birthday Cake, Answer

Happy Birthday

First of all, I’ve been getting emails again on how to subscribe to my blog. If you look up, top right, you’ll see the search box and two icons above it. If you click on the elephant’s butt you’ll be taken to the subscription page. Yes, I have a thing for butts — one of my favorite college time song is by Sir Mix-A-Lot (ha!!). You can also click here. I am starting to feel it, not yet but it’s coming, of the need to update my blog. I like the design just fine but I need to make it more web and user compliant. I whipped this baby up in a few hours cause I was working and all that junk and I want to now dedicate more time to it. Plus, it’s the only way to keep up with my geek skills.

As for the birthday cake… I have this lady friend, Susan, whom I can rely on to ask (silly) questions about Britain, the folks, the culture, etc. She’s my go-to gal basically. I asked her about the cake deal and she said that a lot of times there are food at the party, even a 2-4 p.m. one, and by the time it gets to the cake the kids are full. Another reason would be because they just didn’t have time to eat the cake at the party — too jam packed with activities. Due to the two main reasons parents just got into the habit of putting the cake in the children’s party bags. That seems like a logical answer although it didn’t quite fit one of the last party. M ate ice cream at the end of the party but the cake was in the bag. Susan said she usually serves her cake at the party and assured me that whatever we decide to do for M’s party will be just fine.

Here’s another birthday card that I did. You all better tell me this looks boyish!! I like this the best but I think for a little kid it’s a bit too formal. Whatcha think of the fish? I love this new set, Hooked on You, from WPlus9!! So fun, fun, fun! It’s my friend Kerianne’s first design and I think she did a FABULOUS job!! I love her graphic style, just so clean and solid! I hope she does more in the near future!!

Materials:

Cardstock: Papertrey Ink and Bazzill
Stamp: WPlus9 Hooked on You and Waltzingmouse vintage label #10
Ink: Stampin’ Up! and Copic markers
Accessories: Martha Stewart ribbons and staples
Tools: Cuttlebug template and Crop-a-Dile

  1. Oh my cuteness! This is darling! See, you do boy cards just fine! I love the embossing at the bottom, that seals the deal that it’s for a boy!

    Fun reading about the birthday cakes at parties. In my head, I hear a big announcement on tv in England, “Okay, people, we are now putting the cake in the goody bag at the end of the party! No more serving the cake at the party! Please comply!” lol!

  3. Hi Savatiri..Your card looks beautiful..

    as for the cake
    We light the candles on the cake and all sing `Happy B`day` during the party.Then the cake gets cut then wrapped in serviettes then put in the goody bags for the guests to take home…
    Whatever you choose to do will be fine:)

    Have a great weekend:)x

  4. this card is simple but wonderful. I love the embossed, stapled ribbon and the fish.. very nice 😀

    here, we eat the cake on the spot… lol.. usually not much left to take home :). Eating cake is considered polite, an act of celebration at any party

  5. You totally design rockin’ masculine cards! What are you talking about, my dear? This card is super cute. I agree with Angie Tieman, I embossed part on the bottom adds a great detail. I wish I had that embossing folder. I’ve never even seen that one.

    It’s interesting to hear about things like parties on the other side of the pond.
