Eileen's Birthday card!

Good morning! Wow! I'm loving all the nice comments for my blog candy! Thank you so much! There is still time to enter-the drawing will be Thursday, Jan. 15 at 8:00 pm Eastern Time.

I made this card the other day because it was Eileen's birthday! She is a dear friend and she is the aide that works with me in my classroom. We've been together longer than most marriages! 15 years! We also happen to be the same age, well almost. She is 7 months older!

I LOVE the Gruffies so sort of let him stand (well, lay) on his own! I used a silver Spica pen for the candy wrappers. The image is colored with copics. I knew the card should have some ribbon in chocolate brown, but I was working under pressure (as usual) so didn't have the time to figure it out!
The inside has a stamped sentiment saying< "It's your day!" and I wrote underneath "Calories don't count!" Besides her gift I always make her a pan of Tiramisu so this was very appropriate!

Have a great day! Remember to enter on the previous post if you haven't done so yet!
Hugs, Cheryl
