Good Morning! Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. My little dog (Punkin) started having a hard time breathing early Fri. morning (3:30am) and we got her in to see her Vet asap. She had a collapsed lung due to a collapsed trachea from her coughing so much. The lung had detached itself from the wall and she had pleurisy. We prayed all weekend and had others praying and THANK GOD she came home today. She was in an oxygen chamber all weekend so her lungs could relax and it inflated, attached itself to the wall, and the pleurisy is gone. Bad news is the trachea cannot be repaired so if she starts coughing for any reason it could happen again. We haven't been able to pinpoint the reason for the coughing. We picked her up at noon today (Monday) but she isn't herself - all she has done is sleep. Please remember her in your prayers.Sorry for the lengthy story. Would you believe this card is for my grandson whose birthday was March 5th? There was so much going on personally last month I didn't get it finished in time. I have mailed it and he undersood. This image is "Celebrate" From the Vault by Victoria Case. The cake can be used for any occassion for celebration.

Since it was for a boy I chose primary colors of red, yellow, and green. It is kinda bright but that's okay. He likes bright cheery colors. If you click on the cake you can see the Stickles I used add a little glitz. For the top of the candle I used a little Viva Decor Pearl Pen. The image was colored with Copics. The balloons and tickets are from Whimsy Stamps.
The inside is plain but still bright and I had enough room to write him a message.

REMINDER: Actually 2:
