Lots to Celebrate! & Fab Friday Challenge <3

So sorry for the gap in postings! I have had family visiting this last week and haven't done much stamping! My mom is my stampin pal and we have only managed to stamp one night.. For about 30 minutes.

In fact, I didn't even make an anniversary card for my husband and our anniversary was yesterday!  Tomorrow is my father's birthday too, so we have had lots to celebrate!  Last night we went out to celebrate both blessings and enjoyed a nice dinner at Matunuck Oyster Bar.  Afterwards, we sang to my dad and ate cake.  I made a candle/cake topper with a matching card and my mother made an amazing carrot cake cheesecake (recipe linked below). What a great celebration!

For the card, I used the colors Soft Suede, Early Espresso and Sahara Sand (my dad's favorite color is brown). The darker DSP is from the Adventure Bound DSP stack.  It's packed full of masculine designs and colors.

Now the layout was inspired by the challenge over at the Fab Friday blog.  I kinda played around with it and moved the bow tie a few times.  I didn't necessarily need it but I wanted it to match the cake topper.

A little splash of Gorgeous Grunge is always good :) that is certainly a set I am glad is not retiring!!

The cake topper features Guy Greetings and Hooray It's Your Day - both from the Occasions Catalog.  It also features the mustache framelit and baked brown sugar bakers twine that are both on the retirement list.

It was a special day for sure and I'm so glad we could celebrate with my dad!  He even kept the cake topper :) 

Now for this awesome cake recipe - head on over here.

Looks yummy right!?  My mom is such a great baker!

So on to the goods:

Remember the retiring products are going fast!  Stamp sets will continue to be produced until late May, but accessories and all other products are while supplies last :)  If you would like to place an order to get those retiring items before they're gone, use the hostess code CE3QVYA2.

As a bonus, if your order BEFORE noon (EST) May 8th, and your order is $30 (before tax and shipping), you will be entered to win a new set from the NEW catalog (valued at $14.95 or less)!  
**Offer open to US residents only.**
