Beary Happy Birthday

Hi everyone,
Hope your week is going well.  We've had more snow today but very light.
I ventured out this morning for an eye appointment 
and was so happy I didn't cough on the poor man. 
 What would I do without Halls.   
Bad news is I need new glasses!!

I've been in the mood to make some masculine cards is my latest.

This House Mouse stamp is one of the very first I collected 
over 3 years ago..and is still a favourite.  
I coloured him with Copics and used Liquid Applique to create the frosting.
I cut a birthday candle and adhered it with Apri's Crafter's Pick that stuff.
The DP and tag are Graphic 45.  Faux stitching done with a fine black Sharpie.
Tim Holtz gridlock embossing folder on one of the panels.
Used K&Company label maker for the sentiment.

Entering the following challenges:
Cardz for Guyz Challenge #55: Let's pretend (faux stitching, frosting)
Ruby's Rainbow #96 - Masculine

Thanks for stopping by,
Pat K xx
