A bit of a girlie Birthday card for my brother-in-law!

Whoops! I was making a 30th Birthday card for my Brother-in-law Jim and look what happened......

It's ended up a tad bit girlie! Ha, ha! I meant it to be a masculine green card, but the girlie in me seemed to escape! Still, Jim loves cats (he and Lorna have just got new kittens) and he loves cake!

Isn't the layout for this card fab....guess where it came from...yes, you're right Sweet Sketch Wednesday! Its a fab sketch to follow and I really enjoyed putting this card together, pop over to their blog to see how the DT ladies used it.

Did you read my exciting news yesterday? I'm soooo chuffed, I'm going to be chatting about it for ages!

Finally I've got some more baking to share with you....hope you're ready for rumbly tummies....I can vouch that these butter biscuits are very tasty!

I decided I wanted to make pretty biscuits.....and discovered that not only can I not cut out circles from paper, but I also can't ice them on biscuits! Hee, hee!

Happy 30th Birthday Jim!

Thanks for popping by today, hope to see you again soon!

Hello Wedgie, First I want to congratulate you on your DT position! Your card this week is adorable too. I love those kittens! I think your pink is just fine as I have never seen a guy pass up pink frosting on a cookie or cupcake so it should be fine on a card! Your little cookies look so yummy! Hugs! Judi SSW DT
