Hello my crafty friends!  Today I am sharing a quick little birthday card I created just so I have a couple back ups... I did hope to be better about sending birthday cards out and just general notes to friends...but I already feeling myself falling way behind!  Hopefully I will catch up next month...haha oh wait...that's tomorrow :)  I am also linking this cutie up with my friends at Die Cuttin' Divas as their challenge this week is all about cake and cupcakes!  Enjoy!
