A Detective Birthday

Hello my friends. I hope everyone is well and are starting to enjoy the time change. I know I will enjoy getting off work and it will still be daylight.

My son just had his birthday and I wanted to share with you the birthday card, box and cake pic using Jaded Blossom products. So here is what I came up with.

Since I was going with the detective theme I wanted a magnifying glass for his card and box. I ended up creating my glass using my Gypsy, I didn't have a glass in my Gypsy library.  I think I did a pretty good job. The box I made using my new We R Memory Keepers Gift Box punch board.  The little detective was from  the Top Secret Treats stamp set from Jaded Blossom.  I stamped the box with many of the sentiments included in the set.  I decided to add a mustache to my boy to make him look more like a boy. I colored him using my Copic markers.

I put 34 Hershey kisses with almonds in the box.  I used the Detective Candies stamp set from Jaded Blossom. These are so cool because they are just the right size for the bottom of kisses. There are 16 different sentiments and images related to being a detective. By the way, the reason for 34 kisses is this is his 34th birthday. 

I closed up the box and made a band for it. I wanted to put a magnifying glass on the top but could not find any. However, during my search I found these Jolee mustaches, several styles and decided to put that on the top.

Here is his yummy cake. I got this delicious creation from a local bakery in our town called The Sweet Spot. I have to give kudos to them for taking my order and having my cake done the same day. Great customer service. Anyway, I decided to make this pic for his cake, just an extension of the detective theme. And the cake was soooo good, chocolate on chocolate.

My handsome son.

Now just having some fun with the mustache.

I hope you enjoyed the projects I created using all these wonderful products from Jaded Blossom, We R Memory Keepers, Copics and Jolees.

Until next time BIG HUGS to you all.
