I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter. Here in North Georgia we couldn’t have asked for nicer weather, but it was rather odd having it fall on April Fool’s Day this year. Yesterday was also my son, Johnathan’s 26th birthday and so I wanted to make him something special. I was inspired by our recent Stampin’ Success, so I reached for my Bubble Over Bundle and got to work. (I bet you can imagine how many times I was told he’ll arrive any moment during labor, followed by April Fool’s Day! Not a lot of fun after 12 hours in labor and it being my first. But then I wouldn’t have those fun stories to tell him either. LOL!)
And of course, I always make a theme cake for him that was inspired by the Bubble Over Bundle. The cap is a little wonky but he didn’t seem to mind.
He loves the special theme cakes that I’ve made over the years for him and this one was no different. It put a big smile on his face, and I learned something too. Did you know you can make a beer cake? I didn’t until my friend mentioned it, but why not right? Need to check out some recipes since I know it will be a lot of fun to give a try. (How appalling after being raised in Milwaukee. Ahhh the smell of hops… a story for another time.) LOL!
Want to see how I made the card? I’ve made a tutorial for you.
