Friday Favorites: Occasions Catalog Birthday Set

Hello everyone!  Welcome to Friday!  It is the first weekend of the New Year, do you have anything planned?  My son, my first born child, is turning 16 tomorrow.  I can not even believe it.  How did we get here?  Where did all the time go?  He is a great kid, and well on the way to becoming a wonderful young man.  I am so proud of him, and excited to see what this next year has in store for him.  So tomorrow we will celebrate with a friend party early in the day, and a family dinner in the evening.

Fridays mean Friday Favorites over at Stylin' Stampin' Inkspiration.  This week, we are sharing our favorite birthday stamp set from the Occasions catalog.  For my favorite, I picked the Carousel Birthday stamp set, featured on page 9 of the Occasions Catalog.

I love the fun circus vibes from this whole product suite, but the stamp set is my favorite!

Here is my card:

I really like this cupcake ferris wheel.  I used my clear wink of stella to pick up ink, and color the tops of my cupcakes.  I also ran the wink of stella over the word "birthday" on the greeting stamp.

In this close up picture, you can see the sparkles.  I am not sure how I crafted before Wink of Stella.  I put that stuff on everything!

That is all I have to share for today!  Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a good weekend!
