Take time to smell the flowers!

Good Morning!
Boy, life has been super busy. Just finished up a week of Birthday's and travel. Phew...I'm tired. Just quickly before I get to my card I wanted to share the cake I made for my litttle boy's Birthday.  He doesn't like cake??? so we always buy an ice cream cake but this year I found some inspiration on where else...Pinterest and came up with this.....
 Now if you wanted to hot glue the boxes of candy to the base... well... that would have been WAAAY too easy :) I wanted to lightly tape them so I could deconstruct the cake and hand out the candy in the goodie bags. So that's why you see the space in the pic, my candy kept falling :) The kids LOVED the candy cake and the ice cream sundaes :) :)

And here's the card I'm sharing today!

I just LOVE the way this card turned out.  I used some inspiration from a truly AWESOME designer Amy Kolling and HERE is the card! fabulous huh! Well, I think my Mom loved her card and her flowers, that's what we bought her this year, two rose bushes :)
