Barbie cake and card

Hello my dear friends

Did everyone have a great Labor Day weekend?  I feel like summer is over.  Fall is just around the corner.  I love the colors of fall and the cool air.  But I do love the summer.  Labor day is not just a holiday weekend for me, its also my grand daughter's birthday.  This year she celebrated her 4th birthday.  A few weeks ago when I asked her what she wanted for her birthday, she quickly gave me a list.  Among the many things she asked me for, she asked me to make her a Barbie cake.  She even had me watch a few You Tube videos showing how to decorate one.  Smart little thing!!!  So guess what I made?  Yes of course!  A Barbie cake.  My very first one.  As she finished her birthday wish list she said "oh yeah Bella, I also want you to make me a card.  That would make me very happy"  OMG!! I would had never though that a card made by me would make her happy.  And yes!!  She also got her card.

Here's a closer  of the card

I used the Disney "Happily Ever After"  Cricut  cartridge for my card and the six by six "A Happy Heart" paper.  I added some bling and a wood laser dollie cut.  And of course nothing is complete without some flowers and lace.  Here is my YT video for this project  if you want to watch :-)

Thank you all for dropping by.  Let me know what you think of my first Barbie cake.  I have a feeling I'll be making more.  :-)
