Happy Birthday To Alex!!

So my middle baby boy is 5 today! As of 5:01 am, he is 5 years old! All my babies are growing up! Alex is my little Superman. He got lots of superman for Christmas and his birthday - a superman bike, a superman fake computer, superman figurines, etc. Alex has been in love with Superman forever, I think. This will be our 3rd birthday in a row that is Superman themed. He has been Superman for 3 years in a row for Halloween. We have Superman, muscled Superman and even muscled Superman Returns (they are different shades of red and blue, ya know!) costumes. Alex informed me today that he wants to be a Superman Expert when he grows up. I think you are already there, Alex!

Here are his cupcakes for his party today. This is the first time I have made the dessert for one of my boys' birthdays. Usually their Aunt makes it or we buy it. But this year, it's superman cupcakes. I borrowed the icing thingie from my sister, Tamara, and ice them. Hope it looks alright! It was my first time using one of those things!

And also a little stamping related item as well. These are the cards I made for my Lostie Secret Sister last round. She says "Dude!" all the time, just like me! So when I drew her name, I knew I had to make some Dude! cards! These were made using the Do The Hula stamp set from Stampin Up! The first one I made using old olive and cool caribbean. I used the Heidi Swapp distressor on the edges of the caribbean layer. Aida cloth background stamp on the green background. I printed the words on white card stock using a beachy/surf font I found on the computer. I then used my aquapainters to color the tree. The surfboard card uses cool caribbean
and cameo coral. I colored them using the aquapainter as well. They are pretty simple cards, but I wanted to do something with the DUDE theme for Anna.
Hope you all have a great day! Color Challenge tomorrow!!!
