party animal

Just jumping in for a quick post to say HAPPY BIRTHDAY to one of my closest friends, Gary.

It's a fitting card because, yes, he actually does make animal balloons:)  This card will be entered into Simon Says Stamp's Wednesday Challenge "animal antics".

I've known Gary since we were little kiddos in college and I think of him as a little brother.  We sang in choir together, and a year after I moved to NYC, he decided to join me.  Gary is one of those people who seems to know how to do everything...he's very accomplished in his career, he can sing and write songs, he has a side-gig as a hair model, he can whip up a mean cocktail, and he can plan the best birthday theme parties.  Here's a photo of some cupcakes I made for his pig-themed party last year.

Eek, a little frightening.  These were less scary: some bacon-sprinkled red velvet doughnuts to stay consistent with the pig theme:)

Happy birthday, Garyman!   Love you lots and lots.

Stamps: Avery Elle Party Animal
Inks: Memento Luxe (dandelion, love letter, nautical blue, pear tart); Memento (tuxedo black)
Other: glossy accents, Wink of Stella glitter brush (clear)
