Birthday card and to let you all know I am still alive!

OMG!  I'm alive!
I cannot believe I have been away from my blog for over two months.
Has anyone missed me? LOL!
But really I do have a very good excuse, I ran away from the cruel Alberta winter for the last week of January and headed to Mexico where my Nephew and his new bride exchanged their wedding vows.

 After a wonderful week of laying around in the sun and stuffing ourselves silly, it was back home for two days and then we headed to Arizona where once again we are soaking up the sun! and enjoying the beautiful sunsets around the pool.
I finally pulled out the scrap booking supplies last night to make my granddaughter a Birthday card, she turned 15 on March the 18th and of course we were not there to help celebrate so I will throw this card in the mail tomorrow with a check so she can go shopping!
I found a fun sketch challenge blog called Seize the sketch and decided to play along.
Here is the picture of this weeks sketch
and here is my take on the sketch
 sorry about not being able to crop the cards but I only have my laptop with me so it has been a real headache.
 I did bring down my cricut machine this year and my gypsy so I was able to cut out this tray of cupcakes using cricuts Sweetshop cartridge.
I am also going to enter this in this weeks challenge over at Die Cuttin Diva's: Snack attack!
Hope all my family and friends are staying safe and having a great time with their loved ones. Thanks for stopping by and hopefully I will be back soon,

Hello my sweet friend! So glad you got a little time to craft...missing your lovely work but certainly can understand wanting to head to a warmer place for the winter! It has been a COLD and SNOWY one for us this year! In face we got another 4 inches of snow today! Oooh, I am so ready to jump on a plane to AZ! I am jealous but so glad you are enjoying yourself!
Your card is awesome! I love the tray of sweetness! You are making me crave chocolate..may have to go raid my cupboards!
Take care, safe travels and hope your back with more crafting when time allows!
