A Sweet Birthday Surprise...

A few weeks ago at CHA I was browsing the adorable display at Taylored Expressions and ogling all the amazing creations by my friends on The Baker's Dozen. Those girls are seriously talented....

I've always loved those Cuppie stamps. So, I had to have one... or two (you'll see the other one soonish...) This one is called Destination New York

You see, we were planning to take the boys to NYC as a surprise, and we were working on figuring out how to spill the beans. I picked up a gift card for Toys R Us (if you didn't know there is a HUGE one in NYC so huge that there is a FERRIS WHEEL inside the store.)

I used TCP's "Coolvetica" alphabet to spell out the message "HB@nyc" on the inside and created a little pocket for the gift card. After scratching his head for a minute, he finally figured out that we were going to New York City for his birthday - and was thrilled to have some spending money to choose whatever he wanted at the store!

The best part, the next day, when he was walking through the den, and noticed the card sitting on the mantle, he yells out "Hey Mom, that cupcake is in New York City too!" Um yes, babe, I knew that.....
