Happy Bee-lated Birthday

Inside the card
 The project that I have to share is a birthday card that I made for my newest cube-mate at work.  After being with the company for over 15 years, she transferred into my department from one that was desolved just recently.  When I arrived to work this morning, I found a piece of homemade German Chocolate Cake waiting for me that one of her work friends brought in to celebrate her birthday.  She was so nice to share and leave a piece for me before going to an all day training class.  I was disappointed that I didn't know it was her birthday before hand, so that I could have made her a card for the occasion.  When I got home tonight though, I remembered that I had just the perfect stamp to use & got to work to make a 3x3 card.  Afterwards I told my husband that with a card this cute, I am no longer disappointed about finding out last minute about a birthday.  Thanks for stopping by & taking a peek!!
