Calorie-free Cake

I crocheted this little cake for my girlfriend, Leslie, who celebrates her birthday today.  Though I originally had other plans for it, I kinda ran out of time, so just glued it to card stock and later added a birthday message at the bottom.
Along with many other little gifts spread throughout the day, as well as a real cake baked by another friend for the occasion, I sent her this photo that was taken of us last year.
Wherever you are, it is your own friends who make your world.  (Henry James)

Wishing you all a wonderful week!

Hi Tammy just catching up. Love the crocheted cake and card and the jars collected and reused. I do the same thing. The jar I like is the Tostitos Salsa jar. Doing birthday cards today now due to you I have a great idea for my granddaughter. Don't inhale too much tropical sand. LOL Blessings

Nice job on the card, Tammy - the crocheted cake is adorable. And great photo of you and your friend.

I basically have few friends outside of my own family. It's just sort of how we are.

Have a nice evening,

Home and unpacked and back at it. The weather here is diving (for this time of the year) so have been hiking, too.

Thanks for popping over to say hi. I missed all my bloggy friends for the week I was absent!

Your birthday cake card is so unique and clever. Your crocheting really makes the card special. I also really like the Henry James quote. I hope your dust storms end soon.
