Sweet Birthday Wishes

Heeeey Peeps!  Got another birthday card to share with you today.  This one is for our youngest son's girlfriend.  What a coincidence that 2 of our sons are born in September and both their girlfriends are also born the same month.   LOL.   I inked this cute image of Betsy Bluebell by Penny Black with Copics.  It's been a while since I used my Frantage so I "had to" splash some on.  
Other fun ingredients:
Spellbinder dies
Flower punches by Marvy and McGill
Leaf punch by EK
DPs from stash
Large Scallop Border die by Stampin' Up
Pearls by Kaiser Crafts

Hubby and I had a fab weekend.   On Saturday, we headed to Kona since he was craving lunch at Big Island Grill.   It didn't surprise me that he ordered the Roast Pork with Mac Salad and gravy ALL OVER.    If you're ever in Kona, you gotta eat here.

I ordered the combination Teriyaki Beef and Chicken Teriyaki with mashed potatoes and mac salad. YUMMMM!!!!

And we shared a Caesar Salad.....

We then checked in at the Hilton Waikoloa.  OMGosh, it was so HOT.   As soon as we got to our room we blasted the A/C to FIFTY EIGHT DEGREES and stood in front of it to cool off.    Then we got cold and headed out to see the dolphins.   When we stepped outside, we said, "Oh, so nice and warm out here."   Hee-hee, so crazy.

I must've taken at least 12 shots, trying to get the dolpins in their high leap in the air or other tricks but I had bad timing.  This is the best one of all.

My sweet hubby bought me Mint Chocolate Ice Cream to cool off while watching the dolphins.   I won't mention the price....almost fainted.   Hee-heel.

The main reason we went to the Hilton was to see America perform Saturday night.  It was AWESOME!!!!  Gee, I can't recall when was the last time we went to a concert.  Surely, many moons ago.    On Sunday, we shopped at Costco before heading back home.

Thanks for stopping by and HAVE A SCRAP HAPPY DAY.

I love that darling Penny Black image and all the fun die cuts too. The food looks yummy and I'm glad you had a good time. It's been ages since we went to a concert.

What a cute card for your youngest son's girlfriend's b-day. Betsy reminds me a lot of the other Penny Black character, Lily, that we both like. The meals that you and your hubby enjoyed sure looks ono. I am sure that they were. Is that your favorite restaurant. I hope that you and your hubby enjoyed the show at the Hilton.
