You say it's your birthday....

We're gonna have a good time!
I feel like I am running around like a chicken without it's head... Graduation tonight, and my son Stephen's birthday tomorrow. my powder room toilet is leaking water all over the wood floor, my ice maker is malfunctioning and my dishwasher is making a very funny noise. And the electric fence is not working. Layla went after a neighbor who was jogging by the house today! Let's see, tomorrow I'll be spending my day with the Sub Zero tech, the plumber, electric fence people, and the dishwashing man! Like I have nothing else to do but wait around for each of them to show up! This is just perfect timing, with the party right around the corner. When it rains it pours! It's been one heck of a week.
My son Stephen wants to go to culinary school when he is finished with High School. (Yes, we'll have another graduation next year...that's what happens when you have 4 kids in 5 years!) I knew that I wanted to use the Chef image from Viola. I think that he's going to get a kick out of it.
I couldn't resist using the machine on this one. I had decided to not use any other embellies. This is a SUO card. (Stampin Up Only) Do you like his pants. I just used my black marker and made lines! LOL!
I'm taking off for the next few days. I have to shop, cook, wait for appliances to be fixed and then recover from the weekend. I'll be posting some blog candy on Monday. Be sure to stop back to see what it is.

This is one of the best cards I've seen made with this set. I love the combo with the Print Pattern bg. You're making me wish I had Voila!
