Candy Bar Card

A friend of mine at work had a birthday last week that he kept a secret from us all. He loves chocolate and candy bars so the logical choice for his birthday was a candy bar card. My friends and I use to make these years ago and it seemed like it would be a fun way to tell him he's our buddy.

My husband and I ran out and got candy bars on Saturday and I wrote a little story and attached the candy bars in the appropriate places. Here is a picture of the finished card. I attached a picture so everyone can see it too. These are great for birthdays, graduations, missing you or even you are my friend cards. They are always fun to make as well to read.

So if you are feeling a little creative and someone you know is celebrating a special day. Make them a candy bar card.

Winter has finally arrived in Michigan. It was 0 degrees when I left for my day job today. I have been putting off buying gloves and mittens because the weather has been so nice. I found some great mittens on Etsy that I just love in Ruth Ann Hawley's Etsy shop:
Although I'm a Sparty Fan, U of M comes in a close 2nd.
