David's Birthday Card

Amanda can't have all the fun with 30 cupcake cards: today I made ONE card for David that took all morning. But I am tickled as heck at how it turned out. He asked for apple crates from Michigan for his birthday -- yeah, and I WOULD mail an apple crate to New York ... -- he uses them for his books. Lucky for me the apple orchard didn't have any labeled "Michigan" so I bought him a jar of apple butter instead. He is also getting a beautiful dark wood mixing spoon, a set of new sheets to match the quilt I sewed him, and some pumpkin spice coffee because he introduced me to Starbucks Pumpkin Spice lattes when we went to the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade several years ago.
