Kip's Zombie Birthday

Here is the card I made for Kip for his birthday yesterday. He loves Zombie stuff and I was so happy to find Zombie images from Simply Betty Stamps. I tend to do themes for my gift giving opportunities so this birthday was definitely for the living dead! I pulled my Halloween stuff back out to find the fence and the tombstone, both are for Martha Stewart. My image is from Simply Betty Stamps and was colored with Copic markers. The sentiment was computer generated and I used DCWV papers and some brads from Jo-Ann's.

I always try and find Kip a puzzle along the lines of a Rubik's cube and one of the first places I look is ThinkGeek. While I was there I found this great zombie wrapping paper and a cool zombie mug to go with it. I also found this puzzle. I think that will keep him busy for a few days anyway! I already knew there was a new zombie game being released the week of his birthday that he would be getting so it was a total zombie birthday.
I even thought about making him a zombie themed cake, but I found a recipe for a Peanut Butter Chocolate cake and since he loves all things peanut butter and chocolate, I went with that.  The cake itself is peanut butter, then there is a peanut butter filling between the layers and then it was iced with a chocolate fudge icing. I make some extra of the filling and used that to decorate the cake. Wow, that cake was delicious, even if I do say so myself!
We went for dinner with family and friends at a local Thai restaurant and then went to the midnight release of Harry Potter. And that was Kip's birthday!
