Fun Birthday Card Treat

My kids and I had fun making Rob's birthday card the other day.  He loves candy, especially chocolate, so when I saw this cute idea I knew it would be perfect for him. 

I've seen different versions for birthdays, Mother's Day/Father's Day, Teacher Appreciation. 

It was a big hit...he LOVED it! 

The message reads...

Dad, We were going to give you a WHOPP ing 100 GRAND for your birthday but the money slipped through our BUTTERFINGERs.  We didn't have an EXTRA WHATCHAMACALLIT to sell and it wasn't PAYDAY.  We didn't think a pet KITKAT, a trip to New YORK, or an ORBIT around the MILKY WAY would be appropriate.  We do want to wish you MOUNDS of ALMOND JOY both NOW & LATER as  you eat this card.  We hope it doesn't make you ROLOver and get sick.  If it does we promise not to SNICKER.
Love your favorite AIRHEADS

*We couldn't find an individual package of Now & Later candy so we just wrote it in.
