Hello Everyone!! Well, it appears we didn't get as much of the "white stuff" as they thought we were going to get ... of course it is still snowing so I shouldn't speak too soon!! Only a few inches so far ... I can live with that!!
My mother called yesterday afternoon and asked if I could make up a few birthday cards that she would have to send to my niece & her children. Of course with 2 of those birthdays coming next week, I thought I'd better not dilly dally and get wrong on the request. So, here is what I have come up with. My niece turns 40 this year and her three children are all teenagers this year, with her youngest one turning 13. I hope they enjoy their homemade cards .. I tried to make them with their personalities in mind.
The first card is for my niece ... she is a beautiful young Mom and I think she'll really like this image which comes from Art Creations Friday. The layout is one that I saw in the Sept. 2009 Card Maker magazine. I really like the outcome.
This 2nd card is for Taylor who will be turning 17 this year. It's so difficult to image how quickly these children have grown up ... it only seems like yesterday that my niece & daughter were young teens themselves!!!
The 3rd card is for Hunter ... I can't remember, she will be either 15 or 16 ... not sure which ... heck, I'm lucky to keep up with MY grandkids ages let alone my sister's grandkids, LOL!! I bought this image a while back figuring I'd use it for my granddaughter, Morgan ... you know how much teens enjoy their phones these days!! I used a "mirror image" stamp in order to reverse the image. I think it looks pretty cool!! (is that term still used???)
The last card is for Cody. He will be 13 this year! All the "boy/guy" images I have reference things like hunting & the outdoors ... neither of which remind me of Cody. But I figured ALL boys like frogs & critters ... no matter what age, so I went with this cute little guy! The fact that he is so dang cute makes the card work for a birthday in my mind ... no matter how old the recipient is!!
Well, I guess I'd best get something done around here ... even if it is more stamping!! LOL!! Have a great day everyone ... those getting snow, stay warm & safe ... those in the sunshine, please send some my way! Thanks for stopping by!!
