Finally! This is a Double Header!

     It has been a few months since I have gotten to see my DD and family.  Felt like forever!  During that time,  my GS turned 5 and also graduated from pre-school.  I have been hoping to share the cards I created for both occasions. 

     First up is Brian's birthday card.  This was created with printed gaming papers and a stamp set by Pretty Cute Stamps called Game On.  I used a pierced oval die to showcase my #5.  I added some Glossy Accents to my controller and some green candy dots to go with the paper.  The Grandson stamp is from Anna Griffin. 

     My second card was  harboring a gift card for his Pre-School graduation.  I asked his mom what color the cap and gown were and she said she thought blue, so I went with it.  Turns out it was maroon!  Oops.  Another fun story with this, is that I sent hubby for the gift card and he came home so proud that he did not buy a plain generic one.  He found a Happy Birthday one.  Say what?  Another oops.  So you see, I am glad these are finally delivered.

     I cut a stitched postage rectangle die from white card stock and stamped these really cute graduation stamps, I found on Ebay.  The little boy was colored with Copic markers, placed back in the die and sponging was done with Tan ink.  The papers I used were from a masculine 8x8 pad from Memory Makers called Just Chillin.  My stars were cut from navy card scraps and are from Sweet n Sassy Stamps.  I added crystal stars as well as pearlized star stick-ons, as accents.

     Well, that is my story and I am sticking to it.  Two things off my plate, and a fun weekend with half of my family.  Good times!  Thanks for stopping by.

They're both over the top perfect! Love the gaming card - how fun!!! I have a couple sets of the Pretty Cute Stamps and they're nice. Good variety. Also love the little grad card. How funny about the colors! Something he can look back on and laugh.

What cute cards for both occasions, and the oops moments will only add more precious memories to these 2 special events! The last I recall is being at Dee's baby shower, and I've never seen Brian yet, only in pictures, and he's 5 already! Time flies! Great job on both, I'm sure he was delighted with both. So glad you enjoyed your special time together.

What cute cards, Mary Anne! I really love the gaming card since my son is a gamer too! Your grandson will have fun shopping with the gift card no matter what's on it! Can't believe he's 5 already! Where does the time go? Happy to hear you had a wonderful weekend with your daughter & family! That always makes the heart feel good! :)

Two adorable cards for your proud little grandson and all his accomplishments, Mary Anne! I'm sure they will be cherished! That was too funny about the gift card and hubby trying to be "helpful." Sounds like my guy!! Hugs, Darnell
