In Cards/ Celebrations


January 28, 2015

Greetings from San Francisco Airport.

I overnighted with my daughter and her family last night so I could have quick and easy access to the airport this morning.  35 minute vs 3 hour (from my home) drive!

Last night we had just a little more birthday celebration topped by the cards the two older grandkids made for me.  Apparently they had holed-away in the playroom for some unsupervised craft time.  The youngest, 6 yr old Landen, made me a hand drawn card on a full sheet of card stock, front and back.  I left it in my room-away-from-home so it didn’t get damaged in travel.

Austin’s card:  Notice the use of Designer Series Paper, coordinating card stock, punches, and stamps.

He seemed to really be proud of the mention of 71 on the inside of the card!  Austin is 10-1/2.

Do you recognize this o-l-d Stampin’ Up! alphabet?

Nora's hand stamped card

Nora, 8 year old GIRL, also used the Designer Series Paper, a larger punch, card stock that coordinated with the Designer Paper and some handwritten sentiments.  I guess because we write which birthday it is on their cards, they follow suit and write the age all over their hand made cards.  Gotta love it!!!!!

Nora went for a bit more color on the inside, plus the hand written sentiment.  She likes exclamation points!  And smiley faces.  🙂

Handmade by.....mark on the back of the card.

Way to go Nora! She knows what’s important: WHO made the card and WHEN.

Now for the envelope, made using the Stampin’ Up!’s Envelope Punch Board.  Austin is a master at making envelopes of all sizes.

I hope you’ve enjoyed today’s ‘cards-by-kids’ report.  I love these cards and the time and thought put into them.  I can ust hear the chatter as they were working.  Very big grin.

By the way, can you name that alphabet stamp set???

Have a great day.  Next post will be from Orlando, Florida.
