Hello My Friends,
I have a few cute cards I made fairly recently for some new baby arrivals and also a couple birthday cards for our grandson Anderson and granddaughter Margarita. The only one made after my accident is the ‘Color Your Own Birthday Card’ for Margarita. Considering I really had no left handed control with watercolor or markers I decided to let Margarita finish the card herself. I actually think it came out pretty cute without coloring. What do you think? There are a number of things which I used on these cards that are not from Stampin’ Up! I’m sorry about that but I bet you could make some similar cards with whatever you have in your stash!!
The first card was for my dear friend Maryanne’s newest little granddaughter Paisley Reese. I love the name and think they should always say, “Paisley Reese”! Congratulations to Wendy & Andrew (mama & papa).
This card was for Calli and Aaron’s new little twins!
Here’s 6 year old Anderson’s Birthday card
This is my birthday card for 6 year old Margarita. I hope she had fun coloring it herself!
