Grandson's Soccer Birthday Card

My grandson just turned 7 and loves soccer.  He plays on a travelling team and is really quite skilled (if I do say so myself!).  I wanted to do a card that fit his interests.  Unfortunately I had to resort to retired stamp sets to make this card.




I like to do fun and interactive cards for kids so a slider/spinnner card was ideal!  You can see (and print out) the instructions and supplies for this card here.


I hope he enjoys his card!  It was made with love by his Nana!


Happy Stamping!

Grandson's Soccer Slider Birthday Card


My grandson just turned 7 and loves soccer! He plays on a travelling team and I wanted to do a card that fit his interests. Unfortunately I had to use retired product stamps to create this. Still, you can make something similar using whatever you have on hand.

Hurricane Matthew

I just want to send out my love, thoughts and prayers to all who are in Hurricane Matthew's path--to those directly affected and to those marginally affected.  My Dad (age 95) and sister live on the beach in Daytona Beach, Florida.  They moved inland to a hotel and are riding out the storm.  I've been watching the TV coverage and realize there may be damage to their condo. I am just so happy that they are safe!  And as this storm moves northward, I pray for my daughter-in-law's family and their home on St. Simon's Island, Georgia.  They have evacuated to my son's home in Atlanta and I know they are safe but their home may sustain damage.  We can deal with damage, but we can't accept loss of life.  Thank you for your thoughts and prayers as well.
