Seize the Birthday #6 and Operation Write Home

image

I used the masculine Seize the Birthday sketch for the layout.  The Operation Write Home midweek challenge this week was to use the colors of your state flag.  Being from Texas, anytime I use red, white, and blue it looks like a 4th of July card to me.  So I used red and blue but went with a deeper red, cherry cobler, and darker blue, night of navy.  I think it turned out better than I thought it would, and I don’t think it looks like a 4th of July card at all.

A Card for Gramee

Today when I was cardmaking my sweet niece woke up from her nap and begged me to make a card for Gramee.  She really wanted to make a birthday card but Gramee’s birthday was in January and there was no way she would be able to keep it hidden until next January.  We then had to have the same discussion about a Valentine’s card.  So we finally agreed on a ‘love you’ card.  She picked out everything on this card…EVERYTHING!  Looks like I’ve got another papercrafter in the family.  She literally finished writing her name, walked out of my crafting area, and gave it to Gramee…se there was no way she was keeping it until next January!
