Kaitlyns card for her Uncle Travis

I just have to share something very special with all of you. My granddaughter Kaitlyn made this special card for her Uncle Travis who is currently in Afganistan. The front of it says "I hope you had a great field trip" - isn't that a hoot! Sarah cut an airplane out with her cricut and Katilyn decorated it up. See the next photos to see who the other passengers in the airplane are. Her Uncle Travis is going to love this!
when you open the card the airplane 'pops' out. Kaitlyn has decorated the airplane all nice and pretty with her markers and some flowers.
the passengers..... from the front to the back are grandma, papa John, mom Sarah, dad Jonnie, uncle Tony, aunt Nichole (Travis' wife) and her sister Kyleigh.
The pilot and co-pilot - Kaitlyn and her uncle Travis.  ;o)

Anniversary card

This is a 50th anniversary card that I made for a couple that asked me to make some favors for their party. I think that we will make something similar at the July camp - I think it would make a great wedding card.

50th Anniversary party favor

I was asked to make some favors for a 50th wedding anniversary party. They hold 2 of the gold Hershey's nuggets. I used an embossing folder for the 'tent'. Their wedding colors 50 years ago where pink and light green so that is what I used for the flowers from Watercolor Trio. The butterflies are cut with the embosslit. She loved them.

Sweet Scoops

A fun card for a little girl's birthday. The colors are close to cocoa, pretty in pink, rich razzleberry and whisper white. We used the big shot and a texture plate on the close to cocoa. The 'kissing' technique was used on the ice cream.

Pun Fun birthday

Here is a birthday card for a little boy. The colors are tempting turquoise, night of navy, real red and whisper white. The image is colored with water color crayons and the aqua painter. The night of navy is textured with the polka dot embossing folder.

Cheers to You

This card could be for Fathers Day, birthday etc. We used liquid applique for the 'beer foam'. It also uses the mat pack and circle punch. Colors are white naturals, more mustard and black.

2 step bird punch

This is a card that Sarah designed for the June camp. Colors are kraft, old olive and razzleberry. We used the big shot and assorted punches.

4th of July

This is uses the 4th of July set from the mini. Colors are real red, night of navy and whisper white. We also used the big shot and assorted punches and ribbon. I am really going to miss the real red polka dot ribbon!

Kaitlyn and her box

My granddaughters love to stamp! Last night after supper they got some of their supplies out and decorated some little craft boxes. This is my 6 yr old granddaughter and the box that she made. Kaitlyn - we are going to have to retake your picture with your eyes open. ;o)

Here is a close of Kaitlyn's box. Isn't it beautiful? I love the pretty flowers she stamped and the ribbon that she chose.

Kyleighs box

Here is a photo of the little box that my 4 yr old granddaughter Kyleigh stamped last night. They love to stamp! They have their own little container of stamps and ink. I have a large jar of ribbon scraps that they can use to decorate their 'projects'. Didn't she do a great job?
