90th Birthday Celebrations!

Last weekend we celebrating some big birthdays. TWO 90th Birthdays! 

These are the cards I made for the Birthday Boys. The image is Party Hat Birdbrain by From the Heart Stamps.  

I colored both cards the same, with Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers. I added some fun papers as the balloons and I inked and embossed the blue card base to make it a little more interesting.  I inked around the edges of the colored image with Pear Tart & Bahama Blue Memento inks. 

Below is a picture of most of my family with my Grandpa. We're missing my oldest and a few cousins who arrived a little later. It was so fun getting together with them. They live out of state (except for Grandpa, he's here) and we don't get the chance to be together that much.  I love that my kids get to have a Great-Grandpa  and he just adores my kids. It's so fun to see. OK, enough with the mushy stuff, lol.
