Happy Birthday Grandpa and Grandma!

Hello everyone!

I hope your week is fabulous!
I made a birthday card for my Mom and Dad. Unfortunately, they will both be out of the country on their birthdays so I made it in advance and had both of my boys write a message inside :)

I was inspired by the Outlawz Monday Greeting Challenge- fifty percent of the card must be WHITE and the Corrosive Challenge Blog- Sketch Time!

I used the adorable Greeting Farm Grammie & Gramps rubber stamp and did paper piecing for their clothing! They came out so cute!

The sketch....
 

And here are my cards together!

Sassy and pretty grammie... just like my  Mom!

And introducing very smart Gramps... he actually do look like my Dad! lol!

Happy Birthday Grandpa and Grandma {in advance} from your grandsons Kyle and Ethan
...enjoy your trip!

I also entered my Dad's B-day card for The Play Date Cafe Challenge PDCC77!

Once again thank you for stopping by!
