May Celebrations

The month of May brings two major celebrations for our family. The first is my hubby’s birthday. Pops got to celebrate with our youngest granddaughter this year for his birthday and we had so much fun with this little three year old. On a previous post I thought I would give me the card in the warm brown tones but at the last minute decided on something a little more fun.

After we celebrate hubby’s birthday, it’s time for our 45th wedding anniversary on Saturday. We are supposed to be having a long awaited sleep over with our two older grandchildren (8 and 10). It’s been at least 15 months since we had them for a sleepover and we can’t wait. So staying on the light side of our anniversary, I decided on this card:

Both cards’ sentiments are computer generated and the empty toilet paper roll was found on line as a free clip art item. I stamped my hearts using a Sizzix framelits w/stamps set in GKD cherry red ink and mounted it on a Bonnie patterned paper. The birthday card’s candles are a Hero Arts red rubber mounted stamp. I visited Pinterest to find these ideas.

Thanks for stopping in for a peek.
