Valentines for Grandkids

I'm working hard to get my Valentine cards for my grandkids in the mail. I don't know if I'll make it for Saturday or not, but I thought I'd share a couple with you while I'm in the process.  These two cards are for my two oldest grandsons, Parker and Kesten.  I'll tell you a little more about why I chose these images.

The card on the left is for Kesten, who is 2 and 1/2.  He loves riding his bike as you can see in the photos. When Ken and I last visited, we honestly couldn't keep up with him, he would get going so fast! 

The card on the right is Parker's and he is just turned 3 in January. In the photo above, he is reading his favourite series with Mommy, Curious George!

  • The bike is from the stamp set, Life's Adventure. It has a sentiment below it, but I masked the sentiment using tape over it while I inked up the stamp with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then removed the tape to stamp. The sentiment I added is from And Many More stamp set. which is full of great greetings! The little hearts are from You Plus Me. The Real Red panel is embossed with the Happy Heart embossing folder.
  • The second card has an Elegant Eggplant and Daffodil Delight colour scheme because purple is Parker's favourite colour and yellow for the Man in the Yellow Hat - a very important character in the Curious George series. The tree and the squirrel are from a Hostess set, Nuts About You. Curious George has a squirrel friend named Jumpy and they have an uneasy friendship! I wanted a tree so that George, the little monkey, would have something to climb. I stamped the monkey image from Zoo Babies a number of times to symbolize George's penchant for getting into trouble every time he is left alone! I used the same sentiment as in Kesten's card and the little hearts are just punched out of the yellow DSP (from Sweet Taffy Designer Series Paper) and Elegant Eggplant card stock.
I'll show you some more as I get them finished.  I'm going to include some treats for the grown-up kids as well, courtesy of January's Paper Pumpkin:

Stampin' Up has introduced a new photopolymer stamp set this month:

My favourite sentiment from this set is "love you more than chocolate"! Give me a call or email if you'd like to order it, or go on-line yourself to order.
