Merry Christmas Ryan

Merry Christmas stamping friends.

Today's card is the second of the Christmas cards that I made for my children. This one is for my twenty-one year old son Ryan. It reminds me of him when he was little. :)

The tree is from Sweet N Sassy Stamps and is called Cocoa' s Christmas Tree. It is a digi stamp so I can make it any size I want. I love that about digital stamps.

So Fun

Hello everyone, Today's card celebrates childhood fun. Over the Thanksgiving holiday we spent time with friends and played "Pin theTail on the Donkey" with their two little boys. We all had a blast together, then when I got home I found this adorable digi image form Paper Pretties and couldn't resist it.
I would imagine that a donkey would need a few band-aids after a fun game of Pin the Tale on the Donkey. :)
This fun little guy is 'Desmond Donkey' and he is just perfect for a thank you note to our friends.
So Michael and Gabriel this is for you. Love you and miss you a lot.
