A Watercolor Little Birthday Card

Today marks my grandfather's 93rd birthday.  I am so blessed and clearly take this for granted - since I don't know what it's like to have lost all your grandparents by this age.  We will celebrate his birthday with my grandmother (they've been married for 71 years) and the rest of our clan here in Arizona.  This isn't the card I've made for him - long story that I'll maybe recount later.  Just a pop in to share this card made for the stash using my Mission Gold watercolors to create the background and then some Justrite Seasonal Trees stamps to set the scene.  It is a masculine themed card, so it seemed appropriate to post today!

On the inside, some washi tape to create room for a sentiment stamped in Black Archival ink.  Keeping it simple for the boy!

What are you celebrating this week? I'm hoping you are feeling as blessed as I am.


  1. Happy birthday to your grandfather!! This a CAS masculine card at its best. Perfect colour palette and design!

  2. What a wonderful and awesome card for your grandfather, happy birthday!


Thank you so much for your kind words. Isn't it fun to encourage one another, even from a distance?
