Game Boy

Hi Friends.  Hope everyone is doing well. I have hauled out the sewing machine and I've been dusting off my sewing skills.  I used to sew a lot when my daughter was young, but since I started stamping not so much.  My daughter is a first grade teacher and I am in the process of making some chair covers that hold a folder in a pocked on the back of it.  25 of them!  And the chairs aren't all the same!  It's going to be a project.  They go together quickly thankfully.  And we chose bright primary cotton duck material so they are rugged and bright and cheery.    Anyway, that is what has been taking up some of my crafting time.

Today's card is for my Grandson's 12th birthday on Sunday.  He LOVES video games, so this digi from Mo Manning was just the ticket.

Digi - Mo Manning
Papers - Recollections, Michaels
Embossing folder - Cuttlebug
Colored with Copics
Cupcake is a punch
Thanks for stopping by today.  Until later.........
For those who have asked about the puppy, here is the latest picture.
She will be 18 weeks old Saturday.  She weighs 20 pounds already!

I feel the same as Sue, this image reminds of my son when he was younger, it was such a typical pose for him and his buddies! Wonderful male card!

Su the perfect card for a 12 year old. I like the eyelets down the left hand side. Whew, that sounds like quite a project your started with your daughter. You're a great Mom that's for sure. As of Keeya, she just get more beautiful with each passing week. Love her little pink tag is looks so nice against her gorgeous coloring. I assume that is your grandson, who is also a very handsome young man. Your are a lucky women.
