Minnesota, United States
I am retired and loving it. I have a wonderful husband of 54 years. We have 3 awesome children, 7 fabulous grandchildren and 8 incredibly precious great-grandchildren. I enjoy reading, walking, biking, card making, jewelry making, stitching and quilling. My winters in Minnesota are spent mostly indoors while in the summer my husband and I spend quality time on our Harley enjoying the beautiful scenery in our area. I hate to cook, love anything sweet and have mixed feelings about exercising.

Twins Birthday Cards

I made these cards for my great-granddaughter's 1st birthday.  It is a tradition in my family to always include an X & O someplace on a birthday card.  I thought my X & O banners were a clever way to include them in these.

  1. Oh my gosh, I can't believe they are one already!!! These are so stinkin' CUTE!!! I have that sweet digi image, and I didn't know you could flip it over. What a great idea. I love your background papers and your coloring is spot on. These just make me smile, as I'm sure your sweet great granddaughters do for you!!!
