Happy birthday 13 year olds

I've been so neglectful of my Blog for which I apologize.
We did go away for just over a week though to check up on hubby's elderly parents who had been feeling a little under the weather.

The cards below I made for two of our grand children who are both turning 13 this month, a day apart in fact.

For Billy I did a paper embroidery card while in Adelaide staying with my sister in law.
I stitched the steam engine onto white leather look card stock and then coloured it in, I quite like the textured look it gave me.
A few brads and some green wrapping paper and my card was finished.

For Aimee's card I decided to use a large letter A and then made up the background using all words I could think of that started with A and meant  your Awesome or cool.
I ran the letter A through the Swiss dots embossing folder and  the border running down the side is the Martha Stewart string lace border punch as is the strip going across the centre of the card.
A couple of punched stars (Fiskars squeeze punch) sewn on with a little heart button.
Leaves and Happy Birthday are Marianne Creatables dies.
Everything was distressed with Memento Rich cocoa.

Thank you so much for taking the time to visit, I really do appreciate it.

Super cards Baukje. I admire those who do embroidery on their cards. I am hopeless at anything like that. it looks awesome.
I also love the big A card. the colours look great.
