Well... It's Official


Did the title catch your attention? {giggle...} Aren't these stamps a riot? The stamps and scallop oval punch are new in this Occasions Mini catalog. I knew that I'd have to order Golden Oldies ASAP 'cause I love that 'ole man with his pot belly and flip flops - he's just too funny! This card was designed to congratulate my brother and dear sis-in-law who just became first-time grandparents last weekend. Yay!!! It's not the typical "welcome baby" type of card, but I thought I'd have alittle fun with the occasion. I wrote the "it's official" on the Oval All tag on the front of the card, and "Welcome to the Grandparent's Club!" on the inside.

I selectively colored the oval tag in black marker to eliminate the original sentiment, and colored in the circles with Gable Green marker. This was punched with the new scallop oval punch and layered behind with the Key Tag punch. The DSP is from the now-retired Delicate Dots DSP pack, and the ribbon came from my stash. The grandma and grandpa images were watercolored with markers and aquapainter. Oh, the wood floor was just drawn in with a black marker and watercolored with browns.

I hope you enjoy my little card today - I know Del and Kim will crack up!
