Happy Birthday for grandson

Sorry I haven't posted in so long but have been dealing with family sickness, both my dad and youngest brother have been in the hospital (my dad still is).
Anyway, this is a card I made for my grandson's 15th birthday this month.  I copied a card on Mary Fish's blog   I used the same papers (SU Elegant Soree DSP, Crumb Cake and Baja Breeze and Basic Gray CS)  and layout but changed the sentiment panel.  I punched the circles with different sized punches)  Mary has a lot of beautiful cards on her blog and some wonderful inspiration so check it out.
Hope you all had a wonderful and Blessed Christmas. Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek.

Thank You cards

These are some thank you cards I am sending to the staff at the Artman Home in Ambler, PA to thank them for their work with Alzheimer patients.  They are for the Heart to Heart Card Drive in memory of Carolyn King's grandmother who passed away in 2008 from complications of Alzheimer's disease. You can check out all the info on Cammie's blog,
It is a very worth while cause and there is also a huge prize involved.
All the products used are from Stampin Up.

The mats are Always Artichoke also as well as the Sizzlets Lots of Tags label 2 die, and the small buttons.  I used the new Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder on the Cherry Cobler panel. The sentiment is from the Word Play stamp set and is stamped in Cherry Cobler on Crumb Cake (formerly Kraft) CS, and inked on the edge with Soft Suede ink.  I used the gold cord from last years' Holiday Mini.  That's about it.
