LOTV birthday card

So last Friday was my grandson Gunner's 2nd birthday.  How does Grammy celebrate it?  Why by having another surgery and skipping his party of course!!!  Thank goodness I dropped in on his party with all his friends from church!  It is not everyday you turn 2.  I ordered some stamps from Lily of the Valley earlier this month.  I have been hopping through blogland a lot lately!!  2 surgeries in 2 months will do that to you.  So in blogland I have been seeing so many CUTE cards made with these stamps from LOTV and I finally ordered some.  I was a little hesitant ordering from the UK, but am so glad I jumped in and bought from them.  The shipping was so fast!!  Anyways, I bought this little cutie specifically because I don't have much in the way of boy stamps.  I made a really simple card.  Not a lot to it.  A 2 year old boy will just pull it apart anyways right?
I guess you can call this a clean and simple card.  I also used my cuttlebug and embossing folder.  The colors were pretty simple.  I used my favorite jean colors: B-97,95,93,91 and greens YG-05,03,01,00 and for his hair E-11,13,17.  Skin colors E-000,00,01.  The box uses E-53,51,50.
And a picture of my 5 grandbabies with Gunner the birthday boy in the center. I call this one "Center of Attention!"

Thanks so much for stopping by!

I am entering this at the raise the bar challenge it is "oh to be a kid again".  I am also entering it into the challenge over at The sisterhood of crafters the challenge is a birthday theme.

Great boy's card, Brenda. I am so jealous of your beautiful grandbabies - I'm still waiting, and my son is 30 in Feb!! I'm off to look at the rest of your latest stuff, Dee
