Morgan is TEN!

Yes, it's been another week since I've posted. I have to say, I am just loving Colorado SO MUCH, that it takes a lot for me to sit still enough to write a post. It's so beautiful outside, and one of my favorite things to do when I'm not stamping is to curl up somewhere with a good book. My current book is Jubilee Trail by Gwen Bristow... I'm such a pioneer woman at heart. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE to stamp, and I've got at least 7 or 8 cards that I need to show you, but the posting part is not NEAR as much fun as the stamping part! *sorry*

But today is a very special day in the Force household... Morgan is now TEN! I made him a special card...

...but then decided I wanted a little more bling since this is his big double-digit birthday, so I made this one too!

Those of you who have followed my blog for the last couple years (thank you!) will remember Morgan's love affair with Only Orange. I simply had to include it on his card... but unfortunately, I don't have any orange glitter, so red will have to suffice! I think I'll go ahead and give him both cards since they were both made specifically for him. He'll get them tonight after his special dinner!

I promise to get my Father's Day cards posted by the end of the week...

These are both great Michelle, and I agree that he should get both of them! After all, as you said they were made especially for him. Thanks for sharing.

P.S. I've left you an award on my blog - so pop on over to collect it when you get a minute!

How did you get the chunky glitter to stay? Is that what Sticky letters are? Please, enlighten me!

Michele Force said...

Yes, Princess Danell, the Sticky Letters are made from the same material as the Sticky Strip and it is VERY sticky indeed! You position the letters/numbers where you want them and then sprinkle on the glitter. After tapping off the excess, you're left with a fabulous piece of bling! Thanks for your comment!
