Happy Father's Day to the New Dad Nephews

Both of my nieces (my sister's daughters) have new baby boys -  Katie and Greg have 9 month old Landon and Christie & Nate have 3 week old Sweet Baby James.   So I just had to make Father's Day cards for the new dads!  And I made them as if the 'boys' were giving them to their father's.

Here's Landon's card to his dad, Greg.

Isn't he a little doll!?!   I just love him to pieces (Landon that is!)  and he just happens to be sporting cool blue star sunglasses that his Great Aunt Julia (ie ME) gave him at our Memorial Day cookout!  And notice how I had the perfect paper to match his shorts??!!

And here's what I stamped on the inside bringing the star theme inside too!   These great stamps are from a set called Father Figure by Verve.
Next up is the card from Sweet Baby James to his Dad, Nate.  James is just the sweetest little thing, not even 1 month old yet - he has really long fingers (maybe he'll play the piano??!) and seems so tiny next to his cousin Landon!
 
 As you can see - Nate and James spend a lot of quality time together - catching up on their sleep!  I thought these pics were so sweet of the two of them....  I used the same stamps on this card.
Wishing a Happy Father's Day to all the father's out there!!  Remember to hug your kids today!
