Two for the Boys

Reminder:  you have until 11/17 to participate in the Rubbernecker DT blog hop and a chance to win free stamps!  check it out on my post here:


I made these cards for the Teapot Tuesday Challenge over at Split Coast -   this week the destination for our cards is Nate and Will -  Katie & Kevin Renz twins who will be 6 on Nov 19th.  As most of you know, Katie Renz lost her battle with stomach cancer last week - so we are hoping to give a little cheer to the boys on their special day.

Cindy wanted us to use trucks, cars and buses on our cards -  so I used these fun truck stamps and coordinating truck dies from Papertrey Ink.

 I know they are twins but wanted each card to be special for each boy - so I personalized them and used different colors on the truck and bus.
 The number dies are also from Papertrey.  I used Karen Foster Alphabet Snap Stamps for the boys names - these are no longer being made but you can google them to find them on Ebay etc.
and here's what I stamped on the inside of the cards.
If you'd like to send cards to Nate and Will you can mail them to:

Thanks for stopping by today!

Julia these are fabulous!
They will so enjoy them...
and I have tears just thinking about how this entire community has come to together for Katie...
who I never knew of until earlier this year...
and now her family.
