Christmas Birthdays.

Both of our Grandsons' have Birthdays in December . One at the beginning and one at the end. They are both growing up so fast and I really struggled this year to come up with a card idea for them.  Grandson number two liked his so hopefully grandson number one will like his too. 

Grandson number two is the younger but his birthday comes first.  I have this number set  by  Sizzix with comes with the 'today' as part of the set so created the card above.

I had to make Grandson number ones' card slightly longer to accommodate the extra year. 

Just getting over a really bad cystitis attack and as I don't want a repeat attack over christmas have  spent a fortnight trying to get a prescription made up on a just in case basis. Fingers crossed I  won't need to use it but  a bad attack is usually followed quickly with another one and then I can go months without a problem. They come completely out of the blue so best to be ready me thinks. 

Hope everyone is just about ready for Christmas. I managed to get my cards all posted out in between the postal strikes and presents delivered by the couriers. 

Have a lovely time  and take care.

Both cards are gorgeous for boys cards. Your grandsons will love them.
Today your beautiful card arrived and the post is really striking, as the stamp was not stamped. Thanks so much!
Hope your cystitis will take a brake for Christmas.
Wishing you and Doc a very Merry Christmas and a much better 2023!

Two fabulous masculine cards for your grandsons, and it can be so difficult to find the right theme when they are teenagers, but these both fit the bill perfectly Mrs. A. Sorry to hear you have had cystitis which is a nasty thing, and wise to have some medicine in the cupboard ready just in case, and hope it doesn't happen and you have a great Christmas, and wishing you a Happy New Year too. x

Totally with you on the prep for that one Valery Anne, I now keep something you can pick up in the chemist which they just call Cranberry Sachets, don't get rid but seem to ease things until real relief is available.

Happy Christmas and hope you don't get any flare up's.

Aquarius said...

I reckon the boys will love these cards. Sorry to hear you've not been well and hope you can get the prescription. Trying to make any sort of appointment seems to have become increasingly frustrating and stressful nowadays. Take care and have a good Christmas - all the best for 2023 xx

These are great cards for teen boys. It's hard to make them cards at this age and these are perfect. I hope you are all healed by Christmas and are able to enjoy the holidays. Merry Christmas.

Just back reading your posts more thoroughly, Mrs A didn’t read family card post properly just a quick skim in proper read they sound so much more complicated!
Well done on perservering.
A very clever idea for cards and do pray you avoided the second attack, a nasty infection so you’ve my sympathy I also had meds made up just in case of a flare up.. be prepared and all that.
Prayer hugs,
