Two Birthdays - One Day

Happy Labour Day weekend! Later today I will be going to my mother in laws to celebrate two birthdays. 

My father in law turned 83 and my oldest nephew turned 20 - both on the same day! 

My nephew has always been into sports, specifically soccer so I made him a soccer themed card. He played goal so I have kicked some balls at him many times to help him practice. The card I made for him is below.

My father in law does some amazing wood working! My home is filled with things he has carved and chip carved. He has won ribbons for his work at some local wood shows - his work is amazing! I am sharing his card below - it has been feeling into the mid to high 30's this week with humidity so the sentiment is a little bit of a play on words.

Have a great weekend!
