A Blue Moose for Poppa


This is the card we ended up making for my FIL, known lovingly as Poppa in our house. I let Caitie color in one of the Riley images Sparkle sent me. She had already taken the liberty of coloring many of my bella images for me a couple weeks back without my prior consent so I knew she'd make cute work of it, lol. I hope to turn most of those into cards too. I know my mom and Paul's mom LOVE receiving pictures that Caitie and Audrey color so I thought Poppa should have his own special card with his granddaughter's touch ^_~. Paul told me to do most of it in blue since that's his dad's favorite color. Caitie had so much fun coloring in the "reindeer" that this might become a tradition for family cards. She still has a hard time believing in moose or regular deer, lol. They are all reindeer to her!

I'm sure Poppa will love this! What a great idea to include the kids in making/coloring the card.

Love the coloring idea, and Poppa will cherish it for sure! Sounds like a great tradition...thanks for the idea. My little one LOVES to color and "create" as well. I think Grandma and Grandpa will be getting a 'card-pic" soon! :)

Awww, that is so cute to let her help you color it. Really makes it special. She has your eye for color, too. I think her blue Riley matches perfectly! :) kelly
