Double the FUN!

Today we're celebrating two of our grandchildren's birthdays - Makai turns "3" tomorrow and Zavian turns "1" on the 26th - so Heidi combined their party this year while she still could without either of them complaining :)

Zavian is having a "Pirate" theme and Makai "Hello Kitty" - I'll share some more pictures and thoughts on their actual birth-dates, but I wanted to show my cards for them today -
First, here is Makai's gift wrapped up with her official "Birthday" pin. I found these cute pins at the Dollar Tree and got them for all the grandkids this year.
Next is her card - I actually just used two cards for the kids from my stash - but I had to take them apart a bit and relayer to fit on the "recordable" cards from Stampin' Up! If you remember from Zamarah's birthday previously I am recording me singing "Happy Birthday to You" in each of their cards this year. This is the outside of the card -and here is the inside. The insides are popped up on dimensionals, so you can hear the song better.Here's Zavian's gift with his birthday pin -
I didn't have any Hello Kitty cards in my stash - but I did have this cute pirate card we made a few years ago - perfect for the theme of Zav's party - and here is the inside - the "x" marks the spot to push for the music :) Thanks for stopping by!!

First of all Happy Birthday to the birthday boy and girl! You are right, soon you won't get away with combining the birthdays so do it while you can. Great cards. TFS

The kids are going to go gaga over these cards... they are so stinking cute! Love those little pins Maureen. I'll be off to the dollar store. Couldn't make them that cheap or easily. The cards are gorgeous and I like the idea of using the sound cards from SU! TFS.

These are terrific cards for your grandchildren. I like the idea of popping up the inside with dimensionals so the sound isn't too muffled.

These are all so cute. I love the curley thingies (I'm a Stampin' Up demonstrator and I know ALL the technical terms! - LOL) Thanks for blessing my day and happy birthday to the two special birthday grandchildren!
