Great grandson's 7th birthday

 My thoughts and prayers are with all of those who were in the path of Hurricane Sandy. All other problems pale into insignificance at this devastation!
My card this morning is for my Great Grandson's birthday tomorrow, I cannot believe that he will be 7 years old already, it seems like yesterday that he was born :o)



I used an 8x8 card blank for this one and covered it with paper from stash. Sorry, I've had it so long that I don't know who produced it! I coloured all the 7s in with Marvey's, anyone remember them LOL.
The letters and sentiment are computer generated using a font called Ryan. Letters cut by hand and sentiment/mat cut with Nesties.
I stamped the faces with Peachy Keen stamp.
Inside left is a mini family tree for Ryan with 5 generations all still living. This is a digi page I created and posted earlier. It is really mainly blur but for the card I changed it to black and white. Right hand side is also computer generated and then I added a little pocket to hold his Toys R Us gift card.
I hope he likes it, I know he will love the gift card :o)

Jackie - this is a brilliant idea. I love the paper with the bright, cheerful 7s everywhere. The family tree is a great idea and will be a wonderful keepsake for Ryan has he gets older. I'm sure he had fun spending the voucher too!
