Happy Birthday Cooper

Hi everyone.  My grandson, Cooper, turned 5 on Dec. 18th.  Wanted to share the card I made for him.  Isn't this fun??!!  I bought a template (click HERE for link) and then set to work cutting out all the little pieces.  It turned out so well.  Perfect card to give to him along with a wooden fire truck building set.

We will be seeing the grandsons later today when Evan brings them over to celebrate a belated birthday for Cooper, as well as Christmas.  We don't get to see the grandsons very often, so we are excited to have the time together.  Jer, Alex and Violeta will be here too.  It's great to have us all together.

Here's a close-up ...
