My son takes after me!!!

I'm proud to display the very first "proper" card my son, Alex, has made. He's going to a birthday party for his "girlfriend" and he wanted to make her a birthday card. So I asked him about colours, embellishments etc he wanted to use and then sat down with him and made a demo card (just to give him an idea of how the pieces go together). I then left him to it! I love what he achieved by himself and also that's it's nothing like mine - so he extended his creativity and went with what he felt. He even then sat down at the computer and created a little rhyme to go inside the card, that we printed off, cut to size and glued in place.

Can you guess which one is his? I love how he's sort-of bracketed the sentiment tag with the flowers and heart rhinestones. :D

That's all for now,


  1. Your son's card is wonderful, it's so neat and perfectly balanced, I just know she will love it too! ps great idea to make a 'demo' card first

  2. Lovely cards. Congratulations to your son.
