People I love

Sunday, 14 March 2010


I swore I'd never use that title, but I now know why others do! I just had to share with you this beautiful card my youngest son made for me last night. I had to stay down stairs and pretend that I didn't know he was raiding my craft stash and felt pens(actually copic markers). He is 11years old, and has a few problems that means he has quite a short attention span(unless wired up to a computer game of some description), so the fact that he spent a whole hour working on this project makes my heart smile.
He chose the Fairycake image from Sj's Little Musings I'd printed out to use earlier this week, coloured it himself with my copic pens and then carefully cut it out. He is righthanded but uses scissors lefthanded, so this is a pretty difficult process for him. He then chose a card from my black glitter stash to glue her to. I've included the envelope because he wrote on it with a tube of stickles, and I know as fellow crafters you will appreciate how difficult it is to keep the pressure even enough to write like this. I know I'm being mushy, but I love this card to bits, and I think I will frame it for my wall.
Sharing the love as always Gina x x x
