Mickey Mouse

Eilon was turning 2. He likes Mickey Mouse, Mum said, so I cut out a big paper Mickey along with a picture of Eilon. I added some balloons and stars, and a big red number 2.
Mum was thrilled with the card. "[It's] so cute. I love it!" she wrote to me. "It looks just like him! He will love it." Now, I wasn't totally convinced that a 2 year old was going to recognise himself on a card, but Eilon's Mum orders birthday cards for all her family, so I knew that his big brothers were going to enjoy it, even if Eilon wasn't so sure!
I was absolutely thrilled when Mum sent me these photos on the morning of Eilon's birthday. Eilon had certainly spotted Mickey and was clearly pleased with what he saw. Some people are puzzled when I tell them that I make handmade, custom-made cards in this day and age. They think that emails have replaced birthday cards. When I see photos such as these, I know that all my efforts are
worthwhile. And Eilon's Mum thinks so too.
"You have no idea what joy you bring to our house" she told me.
"[You're cards have become] a real tradition!"
* This evening marks the start of Pesach, or Passover, and my family and I will celebrate the Passover Seder. You can read more about it in two of my previous posts here and here. 'Chag Pesach Sameach', a happy Passover festival, to all celebrating.

How cute! This must have been fun to make. I was a huge Mickey fan at that age too.

Very cute, the card with the nice colors and also the photos of the sweet child. I think you are very glad with the pics.O yes, I wish you and your family " Een Gezegend Pesach". I say it in Dutch, that is easier :-)

A perfect birthday card for a two-year-old boy that likes Mickey Mouse. :)
Emails can't replace birthday cards, ever!
Happy Passover! xx

Eilon is a lucky boy ... I bet his mom makes a scrapbook for each of the kids...what fun to look back at the changes to their cutouts and cards as they grow.

Happy and Blessed Holy-Day.

Your cards are beautiful and I can imagine that anyone who is lucky enough to receive one of your cards would be tickled pink. Shop bought cards are rarely anything special, but a handmade creation is something special. You must have a very steady hand too!

Thank you for linking up with the #MMBC.
