21 Today

Twins Gabi and Adi recently celebrated their 21st birthday. I have mentioned before that my cards have become an essential part of their family's birthday celebrations and that these two young men spend the run-up to their big day guessing what the theme will be that year!
Well, this year Mum asked me to create a card for Gabi, right and below, as a reminder of the ceremony he went to earlier in the year at the President's Residence, Beit HaNassi, the official residence of the President of Israel. Back in May he was chosen to receive the Award for Excellence from the President of the State of Israel, President Ruvi Rivlin. Mum is justifiably proud of her son's achievements and asked me to once again show Gabi meeting the President, on his birthday card. She sent me a photo of them shaking hands. Gabi is a wearing his olive green Israeli army uniform and the brown beret of the Golani Brigade. The Emblem of the State of Israel, which shows a menorah surrounded by an olive branch on each side, and the writing "ישראל" (Hebrew for Israel) below it, is in the background.
Adi just graduated with top marks in his maths and computers degree. Mum asked me to show him wearing a black mortar board with a tassel. I gave him a sign in which he proudly declares that he got top marks in his studies. I also added some mathematical symbols and a laptop computer in the background. A big number 21 marks their age on both cards.

Another beautiful creation - If I was their mum, I would have a scrapbook for each one with all the year's cards. A beautiful way to save the days.

Hi Lisa, what a lovely tradition. You must be like part of the family (almost). Mum is justifiably proud of her sons and what a special way to mark their birthday and their achievements.

Thank you for linking up with the #MMBC.
