Mum was delighted and messaged me to say that the card was "another success".
Daniel, and his brothers, receive birthday cards made by me every year. Their Mum says that it has become part of the family's birthday celebrations. Some months ago she sent me this wonderful photo to show me how Daniel was decorating his bedroom. He had lined up all the cards I have made for him over the years, and they were on the wall next to his Manchester City poster. A great honour indeed!
Mum also celebrated her birthday some time ago. Even though she orders the cards for her sons', I always do my best to remember her big day too. This year I decided to make her a papercut card, cutting out her name by hand from white stock then lining the card with a bright pink paper inlay. She was very happy to receive it.
