Richard and Jonny

Sleep is definitely a recurring theme on the birthday cards I make for Mister Handmade in Israel. You can see some of the other cards I have made for him herehere and here. He's really rather good at it you see and is able to fall asleep at the strangest of times. I'm not entirely sure that he has ever fallen asleep eating a bowl of cereal, whilst sitting on the sofa. I used a little artistic license on this but I like it!
I have shown Mister Handmade in Israel wearing his favourite lemon shirt and brown trousers. He is rather fond of the colour brown. He is surrounded by the cushions which are on our sofa (I took a photo of them to match the pattern) and he has taken his glasses off before drifting off to sleep. In one hand he is holding a blue handled spoon from our kitchen and, in the other, a bowl full of cereal - one of his favourite evening snacks.
I added his age to the card in big red numbers (no secrets on this blog!) and some balloons for his birthday too. Comments on my Facebook page ranged from "Oh I like that card!!" to "It's his double!"
Oh, and I made him a cake too. It was delicious!
Jonny also recently celebrated his birthday. "Can you make a card showing Jonny playing tennis with [his friend] M.?" his wife asked me. Apparently they play every week.
Always a stickler for detail, I asked what colour tennis racket he plays with and what clothes he wears when he plays. Apparently this guy likes yellow too, though his favourite shirt is more of a fluorescent yellow than the lemon that my other half favours.

You do lovely work. Handmade work means so much more to people and it could take less time than driving to a store and finding a card, and it is certainly more heartfelt...why don't we do it more? It doesn't always come out as lovely as yours, I think!

Your husbands card is a riot! I am sure he laughed seeing it! That is truly a gift being able to fall asleep at random times. :) The tennis themed card is quite fun too.
