Chelsea F.C.

Ro'i's mum liked the birthday card I made for my eldest son back in November and asked me if I could make a similar card for her son's 18th birthday, only this time with a Chelsea F.C. scarf rather than an Arsenal one.
Like my son, this young man will also soon be going into the Israeli army. His pre-army training so far has included crawling, carrying a stretcher and running up and down sand dunes...  I summed this up by including his running shoes and the badge of the Israel Defence Forces on his card. Mum asked me to add a guitar as well. Ro'i is wearing his blue Chelsea track jacket with the club crest on it. A big red number 18 marks his age.
"I LOVE the card" mum wrote to me. "A million thanks."

Your cards are so thoughtful. I'm glad there are people like yourself who can interpret people's desires in art.

The scarf on the card looks great, Lisa! Eightteen years is a great birthday for guys - I think it can take the place of a Bar Mitsvah for the ones who are not Jewish. (also since the girls have "sweet Sixteen" in the USA)
Thanks for wishing me warmth:) I finally get to wear the winter clothes and scarves and boots I have collected over the years:):)
Many thanks for sharing with All Seasons, Junieper/Jesh StG

Glad to see the reds and the blues are both represented (at some point!) Thanks for sharing with #PoCoLo

I can understand why they called it a white elephant. I never heard of the Brutalist style but the description seems to fit.
