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."
