Masculine Birthday Card and the rest of the story!
It is a birthday card for my oldest son, who's birthday isn't until August. No, I am not THAT organised, let's get that one straight right now!! So why is it finished so early? (Story below, or you can stop here and have a great day)
Well grab a cuppa and have a seat. While in San Diego for the birth of our grandson Taylor I had taken about 1//3 of my stamping supplies. (If your a follower you will remember that story) Well, the trip was coming to an end and I had packed up all my supplies and ready the Playhouse for the trip home on Sunday. It dawns on me that my youngest son's (Taylor's Daddy) had a birthday on Monday. Now I'm not a BAD Mom, just an excited Grandma!! So I ..............................................
BOUGHT him a card, in fact they were 2 for $1.00 at the dollar store, so I found a very nice one for him and for my GD who turned 3 the end of April. Bases covered!! Family never says much about the hand made cards anyway.......WRONG!! Tony (my son) gets this look on his face and then starts laughing and says "A store bought card? Really? How much did that hurt?" Okay so HE does like the hand made cards. Megan's birthday rolls around ( I am still unpacking the Playhouse and no time for crafting, but I'm thinking I already have a great card and gift......good to go) WELLLLLL, let me tell you about that! My DIL always reads the cards to her girls while they open their gifts. SHE throws a fit when she sees the card "What is this? You BOUGHT a card, where is the beautiful handmade card you ALWAYS make? Don't do this again, we WANT the pretty cards!"
So now you have the whole story!
Well, if you made it to here, you must be either shaking your head with disgust or laughing your butts off! Either way I have learned MY lesson, and thanks for hanging in there for the whole story.
Off to make more BD cards, also have a GD birthday in August.....better hurry on that one!!! LOL
