For the first time ever I have actually made a birthday card for one of my own children!!! It was only when I had it finished that I realised that it's the first one I have made which will actually remain in my home!
Well thank goodness for that, as this one gave me a tremendous headache to make!!! How can something that looks so simple actually be so difficult to do???
I used a simplified version of Kaly's card as a model (Scrap etc, 4th March), but instead of stamping an image I decided to paper-piece Super Mario for my addicted son. Never again! Never, ever, never, never, never again!!! Cutting out all those fiddly bits, then trying to get them to fit together was a nightmare, my fingers are have little bits of paper glued to them, my nails don't exist anymore, and I can hardly see straight ... though I guess it's worth it knowing that my very own little boy (who's not so little anymore) is going to get a kick out of this little fun card:
