Space Birthday Card & Exclusivity

November 19, 2013 at 12:39 pm 5 comments


Forgive me for not posting – it’s a little full on over here and much of what I’m doing I can’t post – sufficient to say that I’m not sitting with my feet up 😉!
This card was a last minute one for Will who is 6 today. It’s using some Clearly Besotted, Hero Arts and some stamps I produced recently just for a stamping workshop. I should really tell you about those- but time is of the essence so I won’t for now.
Let’s just say it was fun creating this- I rarely do that at the mo and he seemed happy enough with it.

Less happy is he with the concept of ‘party’.
Far be it for me to inflict unnecessary socialising onto someone, but the party was his idea.
I asked him who he’d like to invite.
He gave me one name.
I looked quizzically at him, waiting for the next ones.
No more names came.
I asked who else he’d like to have to the party.
Now he looked confused
‘Cant I just have one’ he queried?
‘Not really, Will, your other friends would like to come’.
Choosing just one from the little group was tantamount to social suicide.
‘Ok’ he sighed and reluctantly gave me two more names.
‘What about x and y’ I suggested.
Indignantly he looked at me and with an exasperated tone he said
“Do I have to have them”.
We settled on 5 friends. That’s just about perfect.
We wrote the list and he begrudgingly added each friend.
His sister asked ‘can I come?’
He looked cheekily at her and retorted
“NO- you’re noton the list”.

Maybe one day he’ll enjoy parties.
For now, he’s more concerned with the Lego cake he wants me to create. I’m not sure he’s even bothered about the party.
He’s a ‘partyforone’ guy.
Happy with his own company.

Sensible boy!
See you soon- hopefully to show you a few things I’ve been up to!
Better dash and make a party tea !

    Awesome card for Will! I love the bold color contrast and white faux stitching! I remember the days when I made Lego cake….! Enjoy the party of 5-perfect number of guests to me!

    Hilarious, this is exactly what happened with my little boy this summer!!! I have also just made a lego cake you can see on my blog as a wedding cake for a friend, and my son has already put in his order for one for his next birthday! Great card BTW!

    Seriously cool card for Will, and the kind of kid story that just makes me smile! Boys are funny little creatures…I have five of them under my belt, and each one very different from the next. One sounds much like your Will – perfectly happy with his own company and a good book. Hope the “party” is a huge hit.

    Happy Birthday to Will!! I had to laugh at his only wanting one friend … I hope he had fun!
