Today is my son’s birthday. As of 5:30 this evening, he will be 6 years old! Hard to believe. He’s so fun, most of the time. 😉
He’s my silly, cuddly, expressive, dino- and machine-loving, snuggly, bundle of energy and he’s my favourite boy. Okay, he’s my only boy so I can say that. I love him to bits! He certainly keeps things interesting in our home.
I made this quick card for him yesterday and popped it in his backpack before he left for school today.
I used strips of washi tape, from lots of different companies, choosing lots of green and all the gray I could find because those are his favourite colours. The dinosaur is from a stamp set called Roar! The “ribbon” is two strips of washi folded in half and stapled to the tag, which I popped up. T-rex is stamped in Topiary and rolled in New England Ivy. I guess I should have used a different Black ink or waited a bit before I stamped it because it ended up running a bit. Oh well, my boy won’t care. I’m living with the imperfection. 🙂
Now, I’m off to make (or find in my stash) an “official” birthday card and wrap some presents.
