For my darling son!!

This post is dedicated totally to my darling son, Aaryan. God! how much I yell at him sometimes!!!!!! Poor thing...

Yesterday, I sat down, after ages, to do a bit of pencil coloring on my stamped image. The image had so many little details that it took me a lot of time... Then, not knowing what to do with it, I created a simple easel card and used the (huge!) image there ;-)... didn't like the look of the card, so I just let it be on the table to see what everyone else at home would say to it. Aaryan woke up from his afternoon nap after a while; he came directly to where the card was kept; looked at it... and smiled! :-) He asked me if I had made it for his birthday (which is in January, he reminded me again). An idea struck me and I told him that though it wasn't for his birthday (I had used the same image for his bday last year!), he could give it to his teachers in school for the holidays. He was so thrilled with the idea that he took the card in his little hands, turned it over, figured out how he'd close it to give it to his teachers and also that they would really like it. He came and gave me a hug and said...'Thank you, Mamma... you have used a button too' :D He absolutely adores busy cards and he loves buttons...

(the incomplete card)

Anyway, the card was incomplete then... Today I just saw a bit of lace peeping from my lace box. It reminded me of a candy cane (the exact same pattern!!), so I made a giant candy cane using a popsicle stick, bits of chipboard and the lace... Added the sentiments and a house (too lazy for a gingerbread house... might still color it brown though) and viola!! I hope Aaryan likes the new additions to his card...
