A card for my son

My baby boy had a birthday recently not that he's small any more, towers above me and is a grown man,but he'll always be my baby. He makes us so proud as he wasn't given much chance of survival born at 2lb 10oz and 13 and a half weeks before he should have been. He has always been inpatient and life has been tough but he fights against his cerebral palsy daily and has achieved so much.

My card sums him up a total geek , he works on a computer all day and spends many hours of leisure time still attached to a computer. This Penny black image is typical of him on a weekend and though we went out for a wonderful birthday meal with friends as soon as he was home it was back to flying space ships , or dinosaurs or building roller coasters or whatever his game of choice was for the day,talking to friends around the globe.

I love the sentiment it just seemed so perfect and it came with the image so a great deal.


The happy birthday son were cut with dies from Britannia from blue mirri card.

It made him smile so was worth it just for that.
