Does anyone other than me actually sit down and draw simple birthday cards, you know with a permanent marker and colored card stock? As you can see, I do, and fortunately so, as how else would I make a cute birthday card from the heart in ten minutes or so, in a pinch? Fourteen years ago today I gave birth to a sweet baby boy, and so today as my husband rushed off to pick him up at school and head out of the country for their yearly Rosh HaShana men's get away (that we women are honestly thrilled about, truly) I of course had to send some birthday treats, and at the least a card!
Other years I have sent birthday decorations and all kinds of things, but now that he is a big whopping fourteen, I know he'd rather celebrate in a slightly more private and less creativejewishmom manner, as they will be staying with a slew of other men and boys who do not have wives/mothers that would ever in a million years dream of sending birthday decorations in the suitcase!
And so there you have it, sometimes just a very simple card, with a theme that relates to the person (there are coins on the back, but didn't have time to capture that.....) really does the trick.......hoping that is the case here, and if not well we can always celebrate when he comes home!
So dear readers, as long as you have colored card stock and black markers on hand at all times, you can always whip up something that is just as cute as anything made with fancy paper and art supplies!
