Grandma P’s Birthday Card

March 9, 2015

It is Luke’s Grandma’s (Luke’s Dad’s Step-Mother{bit of a mouthful!}) birthday on the 10th of March and we have heard that she’s been feeling a little down in the dumps lately. After a brief discussion with Luke’s Dad, Luke and I decided we’d make her a birthday card and hope that it gets to her in time.

Please excuse the poor photography – I had to snap these really quickly so that I could get it all wrapped up and off to the post office before it was too late and we missed the mail for the day! AND the card got crumpled by toddler feet! Argh!

Toddler Handmade Birthday Card. Flower Cards. Spring Cards. http://lukeosaurusandme.blogspot.co.uk/2015/03/grandma-ps-birthday-card.html
Tulips! Or some variety of spring flower. That’s what we were going for, anyway. So we had hardly any time to get this all done and dried in time to make the last post collection of the day. We needed a design that was really quick, cute and didn’t take an age to dry.
This card probably took us less than ten minutes to produce and maybe about half an hour to dry. Great for when you’re up against a deadline. Also great when you have a toddler who tends to get really bored, really quickly – which is totally Luke these days.

I think that it’s a really sweet design; the ‘less is more’ kind of vibe. It’s something that is so quick and easy, yet I just know is going to make Luke’s Grandma’s day. And that makes me feel a little bit warm and fuzzy on the inside, as she is such a lovely lady.

So it’s not exactly a Supermum crafty masterpiece, but I wouldn’t be too miffed if I received it as a surprise in the post, so I hope Luke’s Grandma will appreciate it!

The best thing about this is probably how easy it is to make – I think this would be a wonderful home made Mother’s Day gift AND it’s pretty much do-able for any age – baby or toddler.

I hope you agree with me, and I hope Luke’s Grandma does too!

Once the paint had dried (it’s not even watercolours, it’s Crayola Water Based Paint that I watered down a bit for quick drying purposes – which I suppose kinda does make it water colour but… I don’t know!) we flipped the paper over and just wrote a lovely message on the back and enclosed the most recent picture of Luke we have, that was taken and printed just two weeks ago.

We really hope you like it, Grandma P!
