I've figured out that probably about 95% of the cards I make, I make just for the fun of it. Only 5% are actually made with a specific person in mind. So naturally when a card is made for someone in particular, it becomes that much more special. Especially when that someone is my youngest, who is going to be 11 on Thursday! I honestly don't know where the years have gone!
So, a card for my son. One of those must contain 2 things. First one or more bears. When he was 4 years old, he had so much fun playing "goldilocks and the three bears" with us one day, that he insisted on being called "Baby Bear" ever since. It stuck. My baby bear has Aspergers. This means he can get pretty obsessive about things, and bears are an example of that. He started collecting teddies a few years ago, and has over 100 of them now! He is also, despite being almost 11, really big on cuddles. I personally think this is a great thing! lol.
The second thing the card must have is the colour blue. Preferably light blue. It is his favourite colour, and another thing he can get very obsessive about. (They learnt the hard way at school that it was probably best to let him be on the blue team on sports days! lol)
Anyways, The other day I won a digi over at Beccy's Place and I knew immediately which one it would have to be!
And there we go. A card for my baby bear. (Excuse the rubbish handwriting on my part, lol) I hope he likes it!
