special card

Post by Mrsfeefee on Wed 13 Jan 2010 - 20:50

thought you all might like to se this card my DS Mark got for his birthday.

Its is his birthday on christmas day and my nieces boyfriend made him this combined card.
He is in prison ( the boyfriend not Mark) so has very limited resources to use , no scissors or coloured card.
The ice hockey player and badge were cut from an old programme but the rest hes drawn himself mainly with nail clippers!

No, I'm not putting my 'to do' list here, that would be far to organised, PLUS I would have to keep it up to date  Laughing

Part of me wants to send him some 'proper' craft kit and part of me thinks, well he doesn't need it if he canproduce that from nothing. What an inspiration.
Please pass on our admiration.

I would imagine there's a lot of time to kill in prison.
Not that I want to try it

I wanted to send him some proper stuff too Karelyn but hes not allowed parcels and if you visit yu can't take anything in for him.

He uses cut up matchsticks for the decoupage stuck on with glue.
it just shows we don't really need to spend all our money on craft stuff , though i wouldn't admit that to Dh
