Abi's birthday gift


        Today my son Abi is turning 16. I decided to quill some things that he likes the most and give it to him as his birthday gift. Anyone who knows Abi will tell he can't do without books. He is a voracious reader and is so well informed.My first gift was a stack of books. Akhil came to my rescue and showed me a logo which had two  red socks and said that his anna(elder brother) will be delighted if I quilled the logo of Boston red sox.

       I always pride on knowing every thing about my kids and I was surprised that Abi should have a favourite baseball team and more so as baseball is not popular in India.

      Once I decided on the logo I decided to make fridge magnets and gift them to him. My husband wanted a card to write our wishes so I stuck them all on to the card without the magnets but gave the magnets to him, for him to use as he wishes. 
   
He  has always been crazy about cars since he was a little kid and can't wait to drive one.It has not been easy at all quilling for my kids ,they have seen me quill so much that nothing surprises them. And to quill for them without their seeing, I have found is impossible.





After i finished this card i realised that this card would be right for a six year old as well. I wonder if I will ever think  my kids grownup .And he was delighted with the logo:)

 I can't thank my fellow blogger's enough for their support , I don't think I would have learned so much if it were not for these talented people who share their work and tutorials . Blogging has helped me learn so many different techniques and styles which no one book can give.Thank you .


Thanks for stopping by , have a creative day.

First, convey my best wishes to Abhi for a Very Happy Birthday! I really like all the new techniques that you use. The crimped paper you have used at the back gives a very good effect and is an excellent idea for a fridge magnet!

This is a one of a kind birthday card. The ice cream looks so delicious. I especially like the piece looks like the melting ice cream, so cute!

And congrats to all the awards you've received.

I absolutely agree about the blog land offered so many techniques and inspiration. That's the reason I don't buy craft books. So many things to learn here.

Have a wonderful weekend!
