Happy Birthday Michael

I find it very hard to believe that my youngest was 21 yesterday. He's currently at University in Chicago and I haven't seen him in the flesh since the beginning of December last year.

We do talk and managed to speak last night while he was walking home from college - the wonders of technology.

I did send him a card by snail mail. Luckily it arrived on Tuesday (having taken nearly 2 weeks) so it made it in time.

This is what I made for him.




I do enjoy a bit of paper engineering and I chose to adapt Kirsteen Gill's card (which measured 5.5" x 8.5") so that it fitted a UK C6 envelope. There were a few prototype mechanisms before I came up with one that I was happy with. 

The Stampin' Up! supplies used included:



I'm happy to report that Michael and his girlfriend were suitably impressed.
