Birthday Cards for Son and his son

Here is the front of a card I have made for my son's partner's son... complicated!! I used my new shades of alcohol inks in line layers, to create the background, then overprinted trees and pergoda from Lavinia stamps. Below is the backer, where I used the tool to make a more dotty background. He is a young teenager and I don't know him well, so I hope he likes it. it is late as I was in hospital for his birthday.

My son (my baby!!) is 36 on Sunday!!!! Ridiculous that he is that old, cos I am SO young!!! This is the front, and below is the back. I used the pear tag and some wonderful Dove of the East paper. I hope he likes it... I have not seen him for nearly 2 years... Sad that I seem to have lost him when I lost his dad... he is busy with his partner and work and new house etc. Oh well...

Thanks for looking

Beautiful cards Frankie. Your son will love his. Sorry to hear you've not seem him for a while. He's probably a bit like my brother. So wrapped up in his own life that he forgets the life he had before. Hope you see him soon. And the other young man should be over the moon with such a special card.
