These pictures were created at my kitchen table as I sat doodling with my boys on rainy afternoons. From there they turned into a pile of birthday cards that sit in our office, awaiting upcoming birthdays. My boys now love to to each pick one out, color and write a special note to a friend, cousin, aunt, uncle or grandparent for their birthday. But honestly, I think I love them the most. I get some special moments watching my boys create their own special birthday message for a loved one and the big plus is that I don't have to make a trip to the store with four boys in tow to find and purchase a card. Wins everywhere!
To make your own birthday cards, draw some birthday sketches or better yet, have your kids draw some. If you have the tools, scan them into your computer and place the image two times on the right hand side of a normal 8 1/2 x 11 inch document. Then you can print onto card stock and cut the page in half. They are so easy to make and will turn into such great reprints for years to come.
If you'd like a digital version of these, check them out here. Print as many as you'd like for years to come.
