Online Card Class-Wild Card Day 4

So I am on to Day 4 of the Online Card Class Wild Card.

I actually had a practical reason to make a card today.  My Grandson Max turned 12 and I needed a Birthday Card for the occasion.  He got his own cell phone as his birthday present from his parents.  I phoned him to wish him a Happy Birthday and reminded him that Grandma was just a phone call away, should he need me.

To emphasize this event and my message, I made him a special birthday card.  Now, there are two things wrong with this card.  One is, he is probably not aware that phones used to come with curly little cords tying the receiver to the phone base as per my background.  The second thing is I am sure he has no idea who Carole King is, or that the sentiment is a quote from the the song “You’ve got a Friend” (James Taylor).  No matter, Grandma had fun making it and she means the sentiment.  So ok, in the winter he has to call Phoenix, but I WILL be there.

  1. I love your card and yes, I get what you mean about the 12 year old not knowing about curly cords. My granddaughter who is also 12 visited this summer and when she saw our house phone (a cordless one that sits on a base), she asked, ” What is this?” and when we told her a phone, she tried putting her finger on the window that displays date, time, etc. she asked, “Well how the heck does it work?”
