I often get orders for special cards, and if you've been visiting my blog for awhile you will have seen these ones. Apparently the 8 year old brother of that little girl was very jealous when she got hers, so I was asked by their Grandma to make him a special one too to keep the sibling rivalry at bay! He apparently loves robots, so I hope this one will make him happy on Valentine's Day. In the up-close pic you will see that the matchbox drawer slides open and inside it are lots of cute puffy hearts from Really Reasonable Ribbon and a little folded piece of notepaper for the love note! It's not too 'girly', so I hope he likes it.
I had all the little embellishments in my stash - the silver frame (from a buckle), the phone (no idea where it came from, but I've had it for many years and just knew I'd find a home for it one day!), glass pebbles and rhinestones. Matchboxes aren't easy to find these days, but luckily my DH used to smoke a pipe & cigars, so I have a stash of them, although he no longers smokes (thank goodness!)
