Making a Birthday Card

Hi, it's Marzi.

Today I made a card for Henry because it is his birthday in 3 days. I have never made a card before but I was feeling crafty and inspired. Just in case you do not know, I am Henry's real Dad. I know it might be hard to believe because he looks more like a Yoda than like me... But it is true. I was there when he was borned. 

Since I haven't yet figured out what to give Henry for a present, I knew I had to get the card done right away.

First I had to pick out the colors. I know that Henry likes BRIGHT colors.

 Then I had to concentrate real hard and come up with a plan. 

I didn't have much paper so I could not make a mistake.

 I got distracted a little and made a few mistakes.  

About an hour later Soon after I came up with an idea for the card!

 I had to stay really focused. That was hard. 

I made another mistake when I remembered there is no spell check.

I hope that Henry likes his card! 

Now I have to brainstorm for what to get him for a present.


  1. Awww, it's such a great card!!

    We would like to suggest getting him some NIP. That is always a great present. Or some tuna! Or Greenies! mmmm Greenies...

  2. That's one cool card Marzi, Henry will be delighted, well done!
    Live mousies always make a good present!

  3. I think your card is awesome!

  4. That card came out great! But if it takes you that long to come up with a present...Henry may be waiting a while! ;)

  5. Marzi, you sure are nice...that must be why Henry is so nice!
    That card is perfect and I am certain Henry will be touched by your thoughtfulness.
    I'm not sure what you might give him as a present...but I am certain he would be pleased with almost anything :)

    respectfully yours,

  6. That's a fantastic card, Marzi! You are such a kind and caring dad. We think Henry will love whatever you decide to give him. Food or toys that he likes are always good choices. Purrs.
