Gongrats to the parents of Roxanne! Their little girl was their very special Valentines gift last week. Mama & Papa met us at Elftopia and decided that the story of little Roxanne needed a big friendly dragon in it. They contacted us for a custom made birth announcement card and ordered a big version (40x50 cm) of the original painting. The size of the painting allowed alot more detail. The big friendly dragon will be joining little Roxanne in her room :).
Sketches were sent back and forward: Mama and Papa have a passion for sailing so a boat on the card was added, their pet turtle was moved from the water to the land (because we learned land turtles can't swim), and their lovely dog also found a place on the front of the card. Mama and Papa thought it would be a good idea to decorate the little jars with treats (suikerbonen) with the theme of the card, so they ordered some stickers for the lids.
With everything ready, the waiting game begins. Around midnight on Valentine's day, Roxanne decided it was time to meet her parents. Papa sent us a text and a few days later they could pick up their cards from a pick-up point near them. We hear that little Roxanne is a good sleeper, so maybe the back of the card was a self fulfilling prophecy ;).
because you can't start early enough
