I thought I'd share the birthday cards that I sent out last month. Usually birthdays fly by with a whooshing sound and then a couple of days later I ask, "What was that?" So I'm rather proud that I not only made some cards but I mailed them out as well.
The cupcake card was made after I rummaged around in my red paper drawer and discovered that almost all the papers in there were a brick red. I knew that wouldn't really do for Valentine's Day so I'd have to use them for other occasions. I liked this piece because all the colored dots were glittered.
The next card I made after reading someone's blog (eek-sorry, I forgot who) and she was talking about how she saves many non-stamping bits like interesting packaging and the like but doesn't think to use it much. I had to agree. In fact, I've learned to not save it. However, that night when I went to make a card I found a shimmery piece I'd saved from a gift card from years ago so of course I had to use it just to show I could!
