Wishing some people I know the Happiest of Birthdays! I think that the best part of making cards is actually sending them. However, I think all of us are a little guilty of not sending them as often as we could. With everything going on these days, it is more important to reach out to others and let them know that you care about them. Birthdays are one of the best occasions to do that.
Join me today as I make a few birthday cards for a few people that are very special to me. And even though one of them is a belated birthday wish, the Happiest of Birthdays stamp set has me covered.
My Challenge to You
I had the privilege to spend all day Saturday with my Stampin’ Up team and friends. (Virtually, of course.) We had such an amazing day observing World Card Making Day. Learning and laughing together all while making some cards! We discussed the importance of actually sending our cards. I would like to challenge you to make and send five cards in the next week. They can be any type of card. You could also contact your local nursing home, hospice, or children’s home to see if they could use any donated cards for those in their care. Share some love in an envelope this week!
