A few years ago I made a point to try to send out birthday cards to every family member, close friend, and even some random people. Like the President, Taylor Swift, Mickey Mouse, and Phil Mickelson. Oh wait…those were wedding invitations. Want to guess which two responded?
I have officially done a great job (if I do say so myself) of sending out cards to everyone. Or at least to all the birthday’s I’m aware of (thank you Facebook!). Cards can break the bank when you have 121 to buy. And yes, I totally counted. Either I hit up the Dollar Tree for 2/$1 cards, or I attempt to create something a little more personal. Who gets which card has nothing to do with how much I love them. Nothing at all. I suppose they know they’re really special when they get a gift too. If it’s handmade, extra point for them.
(Really my main goal is just to be overwhelmed with birthday cards on my own birthday. So far, this hasn’t happened. Each year I lose a little more hope.)
I found this card online (with a free printable and instructions) and I LOVE it. How fun is it? Visit Oh Happy Day in the link above for the instructions. Plus, she has cute little videos that look much more magical than my photo. I just couldn’t do it justice.
