1 In Birthday/ Cards/ Celebrations/ Wedding / Anniversary


January 29, 2016

I was one of m-a-n-y recipients of a birthday card from Shannon West, awesome employee at Stampin’ Up!, in January.  Shannon posted a self-challenge on FaceBook earlier in January to see just how many cards she could mail because, in her words:


I think there’s a ‘thing’ going on.  Maybe it’s the new year and stampers’ resolutions, but I had challenged myself to do the same thing this year–before I heard of Shannon’s challenge.  That is, to make sure I send a birthday card to everyone who’s birth date I know, male and female alike.  Watch for my February newsletter because I’ll be asking you again if you’d like to receive a birthday card from me



Isn’t this card so simple and clean?  I welcomed it into my home with the love with which it was sent.  It just makes me smile.

Seeing Happy Birthday cards in lots and lots mail boxes rather than only Happy Birthday greetings on Facebook pages would be awesome!  And please don’t get me wrong:  I love all the FB birthday greetings!  But there’s also something about a card in the hand.

We want to make the Post Office l-o-v-e us.  Keep them in business!  And most importantly, it’s really just so important to being a little sunshine into everyone’s life that you can.  With that, I’m going to challenge my readers to make more cards and then to take those handmade birthday/anniversary/thinking of you cards and mail them out.  Whatd’ya think?  Can you do it?  Join me in making 2016 the year of the hand stamped and mailed greeting card.

I’m sorry, but I don’t know what stamp set was used for the VersaMark flower bits or the Happy Birthday greeting.  I just know that I love the card!  Feel free to let me know those two missing supplies.  🙂
