Today is Steve's birthday ... it is tradition that when my kids turn 30, they receive 30 birthday cards. I started it with David and then with Amanda I added a theme --- cupcakes, and sent a lot of them unsigned so she could use them again. Even gave her a box of envelopes. Then for MY birthday she sent me a card I had made ... hmmm.
Anyway, gotta start thinking Steve ... a year to make 30 cards sounds like a lot of time but it would help to come up with an idea or two.
I got so many goodies for Christmas to play with - David got me some truly unique stamps in New York where he actually met the artist who was drawing them.
Amy gave me a wonderful flowery- spring-will-come collection and I am thinking I could make a card to cheer her up as the snow and cold just keep on coming in Michigan.
Mike ventured into the stamp store and picked up some fun toys for me.
I even got a free stamp and card from Clear Stamps - a little thing for them to do but really made me feel special.
Spent a long time yesterday playing with my copics and a new design from Designed to Delight --- will need to make some of these into cards too.
So here I am on the computer when I could be making cards with all my new supplies!
Here is a direct quote from Donna C but I love the sentiment and can't say it any better than she did ...
