But I have to tell you...my husband is so cute. He borrowed my Cricut to make my birthday card. And then he wrote a cute little poem in the card. It was so sweet...I just started giggling because it is so out of character for him.
Next week is my mother-in-law's b-day so I just made her a card/package and I sent off that card/package for my sister-in-law's baby today. For my MIL card. I used the punch and layered it with ribbon and added a b-day sticker I had and added a gemstone for the candle above the cupcake. Nothing fancy, but it's better than paying $4.00 for a card from the store. I think handmade cards say so much more to the recipients than a store bought card. I also like the blank cards better, because it forces the sender to write something more than just their names. I've gotten quite a few compliments on the letters I've written to people. I think the art of writing letters is dying out because of all the text messaging, advances in technology, cell phones, Twittering, e-mail, etc. Sometimes it's nice knowing someone took the time out of their day to slow down and write out a real note. I don't like getting those cards where someone just signs their name on a card. But that's just me. Anyways, I'm off my soapbox now. Here's what you came for...here's the picture of my MIL card. Enjoy and I hope to have something different for you later on this week. Have a great rest of your week---it's almost Friday---yeah!!!
