Funny Birthday Cards!

Many people enjoy receiving a birthday card that makes them laugh! Especially birthday people who have celebrated many, many birthdays!

No matter what kind of a birthday card you choose to give, it is extra nice to present a real card! They can look at it later, display it, and remember their celebration. Plus, they will appreciate your thoughtfulness!

Here are two funny birthdays cards I created that will result in a smile, maybe even a chuckle or two!

I used the stamp set from ‘Inky Antics‘ to create this funny birthday card. When you scratch off the circles, the words ‘liver spots’, “wrinkles”, and “adult diapers” are revealed. There are many other words included in this set, and you can even create you own!

There are many embossing folders on the craft market. I chose one that looks like a quilt to create this next card. I used the top portion of an “Art Impressions” stamp of an old woman and tucked her in bed. My customer really liked this card!

What Can You Do with a Graduation Gown?

(I thought I would share this idea I posted a few years ago, since graduation time is here again! )

This is the time of year for graduations and celebrations! Many graduates will be bringing home their grad caps, tassels, and graduation gowns after their commencement ceremonies. Chances are, they will not be taking them when they move to college or start their new careers. These once treasured items will be left at home.

When my eldest son graduated from high school in 2007, he kept his graduation gown and cap. (Of course, since we had to purchase them!) His cap was put in a drawer, along with his tassel. His graduation gown was hung in his closet.

When he went away to college, I was organizing his closet a bit to make room for some of my clothes that I didn’t wear often. (His room has the largest closet in our home.) As I was hanging some of my ‘dressy’…

Time for Thank You Cards!

School days are coming to a close soon, so there will be more activities planned around kids and their families. Perhaps a vacation is in the horizon, or just getting together with family and friends for a BBQ or event.

Everyone usually shares in providing food and supplies to family events or gatherings with friends. It is a team effort to make the event come together, especially when you are the host!

Whatever your plans are, remember to thank everyone for their help. A couple of days after, it will be nice for someone to receive a thank you card in their street mailbox. It will show them how they are appreciated, and remind them of the good time they shared with friends or family.

Do you keep thank you cards on hand? There is always a reason to give one, and having them available makes it easier to jot a personal note inside and put it in the mail! (Remember to keep some postage stamps around too! There are so many different images on them to add variety!)
