How to Celebrate a Year of Birthdays!

Birthday card created with Celebrations Duo and Birthday Adventures shared by Darla Olson at inkheaven
Celebrations Duo Embossing Folder & Balloon Adventures Bundle

How to celebrate a year of birthdays? Send a card! I know that is a simplistic answer…and maybe not quite what you were looking for. However, this past year there was a campaign started, by a sweet gal named Shannon, dubbed, “I’m Bringing Birthdays Back. The response was amazing! I think the response was amazing because:

  • Sending a card is easy
  • Everyone loves getting fun mail
  • The giver felt the joy of giving
  • Birthdays truly are special as they are limited
I joined the campaign and made the commitment to be better about sending birthday cards. I will admit, it was a challenge! Some were “belated.” But you know what? It felt great! Wouldn’t you like to feel great, too? I am making the same commitment for 2017. I hope you will join me! As nice as it is to get the “Happy Birthday” wishes on our Facebook pages; it is even nicer to open up the mailbox to see a bunch of cards! I know this from personal experience. I received quite a few cards from others who joined the challenge. To be honest, I kept mine on display for awhile! It was so nice to have my birthday be remembered in such a special way! You see, the sender had to make a personal investment to make it happen. That’s a big deal and a priceless commodity. I didn’t take it lightly!
This card is another one created with something new, something older, and something retired!  I used last year’s retired Sale-A-Bration set, Just for You (love that set!) for the …on your special day sentiment. Oh, and I swiped the color combo from the Party Animal Designer Series Paper. Ha ha! The Celebrations Duo Embossing Debossing Folders, Balloon Adventures Bundle, and Party Animal DSP will be available on January 4th! I am tons of excited! How excited are you? I will be showing cards with the coordinating stamp set for the Celerations Duo Folders eventually – but I want you to also see how well they will work with what you may already have!
