Happy Birthday, USA!

 In honor of our great nation's 240th birthday, I am making a pledge to help Bring Birthdays Back!  This #imbringingbirthdaysback movement started several months ago by one of Stampin' Up!'s awesome trainers, Shannon West.  You can read about her "movement" by CLICKING HERE.

The photo below shows a small portion of the birthday cards that I have been hoarding in my craft room since I became a Stampin' Up! demonstrator 8 years ago.  These are cards we made in my classes, or SWAPS that I received at Stampin' Up! events.  Even though I teach classes on how to make these beautiful cards - I am guilty of NOT SENDING THEM!  I have fallen into the trap of sending a quick birthday message using social media.  But that is not nearly the same as opening up the mailbox and seeing an envelope with handwriting.  And oh, the excitement of opening up the envelope and seeing what's inside - especially if it is a hand crafted beauty!

So, if you are missing the excitement and fun of receiving a birthday card with a hand written message inside - please leave a comment below with your birthday and then EMAIL ME with your  mailing address and I will send you a card on your next birthday!

You can join the movement, too!  Join me at my 4th Annual Birthday Bash  with bingo and breakfast.  You will learn how easy and fun it is to create birthday cards like these,  Take advantage of early bird pricing ($20)  if you prepay by July 8th.  Just click on the Pay Pal link at the top of the page to reserve your spot.  More details can be found BY CLICKING HERE
