Birthday Cards

How often do you send a Birthday card?
 How often is it a last minute purchase? 
How many do you forget?

I am notorious in our family I rarely send cards...... yes I know I make them but......

At the start of February I was having a conversation with a friend about cards and letter writing in general and how we no longer write letters and that cards are often a last minute thing and often only for birthdays not just note cards in the post. I went away to boarding school so letter writing was something I have always enjoyed but no longer do.
We made a pact we would send a minimum of 5 cards a month....thats more than one a week and they could be just a note so if I have your address watch for the post man!
In our jems team we have a birthday list - if I know you or you know me, or you are on the list you might just get a birthday card this year.......can't promise for next.

This is todays make, and its in the post today too. Just hope the recipient likes it.

I have used the aqua painter to colour the petals and the leaves. The flower centre is gold from the wink of stella pen, it is a very rich gold!
Other colours are the same as yesterday. Wisteria Wonder and Tip Top Taupe with a little green for the leaves.

                                                                                         The script for the sentiment is lovely. It is from the same set as the flower Birthday Blooms        It is available in my online shop for £17


  1. Love this card Karen.... Timeless Textures really adds the WOW factor.... And I know exactly what you mean about making lots of cards...but not remembering to send many!

    1. lol. I had a go at that embossing on the petals but made a right hash of it so had to stamp and paint another one. If you still have your card that you did it to can you bring it on Wednesday. k x
