Another Birthday Card DONE! Woowhooooo!


So I have a little birthday card club going on this year, where I send them out to not just family and real life friends.  But I'm sending them out to tons of cyber friends as well.  Something new I'm doing this year and I have to say my plan is working well.  I have pre-addressed all the envelopes and wrote the birthday where the stamp goes.  Then I filled them in order in a basket.  At a glance I can see which date is coming up next.  If I had not organized it at the beginning of the year, I would have never followed thorugh.  So far, so good.  So now I just have to decide who gets this one.  Hopefully it will bring a smile to someone's face!

Isn't that 1/2 circle cute.  It's a little sprial bound booklet of papers you can tear out by Making Memories.  And the Background DP is from one of my K&Company Paper Pads.  I have really become addicted to the paper pads since I started making cards.  The sentiment is from a new "Birthday" sentiments set by Fiskars.  Use my 40% off coupon at Joanns on this one!  It has some really funny birthday sentiments in it.
The lady and the yellow lacey swirls above the sentiment are from one of those little ATC collage booklets.  A girlfriend gave me one of each of hers because they come 3 pages of each design.  Thanks Patty!!!

This is absolutely awesome ... as is your idea! I'm doing basically the same thing but I have all the names written on a calendar and try to prepare ahead of time each card ... I think I like your idea better!!
BEAUTIFUL CREATION!!!
