My sister, Aly's birthday card
Birthday card for my grandma
These are the greeting cards that I worked on making tonight. The first is a birthday card for my little sister Aly. I can't believe she's going to be 21! The sentiment is a silly private joke stemming from some YouTube video about muffins that she finds hilarious. The second card is for my Grandmother who lives in Virginia and I never get to see. I called my mom tonight and told her I would make a card to send her from the family. I used the DCWV Sweet Stack, some Bazzill Bling paper, and some decorative staples and 3-D ice cream sticker. The last card is a multi-purpose cheer up card for my co-worker Tim who unfortunately just had his brother in FL pass away from a heart attack. He loves the Boston Red Sox, and his birthday was just a week ago, so I wanted to make a card to let him know I was thinking of him and that I was there for him. He's a great guy, and I feel bad that he's going through so much. I am a firm believer in handmade cards having some magical power though, even if it's just makes the receiver smile for a moment, in that moment they know they are loved. For my sister, we can joke through the card; for my grandmother, the card will bridge the miles between us; and for Tim, he will know he's not alone.
