By the time I had got Birka’s address and then found the time to focus and actually write in the card I made for her, it was an embarrassingly long time after her birthday. In fact, it was getting dangerously close to Christmas.
The start of the month brings another freebie digi stamp in the newsletter from The East Wind and another challenge; this time the theme is “in the pink”, inviting pink projects and ones supporting breast cancer awareness.
How quickly time flies; a year has already passed since I was making a welcome card for baby Amelia. Of course, I forgot to put her birthday on my cards to-do list so I didn’t get a reminder to start making this card — I normally give myself plenty of time to come up with card ideas, but this had to be go from “no idea” to “in the post” in short order.
After much pondering, my poor cold-addled brain finally came up with the idea of having a large number one with some animals on balloons. I also saw the opportunity to use the Mama Elephant rainbow die that I’d just picked up from Seven Hills Crafts. I could probably have used one of my (many) so-far-unused stamp sets, but the carnival cupcakes critters were just perfect for this card.
