She celebrated

It's wonderful to be able
to add one more year to your life.

Pretty soon people will be saying,
"May you live to be so old
that your driving
terrifies people."

I think she has a lot of years ahead of her
before that happens.

Enjoy each day, Cass.
I hope your birthday was the best one yet!

Sympathy cards are not fun to create

But I hope they can provide a little bit of comfort
to the recipients.

Last night, a friend told me
the recipient of this card said,
"You always send the most beautiful cards."
That made me feel good.

He said ...

"The way to keep your woman
is to give her a beautiful card
and buy her flowers."

This card ...

had this on the inside
for his special message
to the woman he loves.

And it all went
inside this envelope.

I think she'll hang around!

24 years

It can't be.
I have a daughter that's old enough
to be married 24 years!!!!!

I remember the day.
It was a very cold and crisp day
in Anchorage, Alaska,
when they said "I do."

Happy anniversary, Mark and Alescia.

She has changed

Beverly never used to send cards.
Well, maybe 'rarely' is a better word than 'never.'
But now she does.
And a prerequisite is that they all have
at least one butterfly.

Rita's birthday is today
and I know she's already received her card.

Happy birthday - celebrate in style.

I couldn't wait!!!!!!!!!!!!

Her birthday is today.
She received her gift on Saturday
but she wanted to wait to open it
on her birthday.

I couldn't wait.
Called her last night and we FaceTimed.
Here's what she got.

I bought the letters and the skull a year ago!
The rest of the stuff were in my Halloween box.

Here's an up close of each letter.

I wish now I would have white-washed
the skeleton.  Darnit.

These will go with birthday gifts
from the last two years.
The pumpkin started
the Halloween-themed birthday gift in 2014.

It wasn't planned, but last year she got this crow.

Next year?
You'll have to wait and see.

Happy birthday to my sister!

Some recent cards

I'm a little late, but the cards were not!

Pete received hers right on time.

Sabrina's mother will receive this one tomorrow.

And The Runner
sent this thank you card to a friend.

I'll be delivering some tomorrow and the next day
as well as putting some in the mail.
Stay tuned ...

Today, it's all about the seams ...

and birthdays, too.

Have a wonderful birthday
and don't worry if those seams aren't straight.
Enjoy your day, Christy!

Sleepless in Seattle

Not sure if she's sleepless,
but she'll definitely be celebrating in Seattle.

Have a wonderful birthday, Nancy!

One year ...

A year ago yesterday, Nikki and Tiffany said "I do."

Keep the love alive!

Happy anniversary!

Ohhhhhhhhhh, how I miss her baking ...

She was the best baker.
She could give Betty Crocker a run for her money.
(And probably win!)

My mom borrowed many of her recipes
and passed them down to me.
But somehow,
the finished product never measure up to hers.

I know she didn't have to bake
her own birthday cake today.
Rather than a cake,
they're having cheeseCAKE.
Just as good!

Blow out those candles and have
a happy birthday, Charlotte.
Enjoy your day of celebrations!
