I love getting Happy Mail.
Shannon West at Stampin' Up! is making lots
of people happy this year by sending birthday
cards. She has been sending thousands.
And I am one of the lucky recipients that
received a card from her. As with most cards,
they sparkle so much more when you see them
up close. I tried my best to capture the glitter
on this card and the fine gold thread that just
adds a touch of elegance to an already
Inside the card contains a handwritten message
from Shannon. In classes, I am often asked if I
have sentiments to stamp on the inside of cards.
The stamped sentiments are nice but I gotta tell
you, receiving a hand written message is so
special and meaningful. You might be thinking,
"my handwriting is too messy"
"or they won't be able to read it"
Trust me, they will be able to read it.
And if they can't figure it out, then when you see
them you will have something fun to talk about.
I lost my father when I was almost 16. He had already
signed my "sweet sixteen" birthday card and that
card is framed and I treasure that hand writing and
the memories we shared.
Thank you Shannon for the birthday card, the sweet
sentiment inside in your own handwriting and
thank you for #imbringingbirthdaysback
Thanks for visiting today!
