Today, September 16th, is my brother’s birthday.
We have always exchanged cards on birthdays. This year, just as it has been in previous years, I was so disappointed with the “Happy Birthday Brother” card selections.
They are all so “stuffy”, trees, streams of water, mountains, just nothing that has ever appealed to me for my brother.
I wanted something fun, with some “bling”, some color.
Finally I found a card I really liked, the front was bright, and full of cupcakes!
The only problem, the inside of the card was blank.
So, I decided to make it “personal”.
Typed and printed out my own greeting that tied the cupcakes on the front to a really sweet memory of another birthday several years ago.
I added a photo, another personal touch, of my brother, sister, and myself as children.
Used photo corners to attach both to the card.
For a little more fun, I added a “party” hat to my brother’s head using “Pic Monkey“. It really turned out so cute!
Added a bit of glitter to the confetti on the card, and an extra comment to the photo.
I really hope when I call my brother tonight, he is pleased.
This is just an idea for making cards, special, and as I said, “personal”.
When you put time into something like this, it makes the card itself a gift to the person you love.
Blessings to all, and especially to my dear sweet brother.
I love you Denny!
