Handmade Christmas Gift Idea...

If you're looking for a gift that will last all year long, this idea is for you!

For the past couple of years, my Christmas gift to my Dad and Mom has been birthday cards. I make enough birthday cards for them to give to their children and grandchildren for the year. It's a win-win situation for all of us....they don't have to worry about buying birthday cards each month, and I get my 'fix' by being able to create them.

These are the cards they'll be getting this year.
The ones with the flowers are obviously for the girls, and the star ones are for the boys. You can't tell from the picture, but I used a foam square on the star to give it a 3-D look.

I had fun making these cards (all 27 of them) and look forward to getting mine on my birthday!!

That is a great idea! I have a friend who has a stamping business and gives me cards for Christmas and I love it!

Hope you are having a great day Misty!
