happy bee-lated birthday...


Everybody needs a stash of belated birthday cards:


I used MME paper and 

The Craft's Meow


I was inspired by the current CAS-ual Friday Challenge:



I gotta tell you, I have a gazillion cards...seriously, I'm a prolific card maker but can't seem to send out those gazillion cards...what.the.heck.

I thought I'd be proactive and just start making belated birthday cards:)

Seriously though, my goal is to send out 1 card this week....I'll gradually bump it up but realistically it's a challenge for me...don't know why...but I know I'm not alone.  

Want to join me in my happy mail challenge?

  5. Hey Amy I'm with you on the not sending out as many cards as I should, for how many cards I make! I did mail out 2 Mother's Day cards and a Thank you card recently—so there's hope! ;) Love your tall Bee-lated Birthday card!

  12. I make the cards and never seem to mail them, too! I think my problem is that I make my cards too darn bumpy to go through the mail. ;)

  27. I wonder how many crafters are just like you (and me...hanging my head in shame). We crank out the projects and cards, and then never get around to sending them out. I will join you on your vow to send more happiness out through the mail! Besides, my finished card stash is getting way too big and overflowing!
