About Me

Thank you for stopping by and getting to know me! My husband and I have enjoyed 22 years of marriage together. We have three grown children: our daughter who has given us three adorable grandchildren--two girls and one boy, ages 8, 5 and 3. We also have twin sons, one married and one single, with another adorable grandson age 4. Our lives are full and blessed. My husband works in the aviation industry and we've managed to be transferred every five years since 1995. We've lived in St. Louis, Missouri (our hometown), Hershey, Pennsylvania, Crossville, Tennessee, and now Newnan, Georgia. We love the diversity we've encountered with all of the wonderful places we've lived. We've met lifelong friends whom we will cherish forever and have learned so many things.

Masculine Birthday Card

This is the flip-side of this masculine birthday card. As you can see, I attached a simple tag with my handwritten "Happy Birthday". It was relatively simple to create and the results were well worthwhile. My friend expressed her delight when she received it in the mail. That, in and of itself, made my day.

It may be difficult to see, but the face of the envelope was designed to compliment the card, and I also lined the inside with corresponding papers. I attached silk autumn leaves with a brad to the front of the envelope, knowing this card was NOT going to go through the U.S. Postal System. I had to learn that lesson the hard way--they lost a very personal card in which I put my heart and soul into for my daughter. I'm certain it was chewed up in one of their machines.

I hope you enjoy my first card post!!

Happy Sunday!
