Cover Verse: There are in the end three things that last: faith, hope, and love, and the greatest of these is love. 1 Corinthians 13:13 Inside Verse: Though your heart must hold deep sadness right now, may it also hold the blessings of the love that will always be a part of you... Praying that God will comfort your heart, uplift your spirit, and carry you through this time of sadness.
Need a quick last minute birthday card you can make at home? This is often the case around my house… I spend days crafting the perfect DIY gift idea, and then the birthday card itself end up being an afterthought. Have you ever ended up purchasing an ugly store-bought greeting card because you ran out of time to make one for that awesome handmade gift you made? I certainly have. Now, though, I just keep a few rolls of washi tape in with my wrapping paper, along with some pretty white embossed paper. I found this cute handmade birthday card idea on Pinterest, and it has become my go to. Whip one up in minutes, but no one will ever know you did not spend hours making their card.

On your birthday, I want to give you something special to let you know how much I care for you. How often do we find ourselves seeking the perfect gift to give to those we love? We wish we lived in a world where money meant nothing, where we could procure any gift we wished for our friends and loved ones without thought of price. Except, where our best friends are concerned we DO live in a world where money means nothing… because the worth of a gift lies in the emotion of the giver and the quality of the recipient. In consideration of that, even the sweetest rose might doubt its worth when presented to the sweetest of best friends.
Whew, it feels like we just barely made it through the Christmas holiday season, but now Valentine’s Day is just around the corner! I made these ninja printable Valentine’s Day cards at the request of my seven-year-old son who asked if I would design “some valentines for boys – with no glittery hearts or love and all that girly stuff!” After reminding him that valentines cards are for Valentine’s Day and all, he finally relented and let me add a few hearts to the cards…as long as they weren’t glittery!

Your friend’s birthday comes only once a year, so be sure to be with him/her on this day. And whether or not you spend the day with your friend, you can always send a few angels their way to brighten their day and impart your best birthday wishes. These angels are cherubim — child angels — and they carry with them the message of eternal love and the youthful exuberance and joy of the divine, as expressed through the celebration of one’s life.
When it comes to birthdays, do you think the card matters as much as the gift? We do, and never want to be without the perfect handmade birthday card with a personal message. DIY birthday cards are one of the things people often keep longer than the gift, so we always want to make sure to give cards that are extra special and thoughtful. What better way to get a card like this than to make one? Well, this was my thought, anyway. However, when I went looking on Google and Pinterest for handmade DIY birthday card ideas, I did not find exactly what I was looking for. There were lots of free printables from big sites like Greeting Island, Blue Mountain, and even American Greetings, but those lacked the homemade touch I was going for. See, I make lots of my gifts, so adding a cheap looking printed card just won’t do. I was looking for inspiration and step by step tutorials for cute cards to make at home, ones I could be proud of. After the free cards, I came across more tutorials than I could count from sites trying to sell me scrapbook supplies and die cut templates. I understand you have to make money, DIY people, but please, don’t try to sell me stuff to make a simple greeting card, or at least show me I can make one without it. Not nice when you just want some birthday cards you can actually make! I was not looking for some frilly thing that came off looking like a scrapbook, anyway, thank you.
