It's not just the $5 plus price tag, or the time it takes standing at the newsagent trying to find just the right one. It's the expectation of the recipient too...some people would be disappointed to receive anything but a hand made card. And it just doesn't feel right.
All of this can be a bit of a problem, when your hand made card stash is on the brink of non-existent, and you have a couple of important neice/ nephew birthdays coming up, which is where I found myself this morning. (Actually, the cards/gifts should have been posted last week...gulp)
So here are some new cards...
This one for the very important neice, who turned 12...um...yesterday.
And this one for the very important nephew who is a couple of years older than that, and whose birthday is on this weekend...gulp. Sorry guys...Aunty Suzi is experiencing some unavoidable delays, but your cards and gifts are on their way...um...tomorrow.
Late late late.
