Have a wonderful day,
As I have said before, I have joined the Band Wagon of Shannon West of Stampin' Up!'s #imbringingbirthdaysback. What a great thing to do and bring back sending out Birthday Cards? Our group of Blog Hoppers have also joined in with this drive as well. I hope you get inspired by all these wonderful ladies.
I have been saving this share since January. I am in a swap and we have agreed not to share the swaps until the beginning of the next month. When the themes were decided, I decided to share this card for this blog Hop. This card uses 2 of my favorite stamp sets from the Occasions Catalog, Timeless textures and Number of Years.
I also used the Timeless Textures in this card as well.
If you want to get on my list, add a comment with your birthday and I will send you a Birthday Card. And if you want to join #imbringingbirhtdaysback, join us. The more the merrier.
Now off to Susan Campfield's blog and see her amazing creations.
And if you missed Sue Lehrer's Blog and her amazing creation, click below to go back.
So my gift for you for this Blog Hop, here is a PDF file with the instructions to make the first card.
I hope you can make some time today to craft.
Have you seen that great stamp set in the Occasion's Catalog called Going Places? I am doing a Stamp Set of the Month using it. Here is the information on it.
What better set, to get some of those masculine cards done for those guys in your life. Also, Father's day is just around the corner.
Also, did you see my announcement on Tuesday about joining the Band Wagon to #imbringingbirthdaysback? I got my very own stamp set on Wednesday and have some cards ready to go out for this month.
Are you wanting a card? Just leave a comment here or on my Facebook page. I need your birthday date and then I will message back to get your address. I am only committed to this year, in Canada only, but if your birthday has passed, no worries........... you have a 1/2 Birthday date right? Leave a comment and if you want to join in the movement, leave another comment as well. This is going to be fun.
Have a wonderful day.
Do you send out Birthday Cards? or do you send them by email or other Social Media? Or do you give that special someone a phone call? Well as of today, I am joining Shannon West's Band Wagon #imbringingbirthdaysback.
Read this article that was posted on Stampin' Up! Blog.
By Shannon West, Demonstrator Training Manager
It started one Saturday in January. I was kicking myself for not sending out my Christmas cards, but I also noticed that many friends had simply posted their Christmas cards on Facebook rather than sending them in the mail. For years I’ve complained about Facebook ruining birthday cards and now it would seem the same was happening to Christmas cards. A handmade, handwritten card in the mailbox seemed to be nearly extinct—and I was contributing to the problem! I wanted to do something drastic and immediate to stop this neglect and hold myself accountable.
So that Saturday in January, I made a decision: I posted on Facebook that I would send a birthday card to any of my friends that wanted one. I didn’t think about the possibilities or consequences…I just posted and was astonished when the responses started rolling in.
After 24 hours, I had over 300 responses…far more than I had ever received on a previous post. I started a spreadsheet to keep track and went to work making and sending birthday cards.
Two days later, I posted a photo of my first set of cards that I was sending. At this point, my posts started to be shared and others started posting that they were also sending cards to their friends. These results were an absolute surprise!
As my friends began receiving their cards, they posted photos of them on social media to thank me. This sparked another idea: there needed to be a way to easily see all the cards—my cards and others’ cards too—so that we could see all the different ideas to CASE (Copy And Share Everything). Playing on the lyrics of a Justin Timberlake song, the hashtag #imbringingbirthdaysback was born! I wanted to stamp it on each card so that the receiver would know to use the hashtag if they posted the card, so I carved my very own #imbringingbirthdaysback stamp.
As my spreadsheet of birthdays grew (it’s currently 1,327 names strong!), the sharing grew. There is something special about a birthday. It’s your special day—you get to dictate what happens that day and it’s yours to own and craft. And EVERYONE has one. It seems this unexpectedly played into the development of this movement. And it wasn’t difficult to sense the happiness and excitement that one feels when simply sending cards…that was a factor in the excitement that built around the movement too, of course.
After a few weeks, Sara approached me and asked how Stampin’ up! could support the movement—after all, making and sending cards is what Stampin’ Up! has always been focused on (Shelli still sends every single employee a birthday card each year!). I also got to share my story on a local news program.
SO................. I too will help in her cause this year. Did you want a hand created Birthday card from me?
If you live in Canada ( sorry I still work full time and feel that I have to limit this to one country) and would like a card sent to you, leave a comment with your name and birthday. You will then need to pm me with your address and name and I will get a card out in the mail for your special day.
Let's bring back Birthdays.
Have a wonderful day.
