This is one of a series of cards I did for my grandmother's b-day. There's over 100 people on my dad's side of the family, and she sends a b-day card to EVERY one of us!!! And they're always on time or early.
So I decided to make a ton of cards for her to be able to send out--I'm sure that the cost of her cards adds up quickly! I did 6 of each of the 8 designs. Nearly 50 cards, MANY hours, and $25 in expidited shipping costs later, she got them....on time!!!

Cute!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i love it, it is so bright and cheey,,,, great idea to do for your grandmother. I am sorta doing the same for my mom and I print off the envelopes with the addresses and then mark the birthday on the inside flap so she remembers when to send them,,, i will definitely be using this idea,,, tfs
