Oh, hi. Still there? Sorry…
Turns out planning a wedding is complicated stuff, along with wrapping up the school year and spending a week in Guatemala. Oh, and my birthday was in there too.
I thought it would be tough to top last year’s Forced-Gifting Party, but this year was pretty awesome too.
…even if all I have to show for it is a rock.
It’s a lava rock, and I got it from the volcano I climbed on my birthday (I know, right?). We climbed Volcan Pacaya in Guatemala and then we roasted marshmallows* in the hot spots and our group sang me Happy Birthday and gave me M & Ms and then we went back to town. Where we wandered around and saw an amazing convent and then went to dinner at a fancy hotel where a mariachi band sang to me too. And then I got a cupcake. Oh yeah, and I should clearly start a travel blog, right? (Maybe not so much).
Back to the point.
My birthday was Saturday and now I need to send some Thank You cards!
So I whipped these up super fast–Just some colored paper, a single pack of embellishments and colored pens.
I used the same basic idea on all of them, with a strip of paper going all the way across and then a little notched pennant, offset (or not) and layered (or not) with an embellishment anchoring it. Quick, easy and cute.
Do you make your own cards? What’s your favorite one?
*Technically we…warmed them? They got puffy but they didn’t change colors. And marshmallows in Guatemala are oddly technicolor, so that was strange too. But still mostly delicious.
