Birthdays, Birthdays Everywhere, and Not a Dime to Spare!

http://wearethatfamily.com/features/
We've had so many birthdays around here.  My step-daughter, mom, and husband in January.  My sister and her husband in February.  My nephew, mother-in-law, father-in-law, and brother-in-law already in March, and it's only the 5th!

I really don't like the idea of spending 4 or 5 dollars on a card.  Sometimes I don't have much more than that to spend on an entire gift for someone.

That's why I'm so excited we learned to make a cute card at the make-and-take at Archiver's this past Saturday night.  I'd show you a picture, but I already gave away the one I made.  Guess what I'm going to be saving money on in the near future.  I can't wait to make another one and post it here.  It's so cute, and it's easy to make!  And it has that special, hand-made touch.  All I have to do is write a pretty verse inside and send it.  I really can just look up verses on the Internet that I can use depending on what type of card it is.  Works for me!

Do you prefer to get store-bought or handmade cards?

I love a homemade card. I cannot stand to spend money on them, most people just don't pay attention to a card so it's frustrating for it to cost so much. We bought the girls a Cuttlebug for Christmas, I am LOOOOOVING that they are making all the cards for any & every occassion now. YAY :)

You know I'm totally wondering what the anon comment said! :)

I like homemade better than store bought, but really, a gift tag works just as well for me!
