My mom's 80th birthday cards surprise!My sweet stampers came through in a big way to make my mom’s 80th birthday extra special! You’ll see why when you look at all the handmade birthday cards she received. 


We had the family celebration the Saturday before her birthday. My mom and I planned to spend the day together having lunch out and doing some shopping. What she didn’t know was that she was about to be showered with birthday cards from women from coast to coast and Australia!


The look on her face as she opened the box was precious. I wrote that I’d wrap up all the cards and give them to her on her birthday. The box was wrapped with Paper Blooms Designer Series Paper (2021 Sale-a-bration free gift with $50 purchase) and Rococo Rose 1/2″ Scalloped Linen Ribbon. She could hardly believe how many handmade birthday cards were in that box!


My mom's 80th birthday cards surprise!


She spent two hours or longer carefully opening each envelope, admiring every card, and relishing the handwritten messages. She kept repeating that she couldn’t believe how kind it was of each and everyone who made and sent a card for her. 


Circumstances prevented her day from going as planned, but because of you, it ended on a high note!  Thank you from the bottom of my heart and my mom’s. Now enjoy as you feast your eyes on all this talent.



I’ve said before that I don’t believe we’ll know on this side of heaven how our handmade birthday cards and others have touched lives. In this case, there’s no guessing. She loved and appreciated every card! Cardmakers are truly special people. God bless you!
