Hi again bloggies!
I am just popping by quickly to share a card I made for a sweet niece and a lovely friend. Yes … I almost always create 2 of each card that I design! It is the only way I find I can keep on top of my annual card list of 87 cards! That does not include unexpected ones like … sympathy, thank yous, baby, get well, engagement, wedding, encouragement etc. The 87 are just for regular birthday & anniversary cards for family and close friends. And … on top of that … there are the 50 or so Christmas cards! Yikes! That is a bit scary when you think about it!
So … (87 + approx 25 extra) X $6 (Avg cost of a nice card these days) = $672 … + 50 X $3 (Christmas cards) … TOTAL = $822! Hhhhmmmm …. I wonder if I am actually saving money making my own cards? Ha! But … it’s not about the cash is it?!? A handmade card is worth more than just the $$ value! There is the “made with love” value and the “fun” value to add in. 🙂 Well, I think so anyway! 😉
