another birthday card and a sympathy card

So far I have been able to keep up with the birthdays at work. Yeah, I know it has only been one month's worth of birthdays. There are only 80 to 85 people in the school so hopefully I can do it. This is the last birthday of the month. I noticed several cards on the blogs that I blurf had leaning cakes too. I think it must have something to do with the cake stand and the wee neck. I will be extra careful when I use that stamp again. This striped paper is from a retired paper pack called Colors of Spring.

I need to get next month's calendar this week so I can get a jump start on April. One of the teachers, whose birthday is actually today, said I was the only person who acknowledged her birthday.

I am hoping to foster some good will and spirits to our school. There seems to be some "that's not my job" attitude. I sure hope with the budget crunch that we are going through that my spirit and attitude and work ethic shines through.

One of our paraprofessionals "teacher's aides" has been out for about a month with her mother in ICU. On Friday, her mother went home to be with the Lord, so this card if for her.

I really like this paper, it is called Veranda. It is very sweet and delicate looking. I think it makes great cards, but it doesn't lend itself to all types of photos for a layout.

I am going to curl up with a book for a half hour, then I have to go pick up my son at work. It is a somewhat cold, dreary, rainy day. If I can get my husband to do it I may just take a nap.

Thanks for tuning in.


  1. Both beautiful cards Leslie!

  2. Leslie,
    I started sending random birthday cards about two years ago and it has brought me more joy than I ever imagined! You're on the right track - be that one person who reaches out.

    As for the sympathy card - it is absolutely beautiful. I thought I didn't need that Veranda stamp set - but it is so very pretty. I think you've convinced me . . .


  3. Very nice cards. I especially like the bright colors of your birthday cake card.

  4. Your cards are so fabulous Leslie. I think it's great that you are taking the time to make each one a birthday card.

  5. Simply beautiful!
    You know you are such a wonderful person, I need to get back to being more considerate like you. I miss remembering evryones birthday and special occasions. I do stay up on sympathy cards and usually holidays.
    Good will and so much more when you take the time to make a card for someone.
    Many blessings sweetie!
    Take care of yourself I always worry about all that you do and getting burned out.

  6. My cake stamp leans too, doll....I have to fudge with it whenever I use it.
    Your sympathy card is just beautiful.
    Can't wait to see you again!

  7. Kudos to you, Leslie. Just knowing someone cares so much to make and send a card makes a huge difference in one's life! Beautiful cards!
