'Tis the Season of Birthdays!

Stamps: Cherry Top Cupcake, Giga Birthday Circle, Interlocking Flower Background, All About You Birthday Sentiment. Cardstock: Real Red, Ballet Blue, GP110 white. Ink: Memento, Real Red, Craft white, Versamark, Copics. Accessories: chunky clear glitter, red gingham ribbon, Giga Circle Punch, white detail EP.

It's definitely birthday season in our household! Two daughters have birthdays within weeks of each other, and that doesn't even count all the friends and family that have birthdays this time of year.

I always promise myself that I'll stock up on birthday cards (and gifts) well before this time of year and I'm finally following through on that goal. Or at least attempting to follow through. DRS Designs is a big help with their birthday images and amazing selection of birthday sentiments. Be sure to check out the blog posting today for other birthday card ideas.

And to further my birthday preparedness goal, I'm organizing my card system so I actually remember to send out the cards in a timely manner. In an upcoming post, I'll show my new birthday book and card box systems. Wish me luck in getting organized enough to get those posts up and running!
