Saturday, my husband and I had the pleasure of attending a very special baby shower for one of our oldest friends and his wife. Jason and Patrick have known each other since college and I’ve known Patrick as long as I’ve known Jason. Patrick was one of the two people to sign our marriage certificate when we Jason and I were married in 1999. Patrick finally settled down and got married about a year and a half ago, and he and his wife are expecting their first child in late January.
Now, my husband give me a hard time about this, but I hate *hate* buying cards from the store. I’d much rather take 15 minutes, some scrapbooking paper and use a little imagination to come up with something of my own.
The theme for their shower was ‘Feather Their Nest’ so, I made a card with two little birds, a nest and an egg. It was super easy! If you don’t think you can come up with something on your own, there are a million cards you can look at online to draw your own inspiration from. And, because I’m pulling from materials I already have, I save a ton of money!
So, the next time you need a card for a birthday, baby shower, etc… consider making your own! It’s fun, creative and makes a great keepsake!
