It's your day {birthday card post}

Traveling the last month left me a bit behind on my craft projects. Taking on the 30 for 30 challenge, trying to get caught up at work, and making an attempt at a social life has left me tapped in the creativity department. I tried numerous times on Sunday to create the MANY thank you cards I need to send to India - I got one started, but the rest are still pieces of paper staring back at me. Throw in 3 birthdays I need to make cards for this week and I'm feeling like I've lost my mojo. Today, I told myself I would tackle two of them (it's always easier to make cards for girls than guys). Getting those creative juices flowing at 9pm must have been the trick, I think they turned out swell.
