in terms of the handmade card for today - the inspiration wheel landed on birthday and i was jazzed to create another card that will soon join the others in the birthday category of my online shop. i've been mentioning that i'll be adding a bunch of cards to the shop over the next few weeks and i plan to add a good amount from the most recent days over the next few days. i'm trying to tackle a few at a time and batch upload them! so thanks for your patience!
