Frugal Friday ~ Hand-made Birthday Card

Happy Friday, all!

Today I want to share with you the beautiful card Shauna made for her teacher's birthday this week. Granted, this is not the prettiest card, and is not embellished with ribbons or stickers, the handwriting isn't even neat - it's just cardstock and pencil, but the heartfelt note makes up for what it lacks. Shauna created this all by herself (after bedtime), the night before her teacher's birthday - which somewhat explains the lack of embellishments. When she showed me what she had created, I almost cried. I tried to get a good picture, but my OLD camera wouldn't cooperate! :)

The front side of the card reads "I hope your birthday is filled with lots of fun"
The inside reads "and I hope your heart can BEAR my love."

Of course I was shocked and asked her if she came up with that quote all by herself - of course, mom. :) And then she said "oh, I forgot to draw the bears," so she then proceeded to draw the two bears hugging each other. I'm confident that her teacher appreciated this card more than a $3.95 Hallmark card.

Hi Rhonda!!!
So nice to "meet" you. I was so happy to see a new person that reads my Mercy Bee blog. : }
I think it's so great how God puts certain people together; I am frugal, too, I hate abortion, too! Chiefly, I LOVE JESUS, TOO!!!
I'm adding you to my Happy Reading blog list, and wanna visit you in the days to come.
Are you a Texan, too? We live up in NE corner of Texas.
Joyful Because of Jesus,
Melissa
