July Cards



An anniversary card for my sister Terry and her husband Nelson.  Terry loves sunflowers.

"These anniversary wishes
Comes with love today,
To wish you all the very best
On this your special day."

A birthday card for my former colleague Lorrie, who books for catering events. 

"It's that special day again,
How quickly does time fly.
But couldn't let your birthday pass,
Without a cheerful "Hi",
So hope your day just sparkles
With happiness all day through
For you deserve a brilliant day,
That's especially made for you!"

My brother-in-law Scott was 51 this month.  He and his family have 4 celebrations this month.   

"To help you celebrate,
This card is sent to say,
May good luck and good fortune,
Always with you stay.
May you find much joy and happiness,
In everything you do,
And in this card is all our love,
Sent especially for you!""

Scott sent me a nice thank you for the handmade card!

 This birthday card is for my nephew Jake who is 22 this July.

"I hope this little card,
Brightens up your day,
I'm popping it in the post box
To send it on its way.
Within it are good wishes
For a day that's just for you,
As you deserve the very best
In life to come to you!"

My sister Amy was 51 this month.  She is my youngest sister.

"It means so much throughout the year
to have a sister just like you,
You're thoughtful, warm and caring
and understanding too.
That's why this birthday message comes with thanks and special love,
To wish you all the happiness
you're so deserving of."

 I spent the day with my young colleague Mallory, the dietitian at Camp Kno Koma, West Virginia's camp for children with diabetes.  Mallory, who first attended as a camper, spends the week plus with the 125 children and other medical staff feeding and counseling the children.  All of her work is volunteer.  This card was a thank you allowing me to witness the good work that they do.  The picture is of Mallory at camp.

"You really have a heart of gold,
It's one that can't be bought or sold." 

My aunt Bernice is 96 this month.  She is still sharp as a wit!  I called her the morning of her special day.  She still lives at home-by herself!

"N is for nice
I is for irresistible
N is for naughty
E is for everyone's friend
T is for terrific
Y is for you.

S is for super
I is for icon
X is for extra special."

 Amy and Scott (in addition to birthdays) celebrated 29 years of marriage this month.

"It's a day that's stuck in my memory.
It's the day you said, "I Do".
It's the day you shared together
A day that was made for two.
The years they've come.
The years they've gone,
But one thing that has stayed true,
is the love you've had for each other.
Since the day you said, "I Do".

This card is for my water aerobics friend, Betty, who has not been able to attend due to an angle injury out of class.  Betty is also in her 90s and is so much fun to be around.  She has very white hair and dresses like she's going to church when she comes to class.  I miss her.The background paper has flamingos-we do flamingo leg movements in class.

"I hope you'll soon be on the mend
Broken bones are a pain to bear
So I thought this little card I'd send
Just to show you I do care."
