Vanesa's Birthday... well, in June. However in hearing about letter travel time to Uganda, I am planning ahead!
I decided to go with a pretty pink theme (my other recent letters have been blue and white).
It might be difficult to see, but the pink paper is embossed with flowers (Michaels had these on sale a few weeks back and I stocked up on a several colors!). I also picked up the gem sticker cross at Michaels (clearance for $0.50). The pink cut out flower was cut from my cricut (each letter I have sent one in the color of that theme!).
I know Compassion cannot translate books, however I found this very thin Clifford birthday book and am sending it along! Hopefully it will make it through!
It wouldn't be a birthday package without a birthday card! I did a quick flower stamp, colored it in, glued down, added a cute punched out border and done!
The "LOVE" was super fun to make. I wanted to send something extra special for Vanesa's birthday. A few weeks ago, Alan brought home fresh flowers ( ❤ ). After a few days, I snipped off a couple flowers and placed neatly in a book. Fast forward a couple weeks. I decided it was the perfect time and color to use in this letter! I used my cricut to cut L V E, made a small "nameplate" with Vanesa's information and my sponsor id and laminated it all!
I'm excited to get this in the mail! I'll also be sending a letter and a few cut out goodies to Samuel, our Correspondent Child. His birthday is also coming up quickly! If you have ideas, I'm all ears!
What do you send your Compassion kids on their birthdays?
