I will be the first to tell you that I do not like giving or receiving greeting cards. I always tell my husband do not get me a card for Valentines, Anniversary, etc. Greeting cards in most homes will be read once or twice then eventually thrown in the trash. It is such a waste of money especially with some cards costing as much as five dollars each. This past Christmas I even gave home made note cards to my family to use. Well, a week ago was my 46th birthday and of course I received some cards (please don't think that I am not appreciative of the cards...because I am). After a few days my problem arises. What do I do with the cards? I am not one of those folks that saves everything in a box. What I came up with is something many other people are already doing. I decided to keep a few of the special cards and make an art journal page out of it. Now it will be in my journal forever.
