Another card

Presley's first birthday is coming up real soon and they are having her birthday party for her on Sunday. The child has more clothes and toys than she needs so rather than buy her anything I've decided I'll open a savings account for her.

So I won't show up empty handed I decided to make her a birthday card. Not that she will really care or know the difference but you know. The theme for her birthday is a tea party. I had some cut and print files that matched that theme.

Here is the front of the card


And I also cut the teacups for the inside. Now I just need to write something on the other side

That's a wonderful gesture! My parents did the same for our kids & by the time they were adults they both had some nice savings. Irene made a down payment on a house & Erik got his Master's degree in political science.

I love the card and your gift!

What a talented gran Presley has. I'mm sure her mum will save the card for when she can appreciate it!

Pam said...

Loving your cards. I have a FB friend that does this also and I loved the special Christmas card she sent to me. So cool to get those type of cards, they mean so much.

Marg said...

That is such a great gift and also a really nice card. Great idea on both. Have a good day Ann.

I like your idea of a savings account. My in-laws did that for my kids and the money was nice when they went to college. They would send a new pair of pajamas for the kids too...which was nice. Kids always need pajamas.

Oh that is pretty and fun. (I have the same problem with my 18 month old granddaughter - she has all the material things she needs to I sent her a musical card and for a day or two it was her favorite thing!)

That card is so cute. A savings account is awesome!

Terra said...

The savings account is a great idea and you can contribute to it in years to come on birthdays, etc. The girl on your card is a cutie.

Love your card, another idea is an uncirculated set of coins for her birth year.

It is very cute, and the savings account is a good idea. Something she WON'T grow out of, when all her toys become boring.

What a pretty card and opening a savings account is an excellent gift.

Have a fabulous day off, Ann. Big hug to you and lots of scritches to Gibbs. ♥

It's supposed to be terrible weather tomorrow so not sure if I'll go

Ann said...

My inlaws did the same thing for my kids

Ann said...

thank you

Ann said...

Thanks. The gift just makes more sense to me

Ann said...

Aww, thanks

Ann said...

I have a highschool friend who always sends handmade cards at Christmas. I keep saying I'm going to make hers the next year and as of yet I haven't gotten around to doing it

Ann said...

thanks

Ann said...

My in-laws did the same thing.

Ann said...

I don't remember my kids having as much when they were that little but it sure makes it hard to know what to give for a gift

Ann said...

I figure it's much more useful than something that will just end up in a pile of other things.

Ann said...

exactly

Ann said...

that is a good idea as well

Ann said...

Absolutely. She may not appreciate it now but in 18years she will

Ann said...

thanks
