The joy of cards

Nicole and I were out-and-about yesterday running errands, when a little boy, maybe 4 years old, approached me at Trader Joe’s.  “I want to give you a card,” he said in a very soft voice.

“You want to give me a card?” I repeated back to him, and he nodded and handed me a plain, rust-colored envelope.  “You picked the right person to give a card today!”  I told him, and explained that I liked to make cards, too.  I gave him one of my business cards, because he clearly wasn’t interested in looking at all my pictures on my iPhone, LOL!

“You should open it at home,” he told me.  “I drawed a ninja on it.”  His mom told me he’d made two cards, and had given the other to the librarian earlier that morning.  We agreed that it was great fun to give things to people and went our separate ways.

​When I got home I opened up the card:

And there was his ninja.  It puts a smile on my face every time I see it on the board in my craft room reserved for cards given to me.  I marvel at the timing of this little boy, giving my a handmade card on the eve of the new Stampin’ Up! annual catalog.

So today is the perfect time to renew our resolve to reach out and touch others with our cards.  You don’t need to have the latest and greatest products or the absolutely perfect design or execution to affect someone, you just need to do it.

That said, look below for a couple of opportunities to get more products, both new and retired!
