At work we get together for staff birthdays. Now this was fun when it was a small office... we'd get together every once and awhile to share some cake, or more recently, healthier options such as fruit. But since we've expanded and the staff has grown in size, it seems like we have a birthday every other week. Which is why some people prefer to not celebrate their special days. Well, that and the embarrassing ritual of the Off-Key-Singing.
One staff member and good friend always takes her holidays on her birthday. She also loves Donald Duck. So instead of a get together after she returned from vacation, we gave her flowers and a card (as usual, made my moi).
I hand drew this Donald, coloured in with pencil crayons, used Turpentine to smooth with a smudger, outlined in Sharpie and cut out. I mounted it on a card with foam squares to pop it out, found some matching ribbon, and hand-wrote the lettering copying the Walt Disney font I have loaded on my laptop.
Just a simple card, but I think she'll appreciate it (well, that and the Non-Off-Key-Singing).
