Asher and I were at Walmart the other day picking up some necessary chocolate and stopped by the Funny Pets display of Hallmark cards. You can see we had some fun. :)
We came home with a few different ones (join the Hallmark Card Rewards Program to earn rewards for every 5 cards you purchase) because something about funny animals just makes you smile. *Be aware that a few of the options there aren't exactly kid-friendly, so be ready to intervene if your child is picking out a birthday card for their friends.
We all love getting real mail these days, but it's not always something we remember any more. If you'd like to be better about sending birthday cards to your family but aren't in the habit, here are 5 ways to make it a little easier.
1-Make a list of the birthdays you want to acknowledge with a card. If you don't know off the top of your head, just ask them, or check on Facebook.
2-Buy enough cards for the year. No feeling like you have to run to the store at the last minute.
3-Buy stamps and attach them to envelopes. No more using the out-of-stamps excuse, and it's even easier with Forever stamps now because they're always good. Have extra Christmas stamps? No worries, use 'em up!
4-Track down addresses. At least make sure your address list is up to date. Then you'll have it when you actually need it near their birthday.
5-Put it in your schedule! Pick a day, say the first Sunday of every month, and check your birthday list. Anyone have a birthdays between now and the first Sunday of the next month? Grab a card, write a message, put it one of your pre-stamped envelopes and send it on its way.
We noticed that there were no cards at the store with guinea pigs. If there were, it might look like this!
Whether you have pets or not, the Funny Pet Cards from Hallmark will make a regular birthday even better!
How would you caption this one from when we had goats?
