One of my teaching colleagues is and has always been the poor kid whose birthday occurred right before school began. We usually celebrate her birthday during inservice, a time when cake is always welcome. Instead of making the traditional "belated" card, I chose this sentiment from Verve's Brighter Days. It includes some lovely flowers and also has two arrows to stamp and die cut. I chose to use these cuties in place of the banners, topping them with a die cut button and a cotton bow.
