It Depends on the Friend

I always laughed at the thought of using PTI's Friendship Jar and Additions to create a "Well Preserved" birthday card. Kinda funny

Some people wouldn't care for this reminder. Others would take it in stride. Just depends on how well you now your friends. Or your family.  I'd advise against giving it to somebody who has had a face lift, because then it becomes more of a passive aggressive jab. Unless you mean it that way. If that is the case, slap a stamp on it and smile demonically when you pop it in the mail.

  1. haha! love the humor! Have you seen the book Get Real Greetings? It has a whole bunch of appropriately innapproprite cad ideas. You would love it!

  2. I love it!!! The two decorated jars, the sentiment, fun flowers with buttons...all of it!

  3. Hahah, love it! :) Got a good chuckle this morning!

  4. I love the card. It would be perfect for my mom who will be 104 on Thanksgiving Day and looks about 70 - no joke!

  5. This is so fun - what a great idea! You're right about giving it to the right person though. Your last several posts were very fun too. Love your little ones' pics. My son never did get the trike riding down, but was great w/a bicycle - go figure.

  6. You make me smile! Cute card - and I hope you're doing well!
