I am making this for my baby sis (Alexandra) whose b'day is March 13th! Thanks so much for the tutorial & clear directions/pics Deanne! GREAT idea! I made bookmarks for all of Noah's Team at Christmas but didn't have a "specially-made type of card" for those- just tucked them into his Team's Christmas Cards. Anyway- will try this and post a link as soon as I get it done. Could be a few days, LOL. ;O) ~Ali
