Paula's Birthday


My friend Paula's birthday is tomorrow, and this card will be out in the mail same day. My excuse?? I ran out of the adhesive that I like!! Now, I know I bought a refill when I got the dispenser, but could I find it? No!! And, with the -17 temps I'm not making a special trip to Hobby Lobby on Saturday (30 min. away...plus snowy roads) to pick one up. Made a trip in today and, uh...stopped at Target while in town. Bad, bad, bad, because I spent lots of money at the Dollar Spot!! Those dollars sure can add up quick!! But, I purchased several cute storage and paper goodies that I'll share another day (when I don't have a card made to show ya'll!).


I've had Lily the Fairy colored in for a week or more, but never got a card made in time for the contest at Pink Cat Studio. Since I thought I was mailing this Saturday, I went with a fast design. It took longest to emboss and cut out the flowers using a Cuttlebug die. Red Stickles were used on the headband, and they shrunk quite a bit during the drying process.


Happy crafting!

What a cutie. I like the sparkly headband.

I wouldn't worry about a day late. I would rather have a handmade card late than a store bought card on time.

This card is adorable! I am sur eyou friend will be happy to get it even if it is after her Birthday. My hubby always tells me "You are great at making cards, but terrible at sending them out!". Sad, but true.

I really like the sentiment - I don't know if it's the small size or the font, but it's super cute.
