Belated Wishes


I made a boo boo at the beginning of the month and didn't realize a Birthday was imminent until I turned over the calendar and with two days to send a card overseas being impossible I put together this little belated number to demonstrate what an " ass " I felt!!
Despite the lateness she loved it so I think I am forgiven!!


The image was a prize from Whimsy stamps from a couple of years ago that I found in my digi folder. Coloured with Promarkers to match the Kitsch paper and coordinating bow from Craftwork Cards. I pierced holes and used my letraset fineliner for faux stitching and the sentiment is from a Paper Smooches set.

 Luckily there a few challenges that suit too as the colourway rather lends itself to the Union Flag.

Your logic for choosing this cute image, made me smile! This one is just too cute, and easily understand that your recipient instantly forgave the delay. It's certainly worth waiting for...as it is just a delightful image, and so prettily done. I enjoyed JNettles as Barnaby much more than his replacement, although I like Neil in other things. Got copies of Bergerac from a UK source, as I couldn't find in the USA. The copies are not the greatest, but it was such fun seeing JN as a younger actor. He's so understated in his acting, you just have to love watching him. I hope he's doing other things now that he's out of MM, but I do miss him and the crew. Have a great week..TFS & Hugs
