Do you ever have one of those days where time flies too fast to get anything accomplished? Yesterday was like that for me. I needed a card and cupcakes to take to my uncle's house to celebrate his belated birthday. But, I couldn't seem to get rolling and everything I did took longer than it should have. This was by far, the fastest card I've ever put together and I'm afraid, it kind of reflects the lack of time spent on it! But, I was so excited to finally use the hedgehog images from July's Stamp of the Month called Happy Forever. Isn't he adorable!!
I'll spare you everything that went wrong with this card, beginning with the fact that it started out manly, but, got really girly!!! Fortunately, my uncle's a manly man that isn't worried about that kind of thing and especially when it's from me....I'm really proud of him (he's a retired marine) and feel lucky to have gotten to spend some time with him for his birthday.
Hope you are all having a great weekend!
