Bumble Bee, eating Humble Pie

After making my Birthday Planner (click here for link to the post) last month, to ensure that I wouldn't miss any birthdays, guess what happened!


It was my lovely teamie Sarah's birthday earlier this week, and I even remembered the date a couple of weeks ago, but at that time I thought it was too early to send a card.  And then I promptly forgot again.

Double d'oh!

Anyway, better late than never.  So, I made a new card, with a belated birthday wish sentiment as an apology!  I kept the card kind of simple, as I think she prefers them this way, but I couldn't resist adding some pearls and glitter.  I also used a cute Barry bear image, as I know she likes him too.

Card Recipe:
I've been inspired by:
  • Sketch N Stash - Sketch (old stash = daisy ribbon I've had for years, and totally neglected)
  • Stamping Sensations - Wings, Fantasy and Fiction (wings, plus you don't get much more fictional than a teddy bear in a bumble bee costume!)
Happy crafting

It's a fabulous card Annette... Barry Bee looks like he's had his fill of pollen and is having a little rest before he takes off again!

Big hugs

I am always running late with birthday cards (see my latest post for evidence!) - they go on my planner but sometimes I get busy and forget about them too!
I'm sure the loveliness of the card more than made up for it being late - such a cute cheerful design :-)
Big hugs, Kat x
