Ice Cream

Today's card features a really summery image, with summery colours for a special reason.  I made a 'Winter Birthday' card last December for a lady whose birthday I believed to be late December (well with a name like "Mary" it seemed plausible!).  But she looked a bit befuddled when I handed her the card, because it turns out I got the date wrong, and her birthday is actually in August. Whether I pretended I was late for her last birthday, or early for the next one, either way my Wryn "Winter Birthday" card was somewhat inappropriate!

So today, I'm trying to redeem myself with a summery themed card.

I'm using a sweet new image that I bought from Sir Stampalot, and I must say that their customer service was amazing.  I ordered this image on Monday, and it was sitting on my doormat when I got home on Tuesday night!  So I excitedly inked her up that night, and made this card. And I must say, I kinda like her!

I made a custom sentiment to ensure the recipient realised that I'd got the date right this time, and finished her off with summery pink colours.

Netty, this card is adorable!For a Winter OR Summer Birthday! Usually when people forget when a Birthday is, they don't send a card. And this lady will probably get TWO! So although you forgot the date, the sentiment of the card was kindness and I'm sure that she appreciate that. Thank you for sharing your card with us for the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge. ~Michelle

It's always nice to get a handmade card...even at the wrong time! I'm sure Mary will be delighted with this beautiful card as it is just so pretty and Summery :-)

Big hugs, Kat xx
