Belated Birthday Card

I love making homemade cards (duh).  I love clever quotes, cute designs, and funky patterns.  Unfortunately I often forget the actual day of some people's birthdays......but in my defense I remember the month.  Anywho, here is the first of three cards I've created for 3 great friends.

You know that friend that always tells you the truth, even if you really don't want to hear it.  The friend who knows WAY TOO much about you-in fact because she knows so much you can never not be friends...yeah she's my bestie and she  lives in Toronto (Ontario).  We went through college together, lived together (briefly), she's over all wonderful and I forgot her birthday.  So here's my belated birthday card for Rachel.

First I started by stamping the entire background
in a light yellow to create a tone on tone pattern.

Then I inked the edges and glued on
this cute retro housewife image!

Then I cut out 2 word bubbles and inked them to match.

It took me a while to figure out exactly what
I wanted to say...I mean I knew what I wanted to
say just not how to say it.
"I don't want to gossip but....I think you
should think about getting some new friends......"

"...because this one forgot your birthday!"

Clever right?  It's a little sassy, and I know that I can only use this kind of language on a card to this type of friend...y'know what I mean?  Anywho, I think it's cute and I hope she does too!  More cards to come-stay tuned :)
