On Time Birthday Card

I crafted a card for my niece...FINALLY, a birthday card that might make it ON TIME this year.

I'm still getting used to 2015...that's my story and I'm sticking to it guys... ;)

When I lay these colors down...all I saw was Japanese and the 70s/80s.

It had me missing my Grandma...I'm actually struggling to recall her faint accent now...I remember she had a really cute one. ;).

I reached for my Sister Stamps that my sister sent me from Hawaii
 (yes, my literal sister sends me sister stamps...I just got that!!!).

 This cutie patootie, (since my niece is a cutie patootie) seemed to be handing over a gift.

I was pretty satisfied with the colors already achieved by the strips so I stopped while ahead and left the image alone.

Besides, she might want to color her!

(That's this cardmaker's way of saying she's not confident in her coloring skills,  HA!)

Ok, enough chatterboxing so that I can actually get this in the mail and meet a birthday on time.

Don't hold your breath; I still have to buy the gift card.

Speaking of gift cards, one of the cards I purchased over Christmas wasn't activated....keep those receipts guys.

Human error is going to happen with humans.

It just happens.

blessings friends~
