In Typical Auntie Fashion…

I’m the worst! I am forever known as the Aunt who is always late sending cards to her nieces and nephews.  It’s not something I’m proud of.  I always vow that next time I’ll do better…sometimes I do but most times not so much.

My nieces birthday was August 13th.  Not only was I a week late in making the card, but then I left it downstairs in my craft dungeon for a full week after it was made before I realized (yesterday) what I’d done.  My sister and her family live 2-1/2 hours away from me but my niece is coming here to my town to go to school this fall.  She’s on route as I type this so I guess I will just give it to her in person, lol.  *hangs head in shame*.

For this card I went searching on google images for the perfect image befitting of a belated card … a snail.  Isn’t it the cutest, lol.  This one was already colored which was a bonus!

I used an embossing folder to add a little depth to the card. I wrapped some twine around the card a few times, added an eyelet to the sentiment to thread the twine through and tied it in a bow.

 

 

 

 

Here is a look at the inside…

That’s it for this card.  Now I just have to make sure I remember to deliver it, lol.   Enjoy your Sunday.

Gorgeous Sharon, I adore the cute little snail. Great design. They do say rather late than never.
