I do remember, just not always when I should!

Ever have those kind of days? I have a book of months (like a perpetual calendar) that I write down birthdays for my friends, family, and customers. However, I don't always pull it out on the first of the month! So, I either get the birthday cards out VERY early or VERY late. I do remember, just may slip pass by the actual date. In my hubby's family, it is a given that you won't get your card before or even on your day- kind of a joke!

So, todays card is in remembrance of all of the people that I know had birthdays, but that I actually have forgotten to send out a card to. Happy Birthday!!!

The card sketch is from Midnight Madness SC4. Again, it was one of those cards that I really struggled with the middle image. I finally settled on the elephant, and came up with the saying afterwards. Like it when things work out that way! This card has many layers, all using 3d foam dots to raise up. Buttons are just stacked and attached with glue dots. The paper is from a misc matte stack, but all glittery! Watercolors for the elephant in blue and red. Really starting to like this technique.

If you click onto the photo, you can get a larger, clearer image....

Thanks for REMEMBERING to stop by!
