Belated Birthday Greetings

I made this belated birthday card using a free digi image from Marlene of Disguised as a Grownup. Marlene has a wicked sense of humor, and you can find so many hilarious images and sentiments when you follow her blog. I needed a few belated birthday images in my stash, so I paper pieced this image with Wild Asparagus dp and matted everything with black. She's colored with Copics and the sentiment was computer generated. The inside reads "this is the message that should have been sent before your birthday came and went!" (thanks to Mary Anne for the inside sentiment). I think I'm going to make several of these to keep on hand, as I forget birthdays now more than ever!
Enjoy your day everyone and thanks for stopping by!

HILARIOUS! {I AM her!} I love this, my dear! YOUR expert color skills surely brought this one home in an even BIGGER way than the epiphany she is having - I love IT!

I just love when Marlene has a new digi up! She has a great sense of humor, that keeps me cracking up. It's great what you did with this old lady.

Hi Carol, My sister's birthday is the 22nd and I'm going to forget it so I can send her this card. LOL! I love your coloring-the darker nose & the shadow detail around her. And I love the pointy elbows on the digi! So funny! Thanks for sharing!

LOL... Love this Miss Carol! Fabulous sentiment on the front and inside also! Terrific coloring and paper piecing! I think I might need to make up a few of these myself.. Seems that my memory isn't quite what it used to be.. lol 8-)

Hugs!

Benzi said...

Oh no, I forget them, too. Or, just never get around to mailing out a card which means I have a million stashed away. Love that paper pieced dress. :-)

This is a really cute card. I need to make a whole BOX of belated cards. I never seem to get any out on time anymore. LOL. I liked the paper piecing that you did here.
