I can now post the card as my friend has received it.
I used Stampin Up Blush paper, DSP from who knows where, and a stamp for SU also. I think it is called Wanda's Wit and Wisdom. It says-just to show you how sorry I am for forgetting your birthday...I'll forget mine next year. I know you can't see it too well, but I used my Scor-Pal on the DSP to make a grid pattern on the paper. The camera just didn't pick it up well at all, but if you look real hard, you can see the grid marks. The 3 heart embellishments were put on with my new Crop-a-dile. And because I pinched it so tightly, I couldn't move them into their desired places, so if you got any helpful hints about using the Crop-a-dile, I'll take them.
Oh, and one other thing, but you have to keep this a secret :-)
I have now found the perfect place to take pictures of my cards. The bathroom. Yes, you read that right, the bathroom...right on the toilet. I couldn't find the right lighting to take a picture and wa la I got this idea. My bathroom has a sky light in it. The sky light is right above the toilet. So I made sure that the lid was down, as that is very important, because if you miss this step, you probably will have to start all over. Back to the story, (I always get off track), with the white lid down, and the card on the lid, and the sun shining all around (now I'm singing that tune) , I took the picture. Fantastic idea, don't you think?
Anyone else have their photography studio in their bathroom? Well you should think about it.
Back to the song I was singing. It is from when I was a girl scout, many years ago. But the song went-a boy and a girl in a little canoe and the ___________ all _____. I think the bold letters above, fills in the missing words, but now I'm not sure. Maybe I should send this off to "Don't Forget the Lyrics". I obviously would never win on that show.
Carol, I am sorry your card was late.
Hugs to you all~
