No, this one isn't titled this way because I forgotten a birthday - but I can't easily forget it as the recipient, my nephew, celebrates the day after mine in March. LOL. Wouldn't this adorable image work so well for a 'sorry I forgot' card too, with this cute two-some from Elizabeth Dulemba? I had great fun colouring the elephant with my Promarkers, masking the image to give him a blue background with my airbrush. I do love colouring!!!! That and creating my cut-files - could do it all day if I could. All I need is to get paid to do it & I would 'have it licked' as they say! LOL. The tiny mouse is coloured in similar colours as his larger friend to make them a perfect pair & I cut my image having added a printable 'stitch'.
The layout I chose for my card is from Tuesday Morning Sketches and as you can see, is rather CAS (Clean & Simple) compared to a lot of my cards. Does you good to mix it up a bit though, doesn't it? LOL I chose clean, fresh Spring-like papers (how's that for optimism? LOL) & having made my vertical 'banner' cut file, again used the print & cut feature. I also used the Silhouette Studio software to create my sentiment.
|Isn't this big fella just too cute!|
