A Little Late

Finally I got to play in my planet!

But before that, let me just share with you a little story. 

My Mommy is here visiting, and she has been doing a lot of cleaning for us (thank you much, Mommy!).  She likes to hang in my planet - using the computer and what not.  A couple of days ago, she was grazing through my craft desk, pointed at my Big Shot and asked how it worked.  So I showed her the basics.  I embossed some cardstock with my A2 folders... and she said "wow!" upon seeing the outcome.  I even let her emboss herself.  She thought it was pretty cool.  After that, I showed her how to cut with Spellbinders dies, and layered the cut pieces.  She was amazed.  End of story.  I just had to share because I found her reactions quite amusing.

Anyway, I have been way behind on my card making and have even skipped giving cards to some important people during their special days.  I still feel bad, because I have mentioned countless times since I started blogging about making cards for all family, relatives and friends throughout the year as a New Year's resolution.  And every year, I fail.  And I did again this year.

So DH's niece and goddaugther, who is dear to us, had her birthday last week.  And of course, I wasn't able to make a card for her.  But I made sure I made one to extend her celebration in some way.

The image was colored with Copics, and the embossed background was sprayed with Tattered Angels and Smooch Spritz.
