I'm a Little Behind!

 Haha! How prophetic (or pathetic) are those words? Not much time to craft these days. Today, out of necessity, I desperately needed a belated birthday card for a dear friend. Here's what I came up with.

For the image I used Forest Friends #3 from Inky Antics colored with Spectrum Noir markers and die cut with Stitched Circles from MFT. The background was done with Mowed Lawn and Salty Ocean Distress Ink. The two background papers were from my stash.  The lighter brown color was die cut with MFT Stitched Squares. The sentiment was computer-generated. Everything on a dark brown card stock base. The inside of the card reads: "No "butts" about it... you're great! (from Inky Antics)  Happy Birthday  Sorry I'm late, hope it was GREAT! "(retired Gina K set). 
I am entering these challenges:
So, we are still going to and from Cincinnati to help with Tom's Dad. We'll be returning sometime this week. He's getting better physically but he still needs someone with him most of the time. We are getting closer to starting the new house. We hope that the first part of this next week, the surveyor will be stacking out the house and if the weather gets better we can get started. It's been crazy busy. Last Wednesday I spent the day picking up bricks from existing sidewalks. We don't want the brick in the dirt when the foundation is dug. Lots more to do there. Hope you are all well. Please pray for peace in our world. Peace and all good thing to you.

Hello, Donna! Thank you for all of sweet comments you left on my blog this past week. You have a lot going on - I don't know where you get your energy, but you certainly need it to keep up with everything you are doing! Nice to see a card from you, and it's so cute and fun! That background paper is amazing too! I hope Tom's father gets well soon and I hope everything will go great with your new house, so exciting! Sending peaceful wishes to you as well, Donna. I continue to pray for peace in the world.

Oh my, that is the most fun belated birthday card. Love the picture, sentiment, and inside words. I'm sure your friend will love it. You are a busy lady. I hope you are taking a little time for yourself to regenerate and have some fun.

This card is so cute and perfect for a belated birthday!!! I've been working in my craft/sewing room. I painted one of the closets put in shelving and my loose paper and paper pads all colorized and by holiday or theme. I am wworking on the built in desk and shelving are now. Little by little!
I hope you all have safe travels.
