I was going to put a sentiment on the front, but decided instead to use some of my large buttons.
Inside I'm going to use an older sentiment from All that Scraps (that goes with a snail most of the time)
It reads, "Sorry I'm late..... did I miss cake?!"
Yep, another late birthday card from me!!
My papers are from the My Mind's Eye pad named Gertie.
I thank you for coming by today! I really appreciate it!~ back tomorrow, I hope!
Have a wonderful day!

We have had some warmer weather-in the 50s! Last evening my husband was out trying to chip away with a shovel at the snow mound in our front yard in HIS SHORTS! Too funny!
I think this card is a little bit of spring, too! The soft yellow just makes me happy! I think some of the best presents are when Dave comes home with one of those bouquets of mini carnations from the grocery store! That's what this reminds me of and next time I think I'll put them in a mason jar!
The stamp is from I Brake for Stamps and is called Flower in a Jar.
I did make the card 4" x 6" to accommodate the image and still have space for the embossed border on the card.

Also present are those wonderful 'tropical colors' that I told Nancy Parker would be appearing in cards. They are helped along by the awesome MME Mable papers!
I hope you have this paper because then you can get a better idea of the colors! They photographed so differently! The paper is SU Apricot Appeal, not orange! It is sponged with pumpkin to give it depth.

My My Mind's Eye Mabel paper is close by on my table so I turned to it for a pattern to use. I kind of like the finished card and hope you do too!
(I'll try to do better at keeping track of copics for you!)
And this is the simple inside of the wedding card I posted yesterday.
Wishing you a great Monday!

The bride is a coworker of Dave's so we don't know the couple extremely well. The occasion called for a nice card and a gift of $! Sooo, I spent Saturday morning making this card for them. I have had this stamp (Wedding Couple)for awhile since my friend Michele introduced me to Lili of the Valley stamps last fall. My nephew is getting married in June so I ordered the stamp in case I wanted it for their card. So happy I got to use it sooner!
Have a great one! Cheryl

I used copics on the image, as I'm sure you know. The colors are as follows:
YGo1, YG01, YG25
Y21, 31, 35 and 38
YR16, E19 and E08
(A sweet follower, Nancy Parker, asked if I would be influenced by the colors I saw in the Caribbean for awhile. Nancy, I think so!!)
thanks for coming by today! Have a great day! See you soon!
