Wish I Could Backspace

Good morning!

How are you today? Did you enjoy the long weekend? It got super hot here in Pittsburgh over the weekend and yesterday, we just had no energy. I had big plans for my extra day off and didn't make much of it! But being lazy can be good, too.

Today I have a card to share that I made for my sister-in-law. I love my SIL dearly, and I totally forgot her birthday. Its awful, and I'm pretty disappointed in myself. Clearly the birthday calendar idea doesn't work so well for me!

I used this week's Play Date Cafe colors (PDCC83) for my card.

I couldn't help but to use the Just My Type set from MFT. I really do love it! This time I used the 'I Wish I Could Backspace' sentiment for my belated birthday card.

The background was stamped with the polka dot pattern from Off Beat Backgrounds. I added a few strips of black cardstock to help ground my image.

Fun stuff! I hope you have a great day! We are finally having our back patio poured today (we've been waiting since late November!) - so exciting!

  1. How's the patio?? After cleaning and staining our deck over the past two days, I dreaming of a poured patio.

    Love your card. That sentiment is fantastic!
