I'm Late !

     It's not often that I forget a birthday or forget to mail birthday cards I've already made, but it does happen and it annoys me when it does.  :-D   Best I can say is that I try to be prepared by having a belated card my stash which I can grab and send as soon as I realize I've missed a birthday.  Best I can do when I forget to mail a card already made it to put it in the mail that day!

     I used one of my QKR Stampede DT cards as an opportunity to add a belated card to my stash.  Today starts a new weekly challenge at QKR and our theme is always "Anything Goes."  The image I used for this card is called "Jogging 24211."

     I used my ProMarkers to color the image, then cut it with an embossed, Spellbinders' die.  I chose a black card base, wrapped silver ribbon around the front, added a polka dot, bowtie, bow, and adhered the printed sentiment.  Clean, simple, and masculine.  I love doing masculine cards - they are simpler than frilly and feminine projects, are usually easy to mail being flat, and simple cards are usually take less time to make.  Besides, I have more males in my family than females.  :-D
