As usual, I was totally drawing a blank when trying to think up a belated birthday card. I was watching Mary at CardzTV (I love her work) and came across this card. It was perfect. So in my usual style, I scraplifted it. I made a couple of changes but lucked up while I was at AC Moore earlier today and came across the same print pattern that she used on her card. Everything eles I just used what I had. I found the dragon fly brad in my stash and it was the same color as on the paper so I used it. The little turtle is from WIMG and is cut at 2 1/2.

This card is for my dear friend, boss and co-worker who's birthday was last week. I have hardly seen her in the last couple of months because she has been working out of town. I actually saw her on her birthday but didn't have a card or gift for her and I felt horrible about it so I invited her to lunch. She had to wait for me for over 45 minutes before we could go to lunch and once we ordered our food at the little shop downstairs I paid for mine and I didn't realize she had paid for her own lunch until they brought it out to her. Talk about feeling horrible......not to mention embarrassed that I had asked her to lunch on her birthday and she had to pay for hers. I guess it could have been worse, she could have had to pay for both of ours! It's probably happened before but if you ask her she wouldn't admit it. She is the type of person who NEVER forgets anyones Birthday no matter where she is. I am certainly going to work on being a better friend this year!

Thank you Mary for your inspiration and your talent. I visit your blog regularly and I love your cards. I will be scraplifting more! :)
