Belated Birthday cards...you never have enough!

Couldn't imagine that I'd forgotten a good friends' Birthday but there it was..I saw this cute sentiment a while back on a card with a tractor and just laughed at the humor!  Since it's for a Girlfriend, I knew that Cheryl Alger had this Farmer Girl image that I adored-Perfect!  This ought to give my City Slicker friend a chuckle! I pulled out my rusty red textured cardstock,added a touch of raffia, some wheat and cow paper and of course you gotta have red gingham, added my fav embellies Buttons (this time with coiled wire through them) and finished the inside on this 6x6 card as you see here.  
I'd like to enter this in the following challenges:
 Willow Sketchie Challenge, Die Cuts 
Penny's Paper-Crafty -Birthdays
Ladybut Crafts Ink #59-Birthdays
Think I'd better stock up on some more of these type cards to have on hand! Thanks for stopping by!  ~Carolyn

    1. I still laugh when I see it-thanks Mel! Didn't know if it was "kosher" to use something like that when you see it elsewhere but it was too perfect!
