Sorry...I Forgot!

Ooops...I forgot my blog's birthday! Well...the fact that my 'blogoversary countdown' widget seems to have decided to change the date it counts down to didn't help...I'd checked it a few weeks ago thinking 'it must be my blog's birthday soon' to find out that it wasn't until nearly the end of the month...but I checked back to my first ever blog post last weekend to discover that my blog had it's 6th birthday on September 3rd...and not today! So...I've made this card for my blog...I'm so sorry I missed your birthday!


The image is 'Sorry I forgot' by Rachelle Anne Miller for Crafter's Companion...the matching sentiment is one of the ones that came with the stamp. The papers are from the 'Indie Chic' pad by My Mind's Eye...I distressed the edges then added some faux stitching using my CutterBe Bug and a black gel pen. The pearls are from Hobbycraft and the seam binding ribbon is from the Ribbon Girls.

Challenges for this card:

Despite the extra time to prepare...I still didn't manage to get any blogoversary candy organinsed...so I'm going to save it and have a joint celebration when I post my 2000th post...coming up very soon!
