FWF-Birthday card

I made this card for my aunt. I confused her birthday with my other aunt (her sister) and sent her a card two months early, but she never let on and thanked me so generously for making her a card. It wasn't til I got closer to her real birthday (looking ahead to see who I needed to make cards for) that I realized my mistake. So on her real birthday, I decided that I would send this card to let her know that I realized my mistake.

I love it that Unity Stamp Co. sends the goofed up stamps in their kit anyway. They include a note about the mistake and explain that just because there is a mistake doesn't mean that we can't still use it in a creative way! Isn't that awesome! I love it, cause in the world of creating (including God and all of his creation) THERE ARE NO MISTAKES!!!!

  13. You are so clever! I love this card - great way to use the stamp sentiment with the spelling booboo. Your aunt probably enjoyed a laugh, too - and how fun for her to get two cards from such a great artist! :)
