I keep missing your Birthday

 My card for today is kind-a. . joke. . on the fact you never get the tail in the correct spot. I decided on a theme of ""I keep missing your Birthday"" Sorry!.  I seem to be doing that a lot lately. . .missing birthdays. I used two of the dies from the Cottage Cutz Birthday Collection. The Pin the Tail Donkey and the hat off the Birthday Peeker Bear die. I cut several tails and stuck them all over, including the inside.

 This is a work in progress, I took the Cottage Cutz Bowl die and used it to create a strainer. I used a 1/8" hole punch to create the holes in the bowl. I used the vegetables off the Cottage Cutz Cook Pot & Veggies die to fill the strainer. I decided on deep purple for the bowl because it seemed to show the wide color range of the veggies off. . . than all those colors popped on a cream table cloth (Martha Stewart edger punch) The Cottage Cutz Pot & Veggies die has a ton of really good veggies , you can build them up and overlay with a good color mix. I am not sure what I am going to do with it yet. . but will let you know!.
That's it for today. . Thanks Barry

Barry, your cleverness never ceases to amaze me! I love the missing your birthday idea and how you worked that into a card, and your colander with veggies and that tablecloth are just fabulous. Me thinks my little eye spies some Copic coloring, as well. LOL! You are SO hooked!!!!!
