I did it again!

I seem to have racked up a reputation for my cards to always arrive on the day. Now, I can tell you that's not always the case, but I do give it some thought as to when I post cards, as certain days seem to be more favourable to get there quicker than others. Having lived abroad for almost 10 years now, I'm starting to know how long things will take to get to their destination.

For this particular card and present, which were for Lauren, Rebecca's best friend in Australia, who turned (the day's almost finished in Oz) 11 today, I left it really late. I intended to post it on Tuesday, but that didn't happen as I had to pick-up Renee early from school with a fever. Wednesday she was home all day as well, which meant I didn't get a chance either. So, Thursday I finally posted them. I tend to send the card separately, as that normally gets there quicker.

This morning I spoke to Beth, Lauren's mum, and guess what... they both turned up on the day. I did it again. Unfortunately Lauren won't be able to open it until Friday as she left on her school camp yesterday. Congratulations, Lauren. Hopefully you've had a nice day with all your school friends.

Supplies: Bazzill Basics Cardstock | Making Memories Patterned Paper, transparency and brad | Doodlebug Designs paper frill | ribbon from local garden centre | Martha Stewart border punch dots | Papertrey Ink clear stamp Birthday Basics | Staz'On ink jet black | Spellbinder Nestabilities circles.

Right now I need to get onto another card, otherwise that one won't be on time either.

Beautiful Lisette! This card positively shouts SPRING! I'm sure it will be well loved by Lauren!

That's so pretty! I scrapbook, but don't make cards...and am always so impressed with people's card-making creativity. :-)
