Birthday Party oops!

This card went together really fast because I already had the parts done.

My son was invited to a birthday pool party this afternoon. I bought a purple gift card from Wal-mart earlier this week and tucked it away in my purse. I also tucked away in the back of my mind an idea to use the flipper boy and pool girl from Hambo Stamps. Evidently I tucked everything away too good. I totally forgot about it until 30 minutes before he needed to leave for the party. I put this card together rather quickly with a background I embossed months ago and the Woodstock image (Stampabilities) I colored weeks ago. All I did today was punch the larger square from the embossed background and the smaller square from the dark purple background(Bazzill). I put the dark piece behind the embossed piece and the Woodstock behind that. He signed the card and was out the door.... Then I remembered the flipper boy and pool girl. (sigh) I'm going to make that card, but who knows when I'll have another pool party occasion?? Somebody else is going to get that card this summer, pool party or not!

What a great card, love those embossing templates. Know what you mean about putting things away too good, can't find them.

Ooooh, I love Woodstock and the card is so cute! I love that it's easy, too. :)
