Don't Forget


This card was made for my Grab Bag Swap but I thought it has great use as a "gentle reminder". Placing a sparkly card like this in a prominent place could be a good visual without a nag factor. The other idea I thought of was to give it to a child to build anticipation for an outing or vacation. (Trip to the zoo maybe?)

The set is Jungle Fever from MFT. I usually use the WTG on safari but I thought this made a more neutral card. I can't say masculine since I used glittery background paper. (I don't know why glitter is not masculine, guys like shiny stuff too. Why else would they chrome their cars?)

The sketch is from this week's Inspirational Card Sketches and measures 4.25*4.25. I am actually really liking this note card size. I normally do larger square cards but this is cute.

This card fits several other challenges this week:
Paper Sundaes: Focus on animals - No people
Stamp with Fun - Animals
Paper Jewels - Sewing & Buttons

  1. What a fun card, and that's a great idea to stick a card like that in a spot to help you (or your loved ones (!) remember :-)
