Always a Hare Late

I think I have mentioned it before, but I am perpetually late for sending cards for birthdays.  I actually remember one time I sent one early, completely forgot that I sent it, and then sent a late one because I am always late.  Funniest part was I sent the exact same card both times!  It just happen to be one of the few times I made duplicate cards.  

So in honor of always being a "hare" late in sending cards out, I chose to work with this adorable Roller Bunny and the great sentiment "Just a hare late..." from Hambo Stamps.  I used and old Sweet Stop Sketch Challenge #125 for my layout and kind of stumbled upon my color combo.  I have the Basics White Paper Pad by Basic Grey and the notebook, grid, lined paper in there speaks to my engineering side, so I decided that I would use that.  Then I just liked how the Kiwi Kiss popped against the Gray (Black) and White.  I paper pieced the airplane with the same lined paper and I added some white fluff to his tail cuz' a bunny has to have a fluffy tail!

Now if only I could not be a "hare" late in starting my Christmas cards!  I am always working on them around the middle of December barely getting them out before Christmas!  Here is to looking ahead and getting started without putting it off!  Thanks for checking out my kind of engineering!

So cute!! Racing to catch up is how I feel most of the time (and why I'm just now commenting)! Hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving.
