Are We On?

I met R. when our kids went to the same preschool. When the little ones went on to different schools to attend kindergarten, we decided to meet at my home every Friday so that the kids still get to play together. We kept pretty much to that schedule until the holiday season when we were both too busy. They stopped coming for a while and then one day R called. We decided that we could meet on the friday 2 weeks after.

When friday came, she did not show. Apparently I had written down the play date on my calendar and Little Miss Scatterbrain didn't. She had completely forgotten about coming over. After whining about how forgetful she is, she told me that I should have sent her an email reminder on the Wed before. A simple "Are We On?" note would work. We laughed and managed to reschedule our get-together for the week after.

Then Summer came and Summer went and our kids went on to 1st Grade. With no more 4-day school for us, it was too challenging to meet up regularly. We have not had a play date since last September and then 2 weeks ago R called. We talked then realized that the kids can  have a play date this friday as it was a Teacher's Work Day and there are no classes. So, just in case she forgets again, I made R this card. I am going to put it in the mail on Tuesday so she will receive it on Wed. I wish I could be there when she tears open the envelope to see her chuckle. 

Cartridges used are Don Juan and Forever Young. The black layers are embossed with Cuttlebug's Swiss Dots folder while the card front was embossed with Sizzix's Three Dots Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.


  1. This is adorable. Love that dress-I want a dress like that. lol.

  2. You're funny, Gale. :) Did you check out the bling on that dress? :D Btw, I never cared much for the Forever Young cartridge but having made this card, I'm now stalking ebay for it. :P
