Warning : May Contain Slang (Conquering Paper Mountain #10)

I saw my sister-in-law at a family party during the weekend. She's been married to my brother for 12 years and to my horror, especially given my hobby, I realised that I had never sent her a birthday card. I blame my brother (of course) - he obviously has never told me when her birthday is. Anyway, I swore to make it up to her (wine was involved) and send her the backlog of 12 cards...and this is the first. 

I used an SVG cutting file from SVG cuts and a Prima 6x6 Almanac paper pad from my paper mountain.  I cut the 'sorry' out on the Silhouette and I stamped the cockerel's lower body with a Hero Arts stamp and Pearl Ex powder. I stitched a border, using my sewing machine. 

Inside , I typed and printed out the words: 'Sorry I cocked up.' I realise I have international visitors to my blog who might not know that's slightly cheeky slang for 'I messed up' or 'made a mistake'.
