Being Late

I'm rarely late.
Although I don't like wearing a watch and all the clocks around the house do not give the same hour, I manage to be always in time. Maybe my Swiss ancestors passed on an inner clock...

But I often forget dates... I don't know if it's due to the fact that I'm getting older or that I care less than I used to do when I was younger but I tend to forget. Not important things, of course, but some details like birthdays or things like that.
What worries me most is that I always remember birthdays of older friends while I forget those of my most recent friends...

When I saw this lovely snail in the Doodle Dragon shop last year, I decided it was perfect for a card (maybe more than one...) to say sorry for forgetting and being late...

I've made it in pretty girly colors but I think it could look great in blues or greens, too.
I printed the paper from an old file I've had for ages (but it was saved as flower paper, so no clue of where it came from), some DCVW hot pink paper (a wonderful shade of hot pink!!!) and a matching ribbon.

I love the face of the little snail... it's the same face I should have when I realized I've forgotten something...

This card is for the floowing challenges:
