It's Monday Already??

I don't know about you, but it seems like my days off just flew by and it was time for work again. YUCK!! Oh, well. You gotta have money to buy stamps, right? ;) So off to work we go (oh yeah- we might want to buy some food and pay some bills too......).

The project I have for you today is a masculine card for one of the drivers I work with. He is one of the hardest-working, nicest guys ever. It's hard to believe he's still really new at this job because is is doing excellent work. He has been really sick and so I made him a card for everyone to sign and mail to him.
I broke out a Scrappin' kit I've had for.....oh about a year now. That's right- I just now broke the plastic on it. :) (I will look for the hoarders' anonymous support group as soon as I finish typing this....) I used the Dream Tree stamp from Unity. You can buy this individually OR as part of a gorgeous set called Growing In Unity. I have the kit because I like to have stuff to go with it....what can I say? I'm a girl- I like to accessorize. The sentiment is from the Unity Kit Simply Said.


I hope it cheers him up and lets him know we are thinking about him. It seems these days it's harder to find someone with a good work ethic and he really has one. AND he is always nice and polite to me. I really wish I could say that for all of the drivers I work with. :) Thanks for stopping by and feel free to send a prayer his way.


Stamps: Unity Dream Tree, Simply Said

Ink: Brown Stazon, Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Antique Linen

Paper: River Rock, Old Olive, Chocolate Chip, SU DSP

Accesories: Ribbon and twine, Aged Copper Brads, Basic Grey file kit for distressing the edges.
