Homework From the Boss!

This week, my new boss gave me a homework assignment.  My first week on the job I made my new co-worker a wedding card.  So this week my boss said to me, "Can you make me a birthday card for a guy that likes Labs and fishing?"  Of course I can!  (If you let me get out of here at a decent hour sometime this week....he he- that 2nd part was only in my head, of course.)  So last night I sat down at my stamping table and got to work and this is what I came up with:

Stamps: Stampin' Up For Father; It's Your Birthday
Paper: Kraft, chocolate Chip; PTI White; Basic Grey Max & Whiskers
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black and Rich Cocoa
Accessories: Nestabilities, 1" and 1 1/4" Circle Punches, Twine, Button, Martha Stewart Border Punch, Prismacolor Pencils

I don't really have a set that incorporates fishing AND labs so the dog will just have to do.  I think it will work, though, don't you?  I am really glad my boss made me stamp.  I am positive that without the incentive I would have just watched tv and crashed early.  (while trying to stay up and watch the new tv show Covert Affairs- my new FAVORITE, but it comes on too late)  Stamping was fun and relaxing and took my mind off of things for an hour or so- so my boss actually gave me a break.  :)
Thanks for stopping by- I truly appreciate it.  Enjoy your day and I will see you later this week!
