Some People Make the World Special

Oh, I had soooo much fun making this card this morning :D  It's my first official day of vacation (although, perhaps Monday will be as I'm always off on weekends :) ).  This card is for the first Viva La Verve July challenge.  I was tempted to go with the last inspiration photo, but that fabulous shower curtain in the second photo lured me away :D  It reminded me of Basic Grey's Green at Heart paper.  I also thought the large circle would be the perfect place to try out a Martha Stewart doily as inspired by Dawn McVey a few months ago.  I'm still addicted to cork flowers (ok, how many addictions is that now? LOL).  As I made this card and picked the sentiment...I started thinking of the secretary who works at the school I just tranferred from.  She is such a sweetie...I made THIS CARD for her but think I will send her this one too as she was so kind to me over the years we worked together.  She always noticed if I was having a hard week and always greeted me with a smile (and/or hug if needed...).  Leaving people like that (in addition to the kids) is the hardest part of transferring.  Anyways....I love the way it turned out :D  I hope you are having a lovely day and lazy morning now ends...onto housework :D
