The People Who Make Us Happy

Hi everyone!!!  Today's post is a quick one before I head out for a little day road trip.  I feel the need to look at shoes and new paper and maybe treat myself :)  I thought I would post the cards I made last June for my coworkers who were leaving our school.  The woman in charge of our Sunshine Fund asked if I would make the cards this year as mine were better than store bought (how sweet!!).  I had to make three....and then, guess what?  I got my transfer!!! LOL  I received the store bought card!!!  Isn't that funny?  So the coworker who gave my little going away speech had to make a point of saying that I wasn't going to get a beautiful handmade card and even wrote this in my card," I will not sign this ugly card!"  LOL  It was so funny...LOL   I don't mind commissioned cards, but I do feel the pressure of getting them done and that they are well received.  And they were... I had to be careful not to put too many thick embellishments on as they were going to be handled by about 35 staff members signing them....thank goodness for twine!!
I had to make one masculine card and am pleased with how it turned out.  The chocolate panel has been embossed with the PTI woodgrain press...hard to see here.
Okay, I'm out of here!!!  I'll let you know how the shoes and paper quest goes :)  Hope you are all having a wonderful week.  Thanks so much for dropping by :)
