Rustic Elegance...

Happy Happy Friday Everyone!
Today, I thought I would Change gears from
a Holiday Card to a Birthday card!

 Don't know if I ever told you that I work at my
son's old Elementary School! I just LOVE it there
and the Teachers are AWESOME! 
When I started working, one of the Teachers said they 
are in charge of the Birthday greetings for the whole staff, 
and asked me when was my Birthday.... 
As I started talking to this teacher, 
she said yeah.. we send out an e-mail wishing
you a Happy Birthday... and I thought WHAT??? Who Does That?

Soooo.. I told her I made cards and that I have a good stash
already and would be happy to make cards for all the
Teachers & Staff - No Charge... Just because... :)
She was super excited and couldn't believe that I would
do that! And I said.. Hey.. I make cards ALL the time
so it's really no biggie and I'm happy to do it...

Any who... So, I've been making Birthday cards for the entire
staff at my school... and I've really enjoyed doing it!
Everyone LOVES the card they receive and can't believe
I handmade them... It makes me feel good knowing they
appreciate the cards that I make and it puts a smile
on their face - I also like the fact that it's more personal
than an e-mail... :) 

Now, after the main details as to WHY? Here is one
of the Birthday cards I made for the Staff --

I just LOVE how this turned out - So Pretty really.... :)
I'm using the Carta Bella Designer Paper collection pack
(Rustic Elegance) - I also added some Clear Wink of Stella glitter pen
on the Arrow, Hearts, Best Day Tag

Cardstock - Stampin' Up, American Crafts
Big Shot, Silhouette Machine
Ribbon - 3 Girl Jam (No Longer in Business)
Lg. Stitched Card Mat Die - My Favorite Things

Well.. that's about it for this week!
I hope you all have a FABULOUS WEEKEND!!!
