Thanks So Much ~ Secretary's Day

Tomorrow is Secretary's Day, so I wanted to create a little "thank you" gift for our school's secretary. She takes such good care of all of us at PES!

I pulled out the 'almost' forgotten Flower Fusion...I know, how could I forget these felt cuties:) My new favorite stamp set, Watercolor Trio, will be available on May 1st in the Summer Mini Catalog. I inked the flower image and sentiment up with markers and stamped it upon a top note die cut from The Write Stuff Specialty Designer Series Paper. I love the muted effect of stamping on DSP, which you can probably tell from my most recent postings (smile:)

Laura's Sketch #50 at 2 Sketches 4 You was the inspiration for the layout of my card...the tucked top note panel is super clever...and I love the long strip down the center...sooooo versatile:)

This coordinating little sticky note holder was whipped up fairly quickly....a little piece of DSP, another die cut, some ribbon...and similar stamping...VIOLA!

Tomorrow's hump day...have a good one, everybody!

Wow! What a great and bold use of the felt flowers. I don't think I could do this because I am such a hoarder! It looks fantastic, though! Also, love the creative use of the Top Note die.

Have a great day!

I'm off to wash windows ):
