Act of kindness

Wow wee! In my work we have a lot of lunch business meetings. I am in charge of ordering the lunches. Well we order a lot from Panera Bread (great food).  We always deal with the manager Susan, she is an older Irish woman, straight from Ireland with the brogue!  She is such a super sweet lady and so great to work with. As a thank you for always ordering from her, she came to our work yesterday and gave all the Executive Assistants flowers for Administrative Day. I thought that was so sweet of her. I wanted to show my appreciation by making her a homemade card.

I used an old, old DCWV stack for the pink patterned paper, the pink card stock is coordin'ations. The flower is from a stamp I bought in the dollar bin at Michaels. I used Pink Stampin UP! embossing powder to make the flower pop, of course my favorite pearl pen for the pearls on the bottom and my super favorite crinkly ribbon and a fiskar's border punch.

I hope everyone has a great, great weekend and gets some crafting in!
