A Huge Leap for Mankind

Well. Ish.

Yesterday two people were leaving Andy's work (where I used to work too)and they were having a wee do in the office. The boys were at badminton club last night from 5.30 until 7 so I took the opportunity of nipping to the office to bid them farewell. Which was a huge step. I haven't been over the door of the office and haven't looked back at it since I left nearly 2 years ago. Got to be honest I was a bit worried about going back but I needn't have. It was nice to see friends again, even if my time was limited!

So they've moved on from the CS too and I'm sure I'll see both of them again soon.

These were the cards I made for them.


Stamps 
Dandelion Wishes - Inkylicious

 Ink 
Memento Cocoa Brown

Embellishments 
Pearls
Lace
Seam Binding Ribbon

Tools
Circle Nesties
Alium Embossing Folder
Big Shot

With this card I've used LotV James and the flower but I have given him a champagne bottle instead using a Stampendous stamp and I cut his paw a wee bit (it wasn't painful) so that he could hold it.

Champagne Bottle - Stampendous

And one of the folk was leaving got a poem written for her by a friend from the Dundee office. I got one too but on this occasion he actually recorded himself which he sent to Andy and I burned a cd and made a box for the cd using the envelope punch board. The sticker is from a sheet from Designs on Pine. 



 Thanks for dropping by today.
