Manners and More

I met the nicest boy at work today. He wants to be a veterinarian someday, so he came in to shadow the veterinarian to find out more about what it takes. He helped bathe some kittens that we are looking to adopt out. They got quite messy with their food and being so young with no momma cat, they had poopy butts. :) He didn't mind at all and got right in there to help. Other than pitching in to help out like that, what stuck out was his amazing manners!!! I was very impressed with him that when his cell phone rang he excused himself from our conversation and then answered the phone. When finished with his phone call he apologized for the interruption. When he left for the day he shook my hand and thanked me for the opportunity to shadow the vet there.
Ok. So this may not impress everyone but how about when I tell you he is only about 13 years old.

Thinking Of You

I redid this Thinking of You card with Always Artichoke and Ruby Red inks as well as Bordering Blue and Very Vanilla card stocks. I used Hodgepodge Hardware brads and stamped the Thinking of You in Sincere Salutations and used Pocket Silhouettes for the accent piece.

I like to keep it simple if it works!
Thanks for looking!

Praying For You

I was inspired for this card from a card we made at convention years ago. I used the Happiness background stamp to create the multiple sections by stamping them in different colors and then cutting them out. I used the Old Olive Flower Fusion accent under the Rose Red to give a hint of leaves. I also used Everyday Flexible Phrases stamp set, and Old Olive, Rose Red, So Saffron and Kraft inks and cards stocks.

I used the template from the Classy Brass template Punches Plus and punched out the detail behind the flowers on the circle.
