Spending a little time crafting today so I pulled out this cute flamingo stamp set that I've had for a bit but haven't had a chance to use. I love it with this simple sketch from The Paper Players. It came together fast and easy.
Here is the sketch

This coming week I have a co-worker and good friend moving on to bigger and better things. It's a good thing but also a very sad time. I'll miss getting to see her everyday. We've had many great days of laughing, crying and just plain venting to each other. It's going to be a bit tougher to go to work knowing she won't be there anymore. I made her these two cards. One is just from me and the other will be the one all my co-workers sign for her.
This one is just from me. I wanted to give her just a simple thank you card thanking her for being there when I needed her and to let her know how much I'll miss seeing her every day.
And this is the one everyone will sign. She is a groomer so I couldn't pass up creating a card using dogs. I know she'll get a kick out of it and know that I was thinking of her when I made it.

I've really been wanting to create some new cards and this sketch over at Fab Friday really inspired me today. I have a friend that's been going through a rough time and after seeing this sketch a card idea for her just popped into my head. I can't wait to see what she thinks when she gets it as a surprise in the mail this coming week!!
