Stop by and check out these holidays as I am sure you are going to want to remember these holidays and include them in your card making projects!!!!!

My  recipe:
8 1/2” x 11” blackboard, folded in half
8” x 10 inch patterned vintage dots, corners punched
7 appropriate photographs to match desired sentiment (all images are copyright-free, royalty-free and trade-free)
Printed sentiments on vellum
Dark brown textured cardstock
Vintage grid patterned paper, source unknown
Silver nail head brads
Distressed edge scissors
Stapler and silver office staples
Black grossgrain ribbon
This isn’t original, we’ve all seen the variations of these go by via Facebook, email, what have ya’. I have taken basic materials, and our biggest resource, the internet, to create a quick and simple, yet thoughtful and full of sentiment card to that overworked, underpaid, underappreciated, underutilized, overcriticized Administrative Professional in your life!  With simple materials that we all have in our toolkit, I was able to whip up a not so ordinary layout for a not so ordinary occasion!

Craft happy~
