Card for Work

Posting a card that I made today for work. My department at work is thanking another department for the help and hard work they are doing for us. We bought them cookies and they will be delivered to them along with this card ( after everyone signs it). Hoping they will like their surprise and the card too !
Here is the card:

and here is the inside---enough room for everyone to sign:

I think I got a little too close for the picture on the front of the card--not as clear as I would have liked it.
Well, that's it for today.  I give eveyone so much credit that can make 2 or 3 cards in one day.  Maybe if I plan my cards ahead of time it would be easier and faster--you think?
Good bye weekend and hello to a new work week.

I made a St Patrick's Day card for my February Mingle swap at LNS.  This card is for my friend Gail Lass. Gail loves lace and I tried so hard to put some on the front of the card, just didn't work out............ but I put some inside just for her :)
I used my Irish Maggie. It's funny, when you are making a card ( or at least with me), sometimes I struggle with how I want it. BUT, when I'm all done, I then can think of a zillion things I could have done. Ah, will have to try and store those ideas for the next time. Here is the card:

and here is the inside of the card:

The lace was just too wide and didn't look right on the front.
 Have you ever made a card and put it in a safe "place" and then forgot all about it?  Well, I made a get well card for Gail and did that.  Out of sight (and my fault)--out of mind ( that is happening to me a lot lately!!).  Anyway came across the card today and almost died--thought for sure I had mailed it.  Now that is a BIG OOPS.  Sent it off to Gail today along with the St Patty's card--with a note;

Here is the card ---kind bright, don't you think?

And here is the inside to that card:

Ha Ha, maybe it was a good thing she didn't get this when she wasn't feeling well.
Have 2 more cards I'm working on--when I get them done, I'll post them.
Have a nice day.
