Many Thanks!

Hello...yes.....I have become one of those annoying once a week bloggers. Sorry to all those that have sent me emails wondering if I fell off the face of the Earth. No, I am still here just working for my gas money.

Speaking of gas money, have I told you how much I LOVE my job at the bank?! Last week we were all greeted with a wonderful surprise in the form of a $500 check. The check was accompanied by a letter that basically said gas prices in Chicago were the highest in the country (I just paid $4.20 the other day) and that the Chairman of the Board wanted to help ease the burden of our travels to and from work! Needless to say, it was a HUGE suprise that brought people to tears. Really, it was unbelievable to have such generosity given to all 70 employees.

Even though I called the Chairman of the Board at home to say thank you and to tell her what perfect timing her surprise was I still made her a card. This is the card that I made with my new Martha Stewart butterfly punch. The thanks sentiment was punched with a Cuttlebug die from the Olivia alphabet. The flower was made with the SU circle and scallop punches. All pattern papers are from SU.

Thank you to those that asked about Maddie's arm. She is doing really well and is adjusting to having limited use of her arms. Bailey has stepped up to the plate and become her assistant. Very cute.

Ok I am off to spend my weekend doing lots of, shopping, organizing, and celebrating Father's Day.

See ya on the blog!

This is a wonderful "Thank you" card. Your punched butterflies and cb cuts are a perfect touch!

What a fabulous workplace!! I wish all employers would be even a fraction as considerate with their employees :)
However, I think we have you beat in gas prices. The lowest price here is $4.59 (I'm in Central California). Luckily I'm a teacher so I can just hole up in my house and scrapbook the next couple of months since I don't have to commute for now.
