Hi, Guy!

I've made a new goal for myself: to give everyone I work with at least one card (not including birthdays) during the school year. Even though it's only 9 months long, the days can sometimes drag, so I want to pop little pick-me-up cards into teachers' mailboxes and onto their desks when they aren't looking. ;)

This 3x3 was made for a male co-worker. I used Jen's Sketch for You to Try (my first time playing with her--can you believe it?). I thought the color scheme worked well both for this time of year and for a man.

Stamps: Essential Sentiments (MFT)
Paper: Naturals Ivory, Chocolate Chip, Summer Picnic & Holiday Treasures dp (SU)
Ink: Chocolate Chip
Accessories: Aged Copper Hodgepodge Hardware

Hey, great card! I love the colors on this and the fact that it's simple yet classic! Although, I still have to say that my fav is the Halloween card, a few posts ago! Hehe! Thanks for sharing and have a great night!
