Bye, Bye Grunge...

Today we have a quick and easy masculine "Congratulations" card and of course I always go to my favorite Guy Grunge stamp set - Gorgeous Grunge.  I'm so sad to see this stamp set go away.  The splatters and splotches are just the right thing for those manly cards we all need.

Night of Navy - 8 1/2" x 5 1/2", scored and folded at 4 1/4"
Whisper White - 4 3/4" x 3 1/2" - spotted with Night of Navy ink
Night of Navy - 3" x 2"
Whisper White 2 7/8" x 1 7/8"

"Congrats" is from Tin of Cards (retiring)
 "to you" is from Crazy About You (retiring)

Inside I added a little more splatter in the corners before writing on the card which will be going to my new boss at the office.  

He was just appointed as Deputy Recorder and I am going to be his Executive Assistant.  Over the last 4 months I've had several people I've reported to, including the new County Recorder for a couple of weeks.  I think this week we've all settled in to where we are going to be and I'm pleased with where I'm ending up.  PLUS, I get to move back to my old workstation that I've been in for 26 years (minus the last 4 months).  I can hardly wait to settle in again!

Thank you for looking in today!  We're almost at the weekend!

  1. Well congrats to you!!! This is a great card - sort of simple but direct and to the point but with room to be playful. Love the inside. He is going to have quite a collection of your great cards to decorate his new office.

    1. Thank you Chris! I'm happy to be back in the cubicle I started in 26 years ago! It feels like home!

      When I put the envelope on the counter in front of my desk he said "what's that"? I said, it's an envelope. LOL It had his name on it! There was a conversation with a couple of other people at my desk, so when he was ready to go in his office, he said "is this from you?" and of course I said yes! He seemed very happy to receive it! He will have a collection, that's for sure! It will be good practice making masculine cards. LOL
