Erin's Toilet Paper Birthday

There is a funny story that accompanies this card.  It was the Friday before my coworker's birthday, and so one of my other coworkers asked me if I would be interested in making her a birthday card.  She said the birthday girl was artsy and would appreciate a card like that.  So I laughed and said, "And you wouldn't?"  She also laughed and started backpeddling, and I cut in with, "You're such a jock!!"  We had a good laugh about that one.  Anyway, onto the card!  I'm pretty sure the front of this card is from one given to me by my parents on a past birthday (c'mon, what child/cat HASN'T done this once in their life?), and the body of the card is from a construction paper pad from my husband.  It was slightly faded but it works great with the grey tones in the picture.

I kept the inside pretty bare so everyone in the office could sign their messages.  I used cream construction paper from the stack from my husband, and tried out my new ribbon punch across the top and bottom to fancy it up a bit (I didn't have a lot of time that weekend so I had to keep things simple).  The stamps and ink are mine.

Here's the back.. Can't wait til I use up all these stickers and can get a stamp made of my signature!  This is also the first card that I made with my new workstation in our reorganized office.  It was a thoroughly enjoyable experience!  If you haven't seen the transformation, check it out!  JEM
