Hi Everyone!  Now I know that I've said it before but I have to say it again - I absolutely, unequivocally have the BEST boss in the world.  She was on vacation last week and before she left, she gave me a VISA gift card.  Then that's not all - every day throughout the week, she would text me to tell me where my surprise of the day was located.  OH MY GOODNESSSSS!!  It was so much fun and made me feel so special.  

Day 1:  Flower Pinwheel
Day 2:  Bag of Hershey's Kisses (favorite candy)
Day 3:  Red and Black Drinking Glass with Cap (the kind you can take in your car and drink coffee out of) with a bag of Cashews Nuts inside (my most favorite kind of nuts)
Day 4:  A beautiful smelling room diffuser
Day 5:  Three movie tickets for my family to enjoy 

Now didn't I tell you that I had a GREAT boss???  Well, there's just some of the proof. 

So of course, I had to make her a card to thank her for her generosity.  Using my Silhouette Cameo, I made the card below in less than 30 minutes.  I already had my paper picked out when I decided which cut file that I would use for the card.  All I had to do was place the paper in the right spot on the mat to cut the different elements, load the mat, and press cut.  

Then I assembled all the pieces and then cut out the envelope which was another cut file from the Silhouette Online Store.

I can truly say that I never thought that I would love a machine more than I loved my Cricut Expression.  Well, I must confess, the Silhouette is quickly becoming my most favorite machine over the Cricut. 

Well, thank you for stopping by today.  If you're someone's boss, think about the people that work for you and how you can make them feel special.  It only makes them work harder for you.  Mom and I appreciate your visits and your comments.  Until another day, God Bless You!!  Donna


  1. Donna, this is gorgeous! I love the papers, so bright. I love Silhouette cards, too. They make it so easy.
    What a boss!

  2. Love the colors in this card and only 30 minutes to make. Makes me want to buy a Cameo.


  3. Wow that is an awesome boss, lucky you. Love the card you made for her and the papers you picked. I too LOVE my Cameo


I appreciate your comments and visits. I hope you will come back soon.
