Card for work!

 Hello Everyone
Thank you for popping by
I may have mentioned before that I started card making when I had to give up my first passion knitting for a while. I was the "mug" that used to buy a card for a team member that everyone used to sign - you know the drill. I was never reimbursed for these and there's 17 of us in the team. A colleague showed me her card makes and I thought I can do that! My very first purchase was a cd rom and now my "stuff" fills a room

Today's card is for the IT manager My "thang" is to make personalised cards. I was lucky enough to win a project disc made by Michelle Jackson-Mogford. It included this layout which I have "pulled" to bits. I found a free font called Juko Typewriter for the sentiment. I just thought it was apt for his job role (and he's a similar age to me and knows how back in the day we had to use typewriters!)

I'm off to Liddl now to see whether or not their offer for card/paper/craft packs have arrived. I may need to pop back on the 1st June!
