A quick Thank you!

Hello everyone!
Just poppin' in real quick to post a simple Thank you card I made this morning.  It's definitely a CAS one and that's what I wanted.  One of our security guards at work who has worked here since I started 8 years ago has decided to retire.  Today is his last day so we are planning to have a small celebration for him.  I wanted to give him something he can keep and hopefully he will realize how much he will be missed.  I had a few of my co-workers sign the inside, I know he will be touched by this.

This card took literally 10 minutes to make!  Woot!  The stamp I purchased from Michael's was from the $1 bin, the dp is one of my favorites from MME, it's a double sided.  The sentiment is stamped on the back of that striped paper.  Used some vintage photo distress ink for the sentiment as well as distressing the edges of the dp.  Love the spellbinder label I picked to create the focal point.  With a fun button and some twine this card was done.  I love these kinds of cards and am so happy when I can accomplish one.  And look no Copics were harmed in the making of this card!  hahaha!! 

I really would love to make more of this style of cards.  They are easy to create and are pretty versatile especially with the right sentiment.

Okie dokie, time to split...  I hope you'll stop by later for my Farm Fresh Challenge Friday challenge post, until then Mahalo for stopping by!

Here is a picture of my friend Jovana, Paul (retiree) & Me at the celebration.  It looked like everyone from the Support Center was there.  He is going to be sorely missed.
Here is Paul with my 2nd mom, Stephanie
