Congrats!

I was thrilled when DH mentioned that he regretted not stopping at the drugstore to pick up a card for a co-worker's celebratory luncheon.  One of the guys has reached a significant milestone in terms of years with the company, and I was only too happy to spend a little while in my craft room.

The papers are from Tim Holtz and the sentiment is from Verve's Love Everlasting.  Hubs wanted the card to read "congrats" and not a syllable more; I also complied with his edict of "no flowers or ribbons".  Below are the inspiration sketch from the Card Concept and the Verve Sketch that helped make this card come together.

So thankful for a friend's blessings at work, for a little time to create a celebratory card,  and for your visit.
Blessings,
Christine
