Celebrate Administrative Professionals Day

Hello Everyone!
Welcome Back to Carson' s Creations...thanks for stopping by!

Yesterday on my way home from school my hubby called me and asked if I had time to make him two cards for his secretaries. He said he was on the way to the store to buy gift cards and he would buy cards if I was too busy. I told him I had something I needed to do and maybe I would have time. He said he would just buy two cards...YES...that is what he actually said! My body cringed at the sound of that, so...I told him I had another idea. 

I used the seed packet file from the night before...the gift card fit in each one perfectly! Gotta' love when one project file has multiple purposes.
NO store bought cards here!

I used Word (Lucinda Calligraphy) to create the sentiment for the tag (Spellbinders ~ Label Eleven). More 3 Girl JAM ribbon and Miss Kate Cuttables flower.

Here is the free SVG file again. 

I made a few more in different colors, but changed the tag sentiment. Easy Peasy!
Other Material:
card stock from scrapbox 
Versafine Onyx Black ink

Hope you have a great night! Let me know what you think and please share what you are currently working on. Soon I am going to be experimenting with watercolors and stamping. Also, I am curious to know what are some of your favorite on-line stores. I am a bit disappointed with Michaels, Joann, and Hobby Lobby...I need some NEW choices! 

Stay Creative,
