Congrats Card for Hubby

My hubby has been working at Toronto Ambulance Headquarters doing a wide variety of computer work for the last year. He and two others worked on a program for computerized patient care records rather than paper versions. Besides the obvious advantages, it allows records to be analyzed and can be coordinated with inventory to prevent the thousands of dollars lost due to expired medications. His program was entered in a contest for a Merit Award. When they won that, they were entered to receive a Platinum Award at a special dinner and guess what? They won!! I used ESS52 again, the $52 GC prize will be awarded tomorrow.

star congrats

I used my new star Sizzix die to cut chipboard and DP or CS to cover the stars. They are so much sturdier to popped up  when made from chipboard. The tag was cut with a Cuttlebug die. I really like this sketch; I think I’ll come back to it over and over. Inside the card I added a ‘Celebration Record’; it is a small stamp with places to insert the type of celebration, location, date and who was there. His writing sucks so I wrote it in for him. Nice to have a small record of the day.

Enjoy, Rebecca
