Foxy Hello...The Card Concept #40~Forest Friends, Share Joy Challenge #4~Sketch + Clean and Simple

Hello..the last day of September. Already!

Last year, we implemented a new student information data system in our district and oh my stars! Talk about a steep learning curve!  Through all the disarray and yes, chaos (technology is amazing...when it works), we had a guiding light: an admin assistant, Bobbi, from a neighbouring school board, whose expertise helped us over and over and over to navigate some turbulent waters.  I can't count the number of times I made *HELP ME* calls, which were but one batch of the many she received over the year from the other admin assistants in our several schools. She came to my rescue - in person or with instructions patiently given over the phone or by remotely taking over my computer and just 'getting it done' - every. single. time.

My card - inspired by Share Joy Challenge #4~Sketch + Clean and Simple, featuring Taylored Expression's Little Bits Fox and Hello die,


is heading to Bobbi...a hello to a wonderful colleague and an incredibly sweet individual!


I'm also sharing (Clean and Layered) at The Card Concept #40~Forest Friends


Wishing you a most marvelous Wednesday; thank you for visiting!
Hugs,

"What Does the Fox Say" ??? Well, thank you in this case! Super sweet! Could that embossing folder be any more perfect? I don't think so!

Wouldn't it be good if we all had 'Bobbi's' in our lives from time to time! She sounds like an absolute treasure, so no wonder you want to send her some love. And what a super lovely card this is!! That little fox is so sweet and I love the embossed pattern on the kraft CS, that is a genius idea!! Hope you've had a relaxing weekend. Ours was super hot and windy but I had so much fun with the kids. They are asleep now so I can catch up with everyone and see what they have been making. Yay!!
