Paper Craft Crew 257

Yesterday was an interesting day indeed. I got a call from Heather around 9:30 asking me if I would come be her house. She had a meeting with her manager at 10:00 via phone and thought that she was going to be laid off. Guess what… that’s exactly what happened. They are cutting about 50% of the workforce from her company. Such fun times we live in. I took a ride with her to her office to pick up her things and drop off her laptop. For a little cheering up after we went by Stephanie’s and went in the pool with the kids. I haven’t been in a pool all Summer and it was nice! After that I came home and worked on a few things. Taylor stripped by later on and we ran a few errands. This morning I’m off to Sue’s for some more Etsy fun! 😀

Mid-week and time for a new Paper Craft Crew challenge…

Today’s card may be one of the simpliest ones that I have made! I was digging around in the Stampin’ Galley and came across a set that I don’t think I have ever used! It’s the Simon Says Stamp To Thine Own Shelf Photopolymer Stamp Set. I stamped the shelves in Kahaki and the books in Thistle, Lake Shores, Catkin and the clock in Smoke. My greeting is stamped in Khaki and that’s the card! It’s a fun card, especially for a book lover! I hope that you like my Design Team card for this week’s Paper Craft Crew Back to School Challenge! Stop by the BLOG and check out the rest of the Team’s cards and enter yours in the gallery to share with us! Thanks for stopping by! Have a wicked Wednesday! 🙂

Products used:

Stamp Set: To Thine Own Shelf Photopolymer (Simon Says Stamp)

  1. I love the book shelves on your card. That’s a perfect stamp set for back to school and book lovers. Sorry to hear about Heather losing her job. You are a good friend to support her the way you do.

    1. Thanks Carol! Another stamp set that is under-used! Heather will be fine! She’s a good friend to me too! 🙂

  2. I absolutely love this card Justin! What a fantastic stamp set. AND, I think this card would be perfect for Heather today to let her know how much you think of her and to lift her spirits. I’m so surprised that there are layoffs in companies on the island. They are hiring like crazy around here. Maybe you guys should consider relocating although that is such a hard thing to do. So glad you have each other to lean on. Wishing you both the best of luck. Love and hugs and hoping you have a Wonderful Wednesday. XXOO 🙂

    1. Thank you Grace! It is a great set! They are laying off people all over. It’s not great, doesn’t look like it will get any better. One day I would like to move, not sure where yet. Love and hugs to you! XOXO 🙂

  3. What a great card with a sweet greeting! Sorry to hear about Heather. That is never a good thing. Good luck to her finding something soon. Enjoy your day!

    Had a fairly good day today downtown, Traffic was not too bad considering. And the weather was perfect so of course I had a beautiful view of the lake front.

    My son is going back to grad school tomorrow, Hard to believe I have 2 kids in grad school. Anyway he made an awesome diner for us. So nice to come home and have dinner waiting.

    BAD NEWS: We have a major clog in our kitchen sink. I know hubby can fix anything but its been 3 hours, I’m getting worried

    1. Thanks Linda! She will get a better job and be happier! It will all work itself out.

      Your son is the best! A direct reflection of you!
