Today's Lesson From The Craft Room: Some Things Are Beyond Reason...

Have you ever found yourself staying in a job that is killing you just so you have health insurance? Or maybe you've listened to a boss tell their staff that they have always aspired to be a part of a team like this when you know the team is unhappy, undervalued, and ready to leave? Today I'm realizing...not for the first or last time...that some things in life are beyond reason. They just don't make sense...as a matter of fact, they make non-sense! And it does become almost laughable. So today, I will choose to laugh :)

Today's card was made for a friend to give to his wife for her birthday. The greeting inside says "bark, bark, bark" and underneath that it says "happy birthday." I started with kraft card stock and then used the lace border punch on a piece of certainly celery card stock and attached that. Next I took some designer card stock that I had bought about eight million years ago at Hobby Lobby and cut it into strips and attached the strips to the card stock. The dogs were stamped, cut out and popped up on dimensionals. (They are from the SU set Man's Best Friend...which will still be available...it's just on the dormant list so it's not in the new catalog). The circles were punched using the 1 1/4 and 1 1/2 circle punches. I hope it makes you smile :)
