Happy Secretaries' Day

Hello friends... It is Secretaries' Day in South Africa.  Last night Kendall asked if I could make her a card for her boss's secretary and I thought I would share it with you today.

I started my career out as a Secretary, so I have a lot of empathy and respect for all secretaries.  They are at times very under-valued and it is nice that we have this special day to honour them for all the hard work that they do.  So, here's wishing all secretaries out there a wonderful Secretaries Day !  May you be spoilt with lots of flowers and choccies !

[Note Wendy, no pink !]  Thought I'd go for red, white and black this time.  A completely different colour scheme to my usual pink... hehe   The image is a Bella one I think, not sure of the name though.  Kindly stamped for me ages ago by Meahni, a fellow SA stamper.  She's been missing in blogland for a while now and I miss her cards as she's an excellent colourist !  The doilie is a gift from another SA stamping friend, Debbie.

I made a bit of effort and decorated the inside of this card as well.  I used a lovely Great Impressions floral stamp (C036) to create a little border where the message is to be written. You can just see a little peek of it in the pic above.

That's it for today.  Wishing you all a super one and thanks so much for popping by! hugs Sharon x
