Sweet Reward + August Sister Challenge, Day 6

Remember to enter in my card giveaway here!

I went to the Parks and Recreation office to return the key this afternoon, and when I got back to the office, the HR Director (she was on the planning committee) said to me "Tina! Just the person that I was looking for." Uh oh. I hope I'm not in trouble. She pulls out this bag of Ghirardelli Milk & Caramel chocolate squares and gave them to me as a thank you for doing a good job with planning for the company picnic last Friday. o_0 Wow, really?? How awesome! I thought the little saying on one of the wrappers was timely.

Yeahhhh, so with that said...I went to spin class tonight...

Hey, check out my socks that I wore to the gym today. I really don't match socks when I fold laundry because, let's face it, who really cares about socks when going to the gym. The one on the left is a newer one and the one on the right is the exact same sock, just older. Check out how much the pink has faded from numerous washes!

Ok, did I lose you yet? Are you still there? I have cards today, I promise. Just keep reading.

Julie's leaving to go back to school tomorrow, so this'll be the last sister challenge until probably Thanksgiving. For today's card, she picked out the sentiment stamp, the birthday cake and the paper. I wasn't really feeling the paper because the colors aren't as bright as I'd like them to be and I didn't want them to be the "star" of the card, so I cut strips of it instead to stay true to the challenge. For the other card, it's a request from a co-worker. I didn't have a welcome stamp big enough for the card, so I wrote it in with an embossing marker and heat embossed it with white embossing powder.
