Thank You for your Business

My resident lawnmower is starting a business. Last year, he mowed our lawn and one neighbor's for pay. This year, he placed an ad in the subdivision newsletter, advertising his services. So far, 2 homeowners have hired him to mow for them while they are on vacation.

Bob thought it would be a good idea for the young entrepreneur to thank his clients for their business. Who did he turn to for a unique thank you? His resident cardmaker! I just handcut both strips of Old Olive and mounted them on Cool Caribbean card stock. The words "before" and "after" were stamped with Summer Sun ink with the tremendous help of the Stamp-A-Ma-Jig.

Hope your week's off to a good start. I open the next 4 days in a row, so I'm not sure how creatively inspired I'll be. I'd love to hear if your children are doing anything to earn money this summer.

This is just a little larger than a 3" x 3" card, because my son is NOT a man of many words.
