A Big Hit

Dan asked me the other day to come up with 2 thank you cards for the chief on his boat that was leaving. I was annoyed that he asked for them at 8:00pm the night before he wanted them. I asked him what colors etc he wanted and he told me that his chief is from South Carolina and loves the Gamecocks. I decided to go with the South Carolina Gamecocks colors, but did not have a chicken stamp. I found an alligator stamp and Dan said that would work (I can't remember his reasoning and I don't know a lot about South Carolina). Here's the card I came up with:

The next day Dan came home from work and said one of the guys in his division LOVED the card. Apparently it was a huge hit since this guy asked me to make him a set of these cards so that he could send them out for Christmas! He's buying me a chicken stamp to use instead of the alligator. He also said he thought his family would be interested in purchasing some as well.

I'm pretty excited since he will be my second customer. Who would have thought a simple than you card for a chief would bring in some business????

Hi Caiti re your comment on my card ... to my knowledge you need the embossing mat ... I don't actually use a cuttlebug I own the wizard so not 100% sure of sandwiches you would need to use ... but I am sure you still need the embossing mat.

cute thank you card btw
