Hey all... having a grumpy morning so far today. I do the banking and business stuff for Bruce's business (he is self-employed and does computer storage system management, currently contracted to a large company on a long-term contract). Each month I am responsible for billing the customer for his hours, making payments to the government, paying out employee expenses, payroll.... and today, a combination of a stupid computer and me making little mistakes and I was ready th throw the entire kit and kaboodle out the freakin' window. Argh! I am not an accountant or a business manager by trade... what I know I have learned over the last 5 years. And honest? I hate my job LOL!

But, the day is still early, the sun is shining and I am off in a few minutes to get a pedicure and get my gel nails filled. I think I'll stop at Starbucks on the way.

I created this card more than a month ago to accompany the birthday gift I got for my SIL.... the card and the gift are still sitting at my house as Kelly's been out of town a lot and the times I've seen her husband (Bruce's brother) I've forgotten to take the gift. I'm hoping to get it to her soon!

Kelly is kind of a classy lady so I needed a kind of classy card. I am a big fan of black and white with a splash of colour so I thought that was what I'd do for this card. The patterend paper is by Imaginisce, the ribbon is from Michaels, the brad is from Imaginisce.... I used the Swiss Dots Cuttlebug Folder on the white strip of cardstock. The sentiment is by Lizzie Anne Designs (Say It In Script).

I hope my Monday turns around.... and I hope you have an awesome Monday!

Hey Grumpy girl..thanks! I picked up the ranger scraper today, along with other stuff that I don't really need but really really WANT. Sounds like you're having a bad day..You need to get a massage too along with your nails.
