ATC note cards?

Is there such thing as ATC note cards? Well, if not, there is NOW! *chuckle* I was looking for the perfect little note card to keep in my office at work, so when something cropped up I'd have a card all ready to go. It seems like there is always someone in my building who is sick, having a rough time, has had a death in the family, or even that something wonderful has happened to, so I wanted something that could cover ALL those potential senerios! Impossible? I think not.
I started with tiny note cards the same size as ATCs, and went from there. The remixed Fancy Florals set from Verve Visual were the perfect compliment. I could easily interchange colors and the "thinking of you" sentiment seemed to fit every occasion possible! After making these three, I wanted to add one more, so I used a few shades of golden yellow and made a fourth one.
After I had all four, I wanted to add a touch of "bling" so two of them got pearl centers, one got bright red stickles, and one received a blue gem! Simple, easy, quick, and they can cover any senerio that might crop up among my co-workers! (except maybe the one where Bill was late because his dog chased a squirrel into the house and up the fireplace chimmney, and Bill had to climb in there to get the squirrel out, and it bit him and he freaked out and then got STUCK in the chimmney, and his wife had to call the fire department to come help get him out, and take him to the hospital to get a rabies shot, and THAT's why he was late to work!) True story from years ago.
But, even then, one of these little note cards might just be the perfect thing! *wink*

I hate to tell Bill but squirrels do not carry rabies-they are so small that if they were bitten by an animal with rabies they would die almost instantly. I worked for vets for yrs and I also have be bitten by a squirrel. That is funny that he got stuck in the chimmney though. Traci

These are so cute, and I bet Bill would have loved one! Or maybe he still would, because I bet his co-workers still razz him about THAT situation!!

Nice job!
