I mustache you a question...

Things have been hectic since we moved. We've been working on several different projects with the house, hosted our first Christmas at our own house (which could be a post all in itself), and are really starting to settle in.

As we start to settle, things in life are starting to pick up. I'm working through the last part of my master's degree and it's been killing any free time I've had. I was really excited to sit down and get to craft something tonight.

This week was a little tough at work, and I have three girls on my team who have been great - shoulders to cry on, and rocks when I wasn't sure what to do next and I made these to thank them for supporting me.

I started with the Movers & Shakers: Zipper dies from Papertrey Ink. LOVE these! They are so fun and add just the perfect little something to a card.

 I stamped these with the mustache from the SP&Company Mustache Madness set.

 Then I added the arrow from PTI's Movers & Shakers: Sentiments and the dotted line from A Little Argyle.
 Each card has a different hidden sentiment, perfectly selected for the girls. 
 On each card, I used a matching base, with a layer of polka dot patterned paper from PTI. 
 The cards looked like they needed something else and a double layer of ribbon was just the ticket.  
Grosgrain in the matching color with a layer of white twill on top. 
It's such a cute set and I'm so happy to have gotten to create something this week. It definitely reminded me how much I love to be in my craft room. 

Thanks for stopping by,
