Time to move on with a new M & S job on the horizon.

Good morning all, two mornings on a row I have been organised, will this last?  Probably not.
I love it that the kids are always keen at the start of school term to get to school early.  I am making the most of it as I know it won't last!

Yesterday whilst at work I was asked if I could make a card for our manager who is leaving to another store.  They needed it today.  Yikes!  I don't normally do such a quick turnaround, I had to get my thinking cap on quick smart.
This is what I came up with.

As we are a Simply food branch of M & S I decide to stick with that theme.  I made up the carriers in the present colour combination at work, printing the logo on the computer then added random food buttons from my stash.  Inside reads, "from all the staff at Elgin Simply food."
Hopefully as it is an 8" card there shall be room for everyone to sign it today.

Are you watching the bake off again this year?
Looking forwards to seeing what happens later today.  Is it just me or do you feel the same way, I always want a "mighty fine piece"  (a fancy cake in local lingo) and a cup of tea whilst watching the bake off.  It always makes me hungry for something naughty but nice!

That's all from me today, back into work very shortly so better go and get some breakfast to keep me going.  Have a super Wednesday and more from me tomorrow.

Hi Erika,
what a wonderful card, and so appropriate for the occasion.
Wonderful designing as always.
Sorry I haven't been around lately, I have had family staying with me, and you can't be rude and blog or make cards when they have used their time to visit.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

WOW Erika what a fabulous card you made on such short notice...the food buttons look so yummy...I would have had a hard time using them up on a card to gift away!!

This should fit the bill perfectly Erika. Love the theme and how you have designed it. Great little foodie buttons too - see you knew that hoarded stash would come in useful, he, he.
Hope work goes well.
