Thanks A Latte

How many of you know that this is Dental Assistant Week?  I manage 2 dental offices in town.  One for kids and Ortho and another for general dentistry.  If there is anything that motivates the staff at my offices it is coffee cards.  Well, I also like them as a way of saying Thank You.  So I made the assistants cards this week and slipped a Dutch Bro card in the center of them.  Right behind the ribbon.  First off, I love my staff.  If you go into my offices you will see in every one of their rooms cards that I have made for them posted on their bulletin boards.  That makes me feel good.  I hope the girls liked their cards for this week.  I also bought each of the girls a coffee cup to use at these foo foo coffee stands so they don't have to use the throw aways.  They will get those later on this week.  The hardest part of these cards was coloring the images.  Here are some of them.
Gotta love this Whiff of Joy image.  It is definitely one of my all time favorites.  Funny thing is most of the girls said, "looks just like me! LOL"  I wish!!!  I did them all alike, using my Grand Calibur to cut out the card and papers.  Had to make them as quick and easy as I could!!

Now, my real question is why do dental assistants get a whole week and Bosses only get 1 day?  
Wish you could all step in and we could share a cup of my favorite beverage called coffee!!!
Oh and on a side note, I want to thank my friend Dana who made me my awesome watermark.  Have you ever noticed that yummy cup of coffee in there that says "Brenda"?!!!  Love it, thank you Dana!!

Great cards, Bren. As always, you found the perfect paper and ribbon. I am sure that they will love them! And hey, at least you get a day! Research assistants don't have a day. They end up lumping me in with secretary's day. It doesn't fit, but I think they feel badly for me. LOL

Like all of your cards, these have perfect paper and embellishments! And your awesome coloring! I know the ladies loved these and would have even w/o the gift card!

More gorgeousness Brenda! I love them, making a set is harder than making four or five separate cards, so kudos to you. It's nice to see Willow again, too. Don't know what the other comments are about not having your own day: try being self-employed - it's hard to criticize your boss without feeling judged, ha ha. Dee
