Unity Thursday - Coffee & Snow Peeps

Hi everyone!!
Thanks for coming by today....

It was my boss' birthday this week.
I work at a coffee shop. 
I have worked there for a total of 10 years 
(I had a few years off and then went back so not 10 consecutive years).
This is the FIRST time I made her a birthday card!
YUP.....pretty sad.
Especially since she has been KEY in getting me here today...creating cards and therefore working with Unity Stamp Company. 
The first cards I ever made, she loved...and encouraged me to keep on going. 
AND she said I should sell them in her coffee shop.
So I did...and have been ever since....
So thanks to her, here I am today, sharing a picture of the card I made for her birthday....

I knew when I started creating that I wanted to use a "coffee" cup on her just HAD to be....
and thankfully this older KOM came to the rescue...seriously, LOVE my kit's!!
