    I used the new WOOD SIGN die along with our new stamp set called HAPPY TRAVELS.

    I kept the design simple and cute.  You can change the sentiment to change the message completely...just because it's a wood sign, doesn't mean that your card needs to havee an outdoors theme.  Think of it as a fun way to frame your sentiment.

    A 19 yr old pizza delivery guy helped save a man’s life by performing CPR on the customer who was turning blue outside the house. He said, “I left a pizza boy and came back a pizza man.” His tip was 25 bucks.
