for my project today, i chose to create a card for hubby to give one of his secretaries to celebrate secretary appreciation week.  
i knew the OA 9 to 5 line would be perfect for the cards i need to create for him.


what would i do without you card?
(click pics to enlarge)


 


i raised the cut-images using 3-D tape

 



i cut the images from the two papers below, aren't these papers too fun? 



 



 

and, here is a detailed shot of the inside of the card and the sentiment
