Thanks for the push

This is my second last post for Doodle Pantry this month as a guest designer, "sigh". (I'm going to try for one more on Thursday) My son asked me to make him a card for his boss who is leaving the company at the end of the month. Steven is a computer programmer and so is his boss, so... I couldn't resist! Believe it or not I actually hadn't done a card with these guys yet, how perfect is that! And I made the card red, white, and blue, 1 because its masculine but 2 because Doodle Pantry is sponsoring Paper Playtime Challenge and the theme for the challenge is using a digi which is red, white and blue! Hop on over and take a look! I've also entered this into:
