The boss's birthday

The owner of the store I work at is 74 today. He's pretty much turned over running the store to his son but he still comes in every day and takes care of the produce department. Whenever I have a question or a problem I usually go to him first. Sometimes it's just to see if I'm overreacting to something or not but 9 times out of 10 he agrees with my opinion.
No one had started passing around a birthday card yet for him so I took in one that I had made for everyone to sign. Nothing fancy but I don't think he'll mind.
I used my cricut to cut out the cupcake. I'm really enjoying that machine and I think I might finally be starting to figure out how to use it.

My boss is 78 and still comes in every day to work the lunch rush.
I love the card!

I bet he'll love it. 1. Because it is pretty 2. Because it is hand made and 3. Because YOU made it! Lovely!

livintheblues oh no singing. I didn't want to ruin his birthday...lol don't feel bad about the handicap, I suffer from all but number 1 on occasion

Sheri I'm not even sure he knows that I made it but that's ok

Jean I would like to think that if I was the boss at that age I would have retired

Grace he didn't say but then he didn't know I made it. He did however really like the cookies I baked him :)

Fullet I'm so glad my daughter bought that machine for me, I'm loving it

Duni I know I like hand made things better

Jen thanks, it's a start any way :) It seems like it's taken me a while to figure out what I'm doing

Russ thanks. I try not to let it get out too often that I can be nice, then they'll expect it more often :)

B Boys Mom thanks, I had fun doing it

Marg I sure hope he did

Sandee thanks, I hope he liked it. He took it home with him anyway.
