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.

Humans can hear the difference between hot and cold water being poured. This is because the viscosity of water will go down as temperature increases. As you heat water, it will have more energy and its molecules will be less likely to stick together. Less sticking together results in smaller particles and less force per impact applied to the surface being poured onto.
