A Birthday Card for Duane

Once a month a couple of former co-workers and I get together for dinner after work. It's a nice way to catch up on what's going on in everyone's life. We always go to the Stir Crazy at oak Brook mall. And when we go, we always make sure to get seated in Duane's section.
Why? No, it's not like a diet coke break (get your minds out of the gutter!). We ask for Duane because he's great at his job. He's funny, he remembers our names and what we like to drink, he gets our food orders right (you would think this would go without saying, but we learned the hard way that this is not always the case) and he just makes the whole dinner experience nicer. Last time we were there we found out that his birthday was going to be this Friday, so since we were going to have dinner tomorrow night, you just know I had to make him a card.
I had the perfect set, too! I just love this chef from the Voila set and I thought it would be great to have the head chef serving birthday cake for Duane. So happy birthday Duane! Thanks for everything and you can give this link to your boss and show him or her that you are the reason we keep coming back to Stir Crazy for our monthly dinners!

Great card! You did a very nice job of picking the colour combo and colouring the chef in.

I don't have this set but so far I've liked all the cards I've seen done with it.

If I didn't already have sooooo many stamps I'd add him to my next order.

I'm sure your favourite waiter will appreciate that you thought of him and remembered his birthday!

I like this set too. The card turned out great. I just got this set recently and need to play with it some more.

I love it when you can go to a place and get great service! And how nice of you to show your appreciation.
