A field of Appreciation Cards and a Chinchilla video

I worked on some cards for my staff as part of an event going on at work.  Here is a sample of my cards.  I used an array of paper but also a Martha Stewart punch (round the page), Paper Trey Ink (Flower Fusion set) die cut and stamp with sentiment inside.  The ink used was Jenni Bowlin.  I also clear embossed the center of the flower but it's hard to see and the effect wasn't QUITE as dramatic as I would have liked.   

OK, I know this is what you were really waiting for (haha).  Here's a video of Jim (and then Dwight) playing with their new wood blocks.   Dwight has a little notch in his right ear and is smaller than Jim.  Chinchillas like to chew on wood, especially wood from various fruit trees.... so I buy them fun little blocks that will keep their front teeth trim (they can get long front teeth like a beaver).  The ice cream cone treat has some calcium in it so they get some vitamins when they chew that.
