Totally Grateful

Our kitchen drain has been sluggish since right before Easter, and by sluggish, I mean clogged. My wonderful husband tried his darndest for over a week to get things moving, but we ultimately had to call in the professionals (which I had timidly suggested at the beginning of said week-plus, as this particular pipe has been a problem since we bought our house years ago, so I knew we needed the "big guns").

Anyhoo, the plumber made short work of the problem, and was a real nice guy to boot. His wife is a scrapbooker, so when he saw my stamp cave, he immediately recognized the signs of an addiction, lol.  This is the card I'm sending as a thank you (and as a little advertisement, too).
The wrench was heat embossed on Brushed Silver, cut out and popped up on Dimensionals. You can't see it very well in the photo, but the screw and bolts stamp from Lots of Bots was stamped on the left un-embossed side of the Basic Gray panel using Sahara Sand ink. I wanted it to be subtle, but it turned out a little too subtle.

Stamps: Totally Tool, Lots of Bots
Cardstock: Brushed Silver, Basic Gray, Basic Black, Poppy Parade, Whisper White
Ink: Basic Black Craft, Sahara Sand Classis
Accessories: Square Lattice and Perfect Polka-Dots embossing folders, Big Shot Die-Cut Machine, Black Stampin' Emboss Powder, black brads, ribbon (non-SU)
