Construction Thanks!

Hope everyone had a great weekend. Here in Ohio the temps are reaching nearly 50 degrees and the sun is shining! It's been GREAT! Got out walking with Brinkley a little bit! Hopefully we've seen the end of winter....knock on!
I wanted to share another bucket I did recently.
My mom and dad remodeled their kitchen and master bath. They tore EVERYTHING out. The whole project took 4 1/2 months. My mom wanted to do something for the lead contractor that did most of the work by himself! Over the months she got to know him pretty well and found out his favorite sports teams, adult beverages and restaurants and filled the bucket with goodies. Here's what I came up with on my!

Built Tough and Handle with care were both cut from Graphically Speaking. The little construction guy came from Everyday Paper Dolls. I found paper that looked like jeans and then added tiny silver brads for the fasteners on the overalls. The saw, hammer and screwdriver were all cut files from My Scrap Chick. The pencil and ruler were cut from Locker Talk. Thanks was cut from Don Juan and mounted on a black rectangle.
Thanks for checking it out and enjoy this sunshine!!!
Have a great week!
