Retirement Card & Contest

So my boss is retiring, and today was the last day I’d see him…I had already made a ginormous card for him for everyone to sign (12×12 using 12×24 card stock)

But I wanted to make him a card just from me to thank him for being such a great boss for all these years….. And since I’d already used golf, I wanted to do something different…so I made him this card.. I really like this stamp set, and it seemed like a fun idea…

I don’t have a lot of retirement stamps – so I hand wrote the sentiment – since he has to make a lot of decisions at work, hopefully the most difficult decision he’ll have to make in retirement is choosing a cocktail! I will definitely miss him – but I’m sure he’ll love retirement!

Cheers card: DCWV neutrals paper stack, stamps by stampin up, colored with Copics
Golf card: 12×24 paper, everyday paper dolls cricut cartridge

So looking at my Flipboard app tonight I noticed there was a retirement card challenge – so I’m entering this card into challenge!

In case you didn’t stop by the blog hops this past weekend, I’m having a contest on my blog…

(can be animal).

3) If you use product from or mention any of the following in your post, you get one extra vote each:
Crafty Card Gallery App – a great way to get inspiration on the go! – a great way to search for cuts on your Cricut (formerly known as Cricut Search – great online scrapbook/craft store – my favorite new tool – easel for your layouts

4) On 6/1, voting begins. You have until 6/10 12 PM, PST to solicit votes… There will be a post with more details on that.
