Retirement

No, it's not me. Unfortunately. I was asked to create a retirement card for a colleague, lucky guy. Okay, I probably don't want to wish myself older, but I would love to be able to retire. Just think of all the time I'll have to craft.

This image was one of the MANY which my idol Paula Williamson sent me. Go check her blog http://paulatracy66.typepad.com/paper_possibilities/ and see her beautiful cards. She's a genius.

I thought this little mouse relaxing in the sun is just perfect, as it is hopefully how his days will be spent. Relaxing in the sun, and we do have a lot of sun here.

I coloured it with my brand new Lyra pencils, and baby oil. It was such fun and I just love those pencils. They too, came highly recommended by Paula.

Close up!
I thought that wavy paper was ideal as it looks like waves in the sea. I hope you all agree :-)
Well that is it for today, hopefully there will be more to come this week.
