Another Retirement

There's another retirement at my office. At least some one made it all the way before they decided to put us all out of a job :-)) This is for a guy who has worked for the company since he left school and has been there about 38 or 39 years now. That is a life time!

I used one of the latest Elzybells releases, called Gardening Ted, which I am dying to order, but have to save up a bit before I can spoil myself again. Paula luckily sent me this gorgeous little thing, I absolutely love it, and do yourself a favour go and see her creation with this image. I was SO happy when I saw it amongst the loads of images she sent me.

I did things a little different than my last 4 or 5 cards, I chose the paper first and then coloured the image. It actually does seem to be a lot easier. I always used to do that, but then got bored and just coloured up images as I felt, and have found it a bit difficult some times to find paper to match.

I coloured it with my Prismas, and have to admit, even with the 120 choice that comes with the Prisma, I still used one or two of my Lyras as well.... just couldn't help it. I blended it with Sansador and cut the image with my nestabilities die. No glitter on this one, cause it's for a guy, but I was so tempted though to put some on the little flowers. I guess it wouldn't have gone down too well with a 61 year old guy.

Now, I have to share something REALLY exciting, I don't know how I am going to sleep tonight. I made it onto the Stampingbella Challenge post!!!! Wooooohooooooo!!!

Go have a look at the latest challenge, oh boy have the design team come up with some gorgeous cards! And if you scroll down a bit and a bit more and maybe a bit more, you will see this design of mine. I feel so honoured.

yay you're famous!!
and I love this card for your workmate. I have no idea about employment law in SA, are there any laws about minimum redundancy payments?
I never learn - I know its easier to pick the papers first, but I still get too excited and go straight for the colouring in then have to spend ages raking through papers to find just the right match
