Goodbye

(This post has been edited....)

LOOK I've fixed my spelling mistake - thanks to all of you for sharing your mishaps with me. I'm glad to know I'm not the first :-))

Another card for today and another colleague leaving, not so lucky to be retiring.

I felt a bit guilty lately, that I've been neglecting my Penny Black stamps, LOL! I have a few, and have almost never used them, and since I've been images from all over, and been buying stamps as if my life depended on it, I haven't used them. The other day when I was stamping out my new stamps, I decided to throw a PB into the mix, and coloured this one up.

I don't really have an image with a group of people waving goodbye, isn't that what you usually get on the farewell cards at the shop? I thought this little hedgehog giving the other a flower to say goodbye, was sweet enough for the occasion.

I coloured this image with my lyras and blended it with sansador, what else these days. I added some glitter glue to the ladybugs and daisies, but it's not really showing on the photo. Cards always look so much better in real life.

This was one of the images I just coloured up in whatever colour came to mind. Well I tell you, I struggled for hours trying to find paper to match. That green pot - it threw me out completely.

In the end it turned out okay, but I am not going to be so quick to just colour up in future.

Off to do my next card..... I'm on a roll for a change!

Great card - that image is just perfect for a retirement card!
Don't you just hate it when you realise you've spelt something wrong on a card... I'm dismantling a child's card I made and spelt his name wrong!
