Happy Retirement

Hi, hope you're seeing the sun today. It's very sunny here albeit a little chilly, but it certainly makes me feel happier.
On to my card for today though, I have been asked to make a retirement card for someone who will be spending their extra time doing up their house. I thought I would use the tools die that I incorporated in my card for yesterday, here's how it turned out.

Card Recipe
Embossing folder - Cuttlebug weave
Woodgrain  paper - MME Howdy Doody 6 x 6 pad
Pegboard - Image from the internet
Tools - Rob Addams Tools Die
Letters - Papermania Urban Stamps Madame Payraud's  'Typewriter'
The Ribbon Girl - Anything Goes
See you all later for a spot of commenting,

You are really rocking the men's cards (my biggest weakness). The tools look great again, love how you're set them up like they're on a board. Those typewriter stamps are very cool also, great design :) xx

Hi Lorraine - love this retirement card of yours! I certainly think someone has their retirement mapped out for them - lol! I really like those 'typewriter' letters as well.

Thank you so much for the comments on my 'little bit early' CCC card.

Catch you tomorrow.

Hugs Sue Pxxx
