Retirement in Style

I wanted to share this card with you. Yup,  another easel card.  :lol:  My friend and co-worker is retiring after 38 years the end of February and I wanted to make her a card. I wanted the card to showcase someone having fun with what she is doing or going to be doing.   Well, this image  is the one that caught my eye.   I have these Anya stamp sets that I have never used before. I think it is just the right stamp for this card. I am very surprised as it turned our pretty much what I wanted it to.  This never happens to me,  specially when I am in a rush to make a card.  What was really amazing is I finished this in less than an hour, last night.  Now that was pretty quick.  I did have help.  Thank you Friday Sketchers for an awesome sketch.   When I saw the sketch, I thought,  this is  it.  So, an hour later I have my card ready for posting.  This is the time  my stomach cramps started. :cry:  I wanted to post the card so I went ahead to make sure my images were all done and ready.  Then, all of a sudden my puter shut down. :cry:  I was in so much pain last night, I didn’t bother to power the comp again.  Yes, I didn’t save anything, and yes I was pulling my hair, and of course talking to myself again and you all know what else.  :oops:  not just because of the pain but because I forgot to save again.  So starting today, I will keep in mind to save every so often. I will be giving this card to  Ann, my friend tomorrow before her party. I won’t be able to stay for her party as I am scheduled for training for work all afternoon when her party is ongoing….Anyway, here is a closer look at Anya.

I am glad to finally have this card posted.  I was even able to enter this into some challenges: 

Friday Sketcher – Sketch

Anyone for Anya– Something completely different.   I have a few out of the ordinary thing for this card.  First this is the 1st time I am using this stamp.  My first time to enter into this challenge.  Another,  only used one paper. It is not easy for me to use only one paper :lol:  I love collage, remember. Next, 1st time to use my crocheted flowers. Why,  well I wasn’t too happy with how the flowers turn out.  The crocheted hearts were okay to me.  So now you tell me, I really hope they look okay.   Next, this is only the 2nd  time for me to use brads, ribbon/bow and flower all together in one card.  I still have trouble using ribbons/bow even with my bow easy. :cry:  I also have trouble putting all these embellish together.  I hope this will count.
