Retirement Card.

Yesterday was my day off and I feel as if it was a bit of a wasted day! I had one or two things I wanted to get so after I had finished my weekly balance and left my colleague to her work I decided to go to Peterhead, my nearest bigger town. I went to a couple of shops and then Asda to get some stocking fillers, sweets nuts etc. Then off to the garden centre to get the sweets that Mhairi particularly wanted in her stocking. By the time I got there it was past time for coffee so I had coffee anyway and a lovely cherry scone. By the time I finished shopping it was almost lunchtime so I went home for a sandwich! Then it was time to make meringues and try to make meringue nests for when we go to Catriona's on Monday. I also got my cake iced so I just need to decorate the top and find some pretty ribbon to put round it.

I made a retirement card for a friend's husband who retires today. Fred is/was senior chaplain at Grampian NHS Trust Aberdeen Royal Infirmary. He's a lovely friendly caring man and I think he'll be much missed at ARI. I first met his wife, Mary, when she started a cardmaking group a few years ago.

I'm sure Fred's not going to be as lazy as the little chap relaxing on the deckchair here but I'm sure he'll be happy to give up the daily commute. Hope he likes his card!

I used :-
Image :- LOTV cute square.
Sentiment & Card Candi :- Craftwork Cards.
DP :- MME.

I think this might fit the following challenges :-
Creative Inspirations :- Anything Goes.
Charisma :- Anything Goes.

Well I need to do some housework before I go to work this afternoon. Just this afternoon and tomorrow morning and then I'm off till Wednesday. I'm looking forward to seeing Oliver and Poppy opening some presents on Boxing Day and spending time with them. I must show you the card Poppy made but that'll probably have to wait till tomorrow.

Thanks for looking and I'll catch up with you all later.
