Retirement Card Number One*

Today, my youngest daughter turns 14 years old! And what does she want for her birthday?  A job! LOL  Yep.. she wants to get a job and start earning money. There are only a few places that will hire a 14 year old -- Chick-fil-a, Kroger and Publix I believe. We will see what happens. Between that and Lacrosse and school... I just don't know!

One of my very favorite people at work just Retired last week. I was asked to help get everything together for a party for him. I created two cards and I'm going to show you the first one I made today. His name is Sherman and he retired from being a security guard here. He was absolutely wonderful! I adored him and I will miss him very much.

I think having to make these two cards is what finally got me out of my funk and back to crafting. This card is the one that I created from my husband and I.

The image is from Just Ink Lined -- Albert. For this card I used Copic Markers to color the image. I used a bit of Diamond Glaze on the windshield and lights. I layered the image a bit as well. I created the sentiment on the front and added some stitching around the squares. Those squares are embossed with gears. Then I added the sentiment to the inside as well.

Copic Markers Used:
  • Skin: E000, E00, E01, E11
  • Pants: YG61, YG63, YG67
  • Black: C3, C5, C7, C9
  • Silver: C00, C1, C3, C5
  • Shirt: Y02, Y06, Y08
  • Hat and Slippers: Y02, Y06, Y08; YG61, YG63, YG67
  • Horn: Y00, Y11, Y15, YR24
  • Floor: E34, E35, E37
