Retirement card

My brother-in-law recently retired from work, and a card was in order.  I saw this sketch and thought its design would work perfectly. The clip art is pcCrafter, the dots are Icing Sugar Candies.

About Evelyn

I created this little blog so that I could have a place to show different crafts that I make for my family, my friends, my students, and myself! I have always enjoyed crafting. I particularly love paper, and that's what I'm currently working with.

      Thanks, Naomi! I’m happy that you’re following me now! I think following by email is the way to go. I actually prefer that to other ways of “following” because the posts arrive right in my mailbox. They come to me; I don’t have to go looking someplace else for the notification. I have followed other blogs and never know if anything new is posted because I can’t figure out how to know if I’ve been notified!
