Retirement Card (Time to Relax)

  Hello, glad you could stop by. Haven't posted in several days. Have been busy with other things. But I finally got to make a card.

My grandchildren's bus driver is retiring so I offered to make them a card to give her. Tomorrow is the last day of school. So I got it done just in time. 

Had decided on making a pretty floral card but then changed my mind and decided on a more fun card.




The stamp set is from Art Impressions called Beach Babe's . This was my first time using this set. It was nice getting a chance to play with it.

Colored the image with alcohol markers. Used S.U. Creamy Carmel Ink with a sponge to create the sand. 

The Time to Relax sentiment was created in Design Space and then printed out.

Added a few rows of Blue and white baker's twine and you can't tell but I added some Wink of Stella to the glass and her ring.

Hoping this card brings a smile to her. She has been their only bus driver. I can still remember the first time that they got on the bus for their firsts days of Kindergarten. I always felt that they were safe and in good care with her. 

Thanks for stopping by. Have a wonderful day and don't forget to stop back by.
