Hi everyone and happy Wednesday to you! Another quick post from me today, but that's okay because I'm sure you'd much rather me just get on with showing you my card rather than listen to me babble!
Tomorrow is a co-worker's last day. He's retiring and it's going to be so strange to come to work every day and not see him there! I've worked with him ever since I started working at the company in 1979! Anyway, he has seen almost all of the cards I have made over the years and I couldn't let the man retire without making him one!
He is an avid fisherman and hunter so of course I thought of going that route with it, but that isn't me. I like to do something just a little off beat and funny so here's the card
(click to enlarge)
I used an opera singer lady from Squigglefly called It's Not Over Till by artist Brenda Cumming. It's colored with copic markers and colored pencils. I highlighted with gesso which is my new favorite thing to do now! I added stickles to the earrings and the jewels at the top of her dress.
The words were computer generated and the inside says "Enjoy your retirement". I think he will get a kick out of it and I hope you did too!
Oh I have to tell you one more thing! Squigglefly's current design team will be ending their term at the end of this month. December is such a busy month that there will be no challenges that month, but during that time off they will be looking for people who love Squigglefly images and would like to be on the new design team which will start on January 1st and end at the end of June. So, if you'd like to be on Squigglefly's design team, just go read the details here!
Wishing you a wonderful day and thanks for looking!
