Rest and Relax

     When you hit my age, everyone around you seems to be retiring.  I have a little stash of cards made for just such occasions.  Here is what I used.

     My digital image of the mouse was cut out with a MFT stitched oval.  I mounted it onto a watercolor background.  Something told me to bring out my SU! corners punch and I double stacked them,  My little starfish is a die from Gina Marie.  The tiny Happy Retirement stamp is one of my unknown unmounteds.  For embellishments, I used jute twine, aqua Dew Drops and a stained glass charm shaped like flip-flops.

     We are expecting blasts of snow showers today, so I think I will stay in and craft.  Make your Tuesday a good one.

This is adorable! I love that little mouse sunning himself and can almost visualize myself in the same position! Cleverly detailed and such a fun retirement card!

This is too cute! I could go for the beach right about now! That little mouse looks like a Whipper Snapper stamp/image.
