But today, my two worlds collided. I had to make a card for one of my colleagues who has "retired". It's not really a retirement though. Due to corporate downsizing and massive budget cuts we were all notified about a month ago (officially) that we were losing our jobs.
Luckily, my co-worker has found another job and so he can now 'retire' and move onto his new job. So what kind of card do you make for someone who will be collecting a pension but continuing to work???? Quite the conundrum...until I did a bit of searching through pinterest and found some inspiration.
I always find making cards for males a bit more challenging.
I used these cute Paula Deen cupcake wrappers to add some colour.
This is not my best work. To be honest I sort of whipped it up at the last minute. I just hope that he'll appreciate the hand made touch~
