LOTV Retirement card

Oh, I do hate school holidays - last week ruined all of my crafting plans and housework got behind so I've been playing catch-up the last few days.  Now the sun is out the garden needs lots more attention too.

At last, I've managed to make a card - it is for someone at work who is retiring this week.  I thought this LOTV stamp was ideal for a lazy retirement.  I hope his wife has a big list of jobs for him to do - I know that I would have!  

All 3 stamps are from LOTV - and I've coloured the main image with pro markers, keeping the design fairly simple, adding a little bit of faux stitching and a few bits of card candy.

I am going to enter this card into the following challenges:

Sunday Sketch and Stamp - I used their sketch
Ladybug Crafts Ink - Masculine card
Papertake weekly - Anything goes
Cards for Men - blue and black
Lexi's Creations - card for a man
Designed 2 Delight - Masculine card, no flowers

Hope the routine gets back to normal this week!

Thanks for looking,

Love the card Amanda, just wondering if I might know who it's for. I havn't shown it to him just in case. If I'm right, I can confirm that the list is in existance and getting longer by the minute.
Love reading your blog, keep up the good work, you are so talented.
