For Derek

Happy Tuesday to you and thank you for visiting.

I've made this card for my husband's cousin who is retiring this month.  I think he's counting the days down now!  Happy Retirement  Derek. xx

This is my first attempt at triple stamping and it's something I've been meaning to try for a while.

I used a Hero Arts stamp set for the images and "It's a Special Time" sentiment which I stamped with a versamark inkpad and embossed with detail silver embossing powder.

I added the dark blue and tartan ribbons and the silver brad, all from my stash.

I would like to enter this in the Really Reasonable Ribbon blog challenge and Try it Tuesday Challenge "Clocks and Watches"

Lovely and thoughtful card. I always appreciate a hand-made card over a store-bought one. I hope the recipient appreciates it, too.
