Happy Retirement

Another 'guy' card...yep,!!
Pretty easy 'man's card using once again the 
'Fancy Shoe' die from Tutti Designs.

I cut a circle and embossed it to look like a golf ball.
Like I said in a previous post, I struggled using this shoe die,
but ended up loving all 3 cards I made with it.

Now a little story about this card.
It ended up NOT being a retirement card, but a
'from thankful me' card.
My grandson  that had the ATV accident is headed back to California
to 'Project Walk' on the 16th of July to help him
gain more movement in his legs to walk again.
There is a local fund raiser each year that is a golf outing
and they give all profits to someone that needs help.
This year they gave it to Caiden to help with the $6000
he needed to get back to California...
that was awesome!!
So my daughter and I stamped the thankful sentiment (from SU)
and simply placed it over the happy retirement one
and this is their thank you card to the family for donating..whew..makes me cry!!
Caiden will graduate high school in 2 years and his goal is WALK
across that stage to receive his diploma!!
