And yet ANOTHER retirement card...

 Enough already!!  I wanna retire too!!
LOL!  This little card is for a a fellow co-worker of mine who's a BIG fan of my cards!  So of course, he's a GREAT friend of mine....  Bwah-ha-ha-ha!!  No seriously, he's a SUPER nice guy and I'm thrilled for him (and a little jealous too! Ok, a LOT jealous!  Pffft!)  Anyhoo, you hens know men cards are the absolute worst cards to make because you can't make them too cute, too feminine, blah-blah-blah!  Art Impressions to the rescue!!  Goodness, I love their stamps.  This little guy just screamed "Dave" to me.  LOL!  I knew he'd get a kick out of it, and he did.  He said, "That's me!"  Tee-hee!  Ok, so I stamped the image onto some Cannon watercolor paper with StazOn ink and watercolored it with my fabulous Inktense pencils.  OMG, I love it!  I finally found the right skin tone watercolor pencils, and I'm so happy!  These make the perfect companion to the Inktense pencil set! I've put a link to both sets below.  Next, I typed the sentiment on my computer and printed it out on the same paper, then I cut it out with my new quotables die from Paper Smooches.  Swoooon!!    heart emoticon photo: heart cinta.gif
To finish, I added some washi tape to the bottom edge and rounded the corners. Okee dokee, that's it for me today.  I hope you hens have a great day and I'll see ya back in the hen house real soon. {{{hen hugs}}}
