Retirement Card and Prize

Good evening everyone. First I need to tell you all that I was a lucky girl this week and the winner of  the Lili of the Valley Theme Thursday Prize Draw . I could choose from five stamps and decided on the Cake Glorious Cake stamp. I will try to make a card shortly to put on my blog. How lucky was I. If you want to view the stamp the link to Lili of the Valley and its on my sidebar.
Now for my post. My husbands ex work colleague and  football buddie Graeme retired on Friday and this is the retirement card I made for him
