This is yet another leaving card I've been asked to make on behalf of a colleague.  The recipient is retiring to Sunny Spain and dreams of whiling the hours away growing olives.  I managed to find some cute, cartoon-type images from the Internet which fit my colleagues request and we managed to get a Spanish translation for Happy Retirement and the greeting inside the card which is below too.  I'm going to pop this over to the Pixies Crafty Snippet Challenge as my third entry of the week and hopefully I'll be eligible for the EXTRA special prize if I'm lucky enough to have my name picked from the hat!

I've one more card to post this evening so see you in a little while x

  1. Hi Sarah!

    Wow, brilliant card. Love all those olives - you sure do come up with some great ideas.

    Remember, I do the draw NEXT week for the embossing folders but you've already qualified to go into the sunhat by having three entries.

    Hugs, Di xx
