A Little Bit Of Humphrey

Hi there

Only one week into retirement and I am exhausted, so I decided to check out the meaning of 'retirement' and this is what I found:

1.   The action or fact of leaving one's job and ceasing to work!
2.  The period of one's life after leaving one's job and ceasing to work!

I am obviously a novice at this retirement malarkey since I feel more tired this week than when I was working!!  Still, I am prepared to give it more time and to continue purely for research purposes, you understand,  as I am secretly enjoying myself!!

Today's card was made for a close friend and it was created using the following items:

8" x 8" scalloped card From Crafts UK
Papers printed from Humphrey's Corner CD from Crafter's Companion
Marianne Creatables Die 
Martha Stewart Border Punch 
Magnolia Flower Die from Dies to Die For
Kanban Crystal Gems
Small piece of Mirri Card from my stash
Humphrey's Corner Rubber Stamp from Crafter's Companion
Image was coloured using Copic Pens 
White Organza Ribbon from my stash
Flower Brad from my stash

I loved colouring this image as it was very easy to shade and anyway I just love Humphrey!!

I am entering this card in the following challenges:

I hope you like it, see you soon.
