Enjoy your retirement

Hello everyone!  I hope you are all enjoying the lovely hot weather we are having in the UK!  Well, I know some of you are totally hating it, but I totally love it!  I think my parents made a big mistake for me, emigrating from Hong Kong - I was made for that place!  For those you hating it, well I hope you are finding some respite from it - like lots of cold baths or cold beers!

Anyhoo, just popping in to show you a retirement card I made using the fantastic Great Catch stamp set from the SugarPea Designs Bean Stalk collection... 

I can't tell you how much I love this little guy!  Although raccoons are not native to England, we definitely have these cute critters but they are rarely seen.  I matched him up with Echo Park papers and topped off simply with a MFT die cut button with some twine.

I'm off to finish my crisp cold beer!  Enjoy the rest of your weekend and I'll be back next week some time.  Toodle-oo!
