Fusion - Happy Retirement


For Fusion Card Challenge this week I only used the sketch. I needed a masculine card and I just loved this sketch so that's the way I went.

My husband and I have been using the same taxi driver for about ten years. This driver is a gentleman and a very good driver as well. Each of us have had many long conversations with him over the years and we've gotten to know him well. His service has been exemplary and I always felt safe in his car. I always knew he would be there to pick me up, or he'd arrange for someone else to collect me, but he NEVER ran late and he ALWAYS showed up. Our wonderful taxi driver has finally decided to retire. This is his last week in the cab. He drove my hubby to the airport on Monday, but won't be on the job to bring him home this week-end. I'm so sad. I'll miss our conversations. Hubby and I gave him a bottle of Highland Park whiskey (from the Orkney's where my hubby's family are from) and I made him this card. From what I hear, he appreciated it.
I used PTI Meadow Greens stamps. The "Retirement" is Stampin' Up!
Isn't that Easter centrepiece in the inspiration photo gorgeous?

Thanks for coming by to visit.

What a wonderful thing to do for your taxi driver. Your card is perfect for a retirement and he would have been so touched, I'm sure.
