I had no lack of craft time this weekend, in fact I think I spent more time this weekend making cards then I have in the past two months. I was asked to make a retirement card for my boss who is retiring in July. I was quite flattered but in the very same breath a little wide eyed. It was quite the task to say the least. I ended up going with a card book idea, the card would need room for close to if not more than 100 well wishes. 15hrs later this is the first page, no it did not take 15 or so hrs for the first page but I am only going to show the first page. I figure that much time I would spread it out a little then show the end product.

The card is made up of 4 double-sides 'pages'. Too try to blend all the pages in I tried to use a paper pack I had from Close to my heart - Veranda. The idea for the card was 'more time to do some of the things she loves'. Golf, travel, shopping, winter sports, and boating.

Supplies: Designer Paper-Close to my Heart –Veranda, Stampin’ Up!-Naturals White cardstock, Memory Box- Leafy Branch, Comotion Rubber Stamps-Leaf Spray, flower punch, misc gems, Scriptina Pro font, Making Memories-square eyelet.

Besides this rather large project, I also managed to attend a Stampin' Up! workshop. I figured I could use a follow-me card experience I plum wore my creativity out.
