Happy Retirement Peter

My hubby asked me to make a retirement card for a colleague of his who is leaving work tomorrow after a very long time with the same company.  When my hubby first started on the buses it was a conductor on green Routemasters and then once that was mastered he went into the driving school to be a bus driver.  When my eldest was young we'd sometimes go for a ride on his dad's bus at the week-ends or school holidays.  Memories eh?

This card was made using my Debbi Moore Vintage Transport CD.  I have used some backing papers and decoupage sheet.  I used some scraps of the backing paper for the symbols around the image.  The green Routemasters here mainly did a "101" service so I managed to stamp a "101" to the front of the bus.

Fingers crossed the recipient likes it.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Simon Says - Anything goes
Penny's Paper - Anything goes
CD Sunday - Anything goes
Crafty Catz - Anything goes with the option to use anything yellow
Crafting from the Heart - Anything goes

A lovely story to go with a great card. I like that you went to the trouble of putting the correct route number on the front.
