Retirement is right around the corner for my boss and me.  In this post, I'm going to focus on a card I made for my boss, who loves his coffee.  I just received my new die and had to play with it.  I just love the coffee cups from the A2Z Digi kits, so off I went to design my card.

I have already taken it to work and my photo of the entire card was blurry, darn.  I've left with part of my card, but not too much is missing.  SInce he is retiring, I thought "Take a Break" would be good with the white side printed with "A Long One".  Happy Retirement is written inside with lots of signatures.  I love the colors, bright and cheery.  This is an interactive card and I thought it would be fun.
