CTO Challenge #15 - Retirement

Hey Everyone!

I am sorry that I have not been posting much lately.  I am so happy to say that I am finally finished the wedding invitations that I made for a co-worker.  Between the Save the Dates and Wedding Invitations, I have been totally swamped.  I had to make 50+ of each and did not have a lot of time to do them all.  I must say that I am pleased with how they turned out.  Check back in a few days to see the final results as well as a giveaway to celebrate completion!  I am so happy to be done....LOL!

Anyway, welcome back to another week of CTO Challenge #15 - Create a project with a Retirement theme.  I decided to dust off the Imagine and put it to work.  I made 3 different cards for my retirement card set, although they could be used for several other occasions.  I must say that I liked how these cards turned out and I feel motivated to try to use my Imagine more. :)

I used Enjoy the Seasons cart (which I just won on the Circle blog).  This cart has some really cute images on it which do not just limit you to the seasons of the year.  I cut all the images at 5".  Used my cuttlebug, stickles, bling and white gel pen to add some details to the cards. 

Hope you enjoy!  Comments are much appreciated!
